Transport services for funerals, embalmers, cremators and embalming equipment are booming in Canada, but some funeral homes aren’t equipped to handle them.
One of the biggest challenges is the cost of transporting the body from one place to another.
That can be prohibitive for many families and even for those with a low income.
But there are a number of options out there.
Here are some that will do the job for you.
