Here at Central Funeral Homes we are constantly updating our technology to keep up with current trends and advances so we can offer you many services directly from our website. We know that it is important to remain connected to family and friends from home. Just recently we were able to integrate Sympathy Cards for each family. You can now go online and purchase a sympathy card, fill out what you want to say, sign it, and it will be mailed directly to the address you chose. You can also purchase little gifts to send to the family. This is a great way to stay in touch and let family and friends know how you feel and that you are still thinking of them.
With families who wish to scatter their loved ones ashes, what has been available has not been very user friendly, causing difficulty during the scattering, at a time when you need to not worry about the urn and concentrate more on the loved one and family. I have been researching different options, and have found these tubes to be designed and engineered to simplify the scattering process. I have 4 different designs on site for families to choose from. No waiting for an order to be placed and waiting shipping time. These Tubes are under $100.00, please feel free to contact us for more information. 888-828-3880 or
In this day of technology, keeping up with the latest gadget and how it can change your life is quite a challenge. But here at our office, we are constantly finding new ways to serve you better and to do so through technology. For example, Skype, you can skype to make arrangements, or do so over the internet with our firm. You can listen to the funeral service anywhere in the world you have internet. This can only be done through our funeral home in this province. We are now offering you to purchase TRIBUTE GIFTS directly from our site also. These gifts can be given to loved ones and friends, it shows you are thinking of them in their time of need. These gifts are truly appreciated . It helps knowing there are people who are thinking about them, and that someone cares. Another exciting bit of technology is our MOBILE APP. It has been in the works for the last couple of weeks. It should be up and running soon. When we do something of this magnitude, we make sure it is done right. It will look as great and user friendly as our web page, and useful tool for the families on the go. If there is anything you think that might benefit our funeral home that is not currently offered we welcome your comments!!!

You may notice a change in making condolences on line. This change is made for the security of all our families, to continue our commitment of quality service. Due to the high number of spam and unwelcome internet advertising that most companies are experiencing, we have made it more secure that families are receiving only the condolences meant for them. This will make one more step for each person leaving a condolence, but I am sure you will agree, that the spam coming through unattended emails and such can be very aggressive and in poor taste. We take this very seriously, and have increased security measures to prevent this from happening. If you experience any difficulty with our security measures, please contact us for help. I would also like to caution the public when leaving condolences on other public sites to be careful what site you choose. Especially sites that set up obituary sites for families. You can be assured that our site is safe, and we do not sell information to advertising companies. We do not contact you with advertising or spam mail. Sometimes when an obit is placed in a newspaper, they then send this to an online obituary site. Please beware when leaving information and condolences. That site can keep your information for possible contact for advertising in the future. I do not allow any obituary from our families to enter those sites. All information is kept secure here so families and you are protected from spam. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like any information or ways to protect yourself when online. 888-828-3880 toll free or 709-489-3880 both 24 hours answered by staff, not an answering service, or email

How large of a carbon footprint do you wish to leave? This seems to be a question more people are posing to themselves as they become more socially and environmentally aware. We hear it everywhere, to protect the environment, recycle, reuse and so on. Mike and I have asked ourselves the same questions and although we can get overwhelmed by all that we can do, we decided to take it step by step. Our first step was to replace our fleet of vehicles with more economically and gas friendly ones. This has been done quite successfully. Our next step was to find a way to offer our families the same option of going green. It has taken awhile but we are now one of the first funeral homes in Newfoundland and Labrador, and the only one here in Central Newfoundland, to offer our families a totally “Green” option. We can now offer stationary that is 100% recycled, our embalming procedure is a totally environmentally friendly chemical. It has taken our supply company 5 years to develop this product, so that it will still provide all the benefits and not be harsh on the environment, to a casket that is made with no metal, a finish that is made from vegetable oil, to recycle materials for the interior, all while still holding to our high standards of quality and appearance. This casket is manufactured to the standard and is labeled as “Green” So please if you have any questions or would like to further look into this option please call us at 709-489-3880 or email us
Our reception room is now open to all families It is located on the opposite side of our building (from parking lot) It has it&#039;s own entrance and is wheelchair accessible. There is a caterer available to help with selections. It can sit approximately 40 people with room for up to 60. It is great for smaller families or groups. To look at the pictures you can go to the Our Firm button on the top left of this page, then scroll down to our facilities, then Grand Falls-Windsor, reception Lounge. Or if you would like to see this room or rent this room for meetings please do not hesitate to contact us at 709-489-3880 or email us at

We provide our families with an open door policy. Please feel free to contact us 24 hours a day.
