A funeral home for all people
Thomson In the Park Funeral Home comprises approximately 10,000 square feet and has modernized chapels. We work hard to accommodate the needs of people of any culture or religion who enter our doors. Our team treats your family with the utmost respect and helps plan a funeral or memorial that reflects your family traditions.
We have a great deal of experience conducting funeral services for the Chinese, Vietnamese, Filipino, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, Roman Catholic and Italian communities, to name just a few. Team members speak Mandarin Chinese, French, German, Punjabi and Urdu.
Personalized funeral and memorial services
Our focus at Thomson In the Park Funeral Home is to go above and beyond to create truly personalized funeral and memorial services. In short, we celebrate life. This means different things for different people, but for us it always entails discovering what a person loved, such as a treasured poem, favourite colour or lifelong hobby, and then incorporating those elements into a service with exquisite attention to detail.
What might your loved one's memorial look like? For a motorcycle enthusiast we might plan a processional of bikes. For an artist, we can arrange an art show. We surprised a family with a meal served on their mom’s favorite dishware, complete with the tomato juice she poured every Sunday. Whatever a person’s passions, we make it a point to showcase the things that someone cared about.
Thomson In the Park Cemetery
Thomson In the Park Cemetery serves the burial and memorialization needs of Fort Garry, Headingley, Oak Bluff, St. Norbert, Ste. Agathe, St. Germain, Fort Whyte, Linden Woods, Wolseley and the Greater Winnipeg region.
The cemetery comprises rolling green lawns with flat bronze grave markers as well as upright monuments. It offers many burial options, including traditional burial, above-ground mausoleum entombment and a cremation garden for scattering and inurnment of cremated remains.
Cremation garden and gazebo
When more and more families began to chose cremation, we opened a cremation garden. Create a Forest has lovely landscaping, meandering streams and towering trees. It provides a tranquil location for people to reflect on a their loved ones' lives. The garden includes cremation boulders, which come in different sizes and shapes and hold urns or other cremation containers.
A handsome gazebo sits on the property and can host a committal ceremony or memorial service.
The Serenity Room
The Serenity Room is a secure, climate-controlled, semiprivate room with glass-front cremation niches that can be easily personalized with photographs, flowers and keepsakes. Family members and friends get security codes to the enclosed space. We recommend this option especially for those who will have older visitors, who may be more sensitive to harsh Canadian winters.
Thomson In The Park Funeral Home and Cemetery are both members of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers, offering personalized service and compassionate care you can trust.
Please call us for any reason at all. We're here for you day and night.
What is now Thomson in the Park Cemetery was founded in 1953 on 34 acres of farmland in Fort Garry.
During the 1950s, Winnipeg's Smith family ran multiple cemeteries in the city, including Elmwood Cemetery. The Smiths eventually sold this cemetery, then called Garry Memorial Park, to the city of Fort Garry. The cemetery became synonymous with quality and grew to become a respected part of the community.
Construction on the funeral home began in 2002. It opened in 2003 to meet the funeral and cremation needs of Winnipeg and surrounding communities.
In the early 2000s, Garry Memorial Park and the funeral home joined with the oldest funeral business in the city, Thomson. Thomson In The Park Funeral Home and Cemetery carry on a deep tradition of unparalleled service established under the Thomson name.
Evolving services for changing times
Through the years, our commitment has always been to help Winnipeg-area families through one of the most personal and challenging stages of life. We understand the death of a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience. That’s why the funeral home and memorial park work together to provide compassionate, professional and personal services.
Volunteer work and community involvement
The Thomson In the Park teams regularly donate their time to nonprofit organizations and charities. We are involved with the Canadian Diabetes Association. Each year, we volunteer to help with its 10K run, and we provide the facilities for its annual gala that raises money for diabetes research. People on our teams sit on the boards of the Arthritis Society of Canada and the Lions Club South Winnipeg. Thomson In The Park Funeral Home and Cemetery are also involved with the Canadian Association of Retired People.
