Direct Cremation is when there is no visitation with the deceased present. Then the body is placed in a cremation receptacle (container) and transported to a crematory. The cremated remains are placed in an urn and made ready to have visitation at the funeral home with the remains.

MEET THE DIRECTOR
Dingwell Funeral Home has been part of the Souris community since 1912. In 2017, ownership of the funeral proudly shifted from Gary Dingwell to a fellow Islander Nathaniel Lamoureux.
As a Souris native, and proudly bilingual, Nat, his wife Jill, and their two daughters are proud to carry on the Dingwell’s proud service to both the French and English communities of Souris as the oldest family-owned operation in Prince Edward Island.
Now is the best time to make difficult choices, and who better to make them but you? Dingwell will work with you to figure out the details of your funeral services beforehand.
Though difficult for some, planning ahead is truly the most responsible and generous thing to do. By reducing the burden on your loved ones, you allow them to do what they really want- to celebrate you and all you mean to them in life.
Plan your details now, and know that the end of your life will happen like rest of your life- the way you wanted it.
A time for joy.
