Cremation services

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.

History

Our Windsor funeral home history

Anderson Funeral Home & Cremation Centre originally began as H.S. Anderson Funeral Home. Located in the heart of downtown Windsor, it was founded in 1920 by Herbert Samuel Anderson and originally located in the west end of Windsor in the Towne of Sandwich. H.S. Anderson and his wife, Irma, owned and operated a furniture store directly across the street from our building.

Anderson, realizing there was a need for a funeral home in the small community, transitioned from the furniture business into the funeral industry. He attained his funeral director’s license from Banting Institute in Toronto and was among the 1st licensed funeral directors in Ontario.

Growth, expansion

Front exterior building at Anderson Funeral Home & Cremation CentreAs our funeral home continued to grow over the years, a larger facility became a necessity, so we moved to a larger building in downtown Windsor and also operated an ambulance service. In the 1950s, H.S. Anderson Funeral Home moved to its current location, where the family constructed a 20,000-square-foot facility. At that time, our facility was among the largest funeral home establishments in Canada.

Anderson’s sons—Ernie, Bruce, Stuart and Austin—were all raised and active in the business. It was not uncommon for the boys to be called out of school in the middle of the day to assist on funerals and ambulance runs.

In 1986, H.S. Anderson Funeral Home was purchased, and the company now operates as Anderson Funeral Home and Cremation Centre. Although our Windsor funeral home has changed throughout the years, our commitment to providing families caring and compassionate service has never changed.

"My mother was ill and almost didn't come to the funeral. I was able you get her ready to come but I was too frazzled dealing with her to thank everyone for coming at the funeral home and again at the cemetery.
