What Sets Us Apart?

Differentiator 

At The Mundell Funeral Home, every effort and attention is focused on those to whom we provide service. Care, comfort and compassion are at the core of everything we do, from initial discussions to final arrangements.

 

We believe that our elegant facilities, knowledgeable and compassionate staff, and rich history of serving the community of Orillia through three generations of family ownership combine to truly set The Mundell Funeral Home apart.

 

In addition to the facilties, staff and history of The Mundell Funeral Home, we are extremely proud of our Commitment to Accessibility and our Family Care Program. Information on both is provided below.

Committment to Accessibility

WheelchairAccessibleFrom arrangement offices and selection room to lounge, visitation parlours, chapel and reception room, our entire building is accessible without the use of stairs. We also have wheelchairs available for use within the funeral home.

HearingImpairedAnyone with a hearing impairment is encouraged to request an individual hearing enhancement unit which provides direct feed to a small pair of earphones. There is no charge for this service.
 
Our chapel is furnished with cushioned pews to comfortably seat 120 guests. To accomodate larger gatherings, we are equiped with a system that allows for closed circuit viewing and listening of the service from rooms ajacent to our chapel.

 

Family Care Program


What is Family Care? Family Care is a service we provide, without charge, following the funeral or memorial service. Its sole purpose is to help survivors resolve some of the practical matters that can be most difficult after the loss of a loved one.


The list below will give you an idea of the ways in which our Family Care Director is prepared to help. Our practice is to arrange for a time at your home within a day or two after the funeral or memorial service. Because we know there will be many things on your mind, you need only plan an hour or so.

 

Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Security

  • application for lump-sum death benefit
  • application for income continuance

Retirement and Pensions

  • private, provincial or federal application for survivor's benefits

Insurance

  • updating beneficiaries on existing policies

We know that much is demanded of you in the months following a death. Our sincere
