Convenient, welcoming location
With a large, open-concept facility, Jerrett Life Celebration Centre hosts events of every size and style. We are easily accessible, just south of the 407 and on the VIVA bus route direct from the TTC Finch station. The central location on Yonge Street has plenty of parking.
Our staff speaks English, Italian, Spanish, Cantonese, Vietnamese and Tagalog. Our funeral directors are knowledgeable and practiced in funeral rites from a diverse range of religious and cultural backgrounds. We specialize in international shipping arrangements and have many years of experience in helping families repatriate loved ones.
Personalized funeral services
We believe that every person is unique and that every service should be too. We work with you and your family to create an unforgettable memorial. Start with a story. We'll take it from there.
Over the years, we've conducted funerals and memorials for many Toronto and York Region police officers and public servants. It is our honour to care for those who guide and protect us. We are also certified by the Green Burial Council and provide options that reflect the values of the eco-conscious.
Jerrett Life Celebration Centre opened in 1996 as York Family Funeral Centre. Shortly thereafter, in response to the increasingly diverse population in Thornhill and other areas north of Toronto, the name of the business changed to Hong Kong Funeral Home. A decade later, in September 2006, we joined the Jerrett family of funeral homes as Kane-Jerrett Funeral Home – Vaughan Chapel. In October, 2016, we became the Jerrett Life Celebration Centre and continue to evolve to meet the needs of the Thornhill community.
Today, Jerrett Life Celebration Centre is an honoured Dignity Memorial® provider. When you choose a Dignity Memorial provider, you receive not only the compassionate care you expect from a locally operated establishment, but also the value you deserve from the largest network of funeral, cremation and memorialization providers.
