East St Paul Cremation - Henderson Hwy

Here at Alterna Cremation, we want to make cremation services affordable. Everyone deserves a proper memorial. We offer East St. Paul cremation services that are affordable and simple to access. We’re located on Henderson Highway, so getting to us is easy. We’d like to take this opportunity to explain a bit about our cremation services and the philosophies that guide our business decisions.

Our funeral director, Ashley Newton, was born and raised in Winnipeg. She currently resides in St. Andrews. Having worked in the funeral industry for years, she noticed that many families were looking for simple, affordable memorial services that weren’t available. She also noticed that many families were worried about transparency in funeral services - wanting to be sure they weren’t being taken advantage of in their time of need.

That’s why she created Alterna Cremation, serving East St. Paul and the rest of the Greater Winnipeg area. You can see the price of our Direct Cremation package displayed prominently on our website: $1395 + GST. We offer a wide variety of other services, including our scattering service, urns, and more. We’re upfront about the cost of everything, and we’ll never push you to buy something you don’t need. You understand your budget and your wishes and we’ll help you plan a service that meets your needs.

Cremation is becoming an ever more popular alternative to traditional burials; in fact, today, cremation is more popular in Canada than burials. There are a lot of options available to you when someone is cremated. You can keep an urn in your home to remember them by. You can place the urn in a columbarium. You can divide the ashes among multiple urns so that friends and family can all have one. You can scatter ashes in places that were meaningful to your loved one. When you plan the memorial service with us, we can go over all of these options with you. 

We recognize that East St. Paul is a diverse community; people with all kinds of spiritual and religious beliefs live there. We can create a memorial that accommodates you, no matter what your background is - diversity is our strength. We want to create affordable memorial services for everyone, and that means no one will be excluded.

On our website, you can find a number of at-need services; check out the navigation bar on the top of your screen. This includes being able to make arrangements online, information about writing eulogies, and much more. We want to be a resource that you can access anytime you have questions about memorial services, cremation, grieving, or anything else that might be on your mind when you’re planning a funeral service or when a death occurs. 

In times of grief, it’s essential that resources are easy to access, that funeral homes are transparent and accountable, and that you have a support network to help you with anything you need. We believe it’s our duty to be there for the residents of East St. Paul in their times of need; we’re Alterna Cremation.
