The Jennett Memorial Centre (formerly McClelland & Slessor Funeral Home) is honoured to provide families with affordable options for cremations and memorials as well as traditional funeral and burials. Established in 1936 as the Jennett Funeral Home, we continue to operate with the tradition of providing compassionate funeral care. Now under the umbrella of Basic Funerals we can provide these services at the most affordable prices in the city.

Direct Cremation Pricing starts at $1,715 final total including services, products, disbursements and taxes. We also offer funeral gatherings including Graveside Services, Memorial Services and Traditional Funerals with both burial and cremation.
