Thank you for taking the time to visit the Scotland Funeral Home website. As an independent, locally family owned funeral home, we strive to provide a higher standard of personal and professional service to our community and the families we serve. We have taken a great deal of time and effort to make our website as user friendly as humanly possible.

We want you to browse through the different tabs regarding funeral service options and information that we have provided for you. We have tried our very best not to make our website simply an advertisement for our Funeral Home, we want you to know all that there is to know about making funeral service decisions.  We want you to leave our website feeling you have a  sense of now being educated in what we do. Also for you to have a sense of knowing what decisons and options you will have to make in the future, but more importantly knowing that whatever is decided upon, you will be comfortable in the knowledge you have gained from our website.

In closing,  please know that we consider it a privilege and an honour to have been called upon to serve many families in the Rideau Lakes/Leeds and Thousand Islands Regions. Every individual and every family deserve the professionalism, respect and compassion that the Scotland Funeral Home offers. Word-of-mouth is without question our finest endorsement, we take extreme pride in our reputation for caring, for service and for our dependability when it comes to serving our families in need

As always, we welcome any comments, questions or concerns. Your suggestions allow us to serve you better. Thank You

Sincerely,       SCOTLAND FUNERAL HOME LIMITED            Roger Merkley                    Managing Director

Honouring a Life: Memorial Tree Program
PRESS RELEASE Scotland Funeral Home of Elgin / Rideau Lakes has added yet another feature to their continuing line of service and support for their families in need. "Honouring a Life Memorial Tree Program" Scotland Funeral Home of Elgin, Ontario is announcing that it has joined a global initiative on behalf of funeral professionals by becoming a proud supporter of the Honouring a Life Memorial Tree Program. This program is administered through Funeral Solutions Group and is being hailed as a global initiative designed to bring funeral professionals across the globe together to make a difference in our world and a difference to the families they serve. The Funeral Solutions Group is working in conjunction with the Forestry Organizations across the world, they have already established partners in Canada, US., Beijing, UK, Israel and Australia, with more and more countries expected. Funeral Solutions spokesperson Kevin Montroy cites- "The program consists of a beautiful card and bookmark, this stationary component is sent by the funeral home to the families they serve indicating that they have arranged for the planting of a memorial tree for their loved one. In turn, on an annual basis, the species and forest location of each tree is then provided to the Funeral Solutions Group which in turn will be posted on the Honouring A Life website in perpetuity for future generations. The memorial trees are planted in the region of the greatest need to help support reforestation efforts. Dave Scotland of Scotland Funeral Home comments-" This has to be the best program that I have ever provided for my families, especially now in the wake of the devastation that we all have been educated on regarding Fort McMurray, Alberta. I honestly felt this was the responsible thing to do and such an incredible way of giving back to our environment. Each family receives a hand written note on a beautiful card, I then place this in the mail within a few weeks after the funeral service indicating our gesture that a tree has been planted in memory of their loved one. I do this for all of our families, regardless of the level of service they chose. I am sincerely overwhelmed by the positive feedback and gratitude we receive from the families we have served. As Mr. Montroy states on the Honouring A Life website. "The circle of life surrounds us, as one life ends a new one begins" Al Stinson-President of the Canadian Institute of Forestry cites "Working with the Funeral Solutions Group is a real pleasure. Their professionalism, compassion and commitment to funeral service, and the support of their partner funeral homes is truly inspiring" Grey Meyer V.P. of American Forests adds, "We are proud to be a part of this terrific program. Protecting and restoring forests are important efforts that will make a real difference in the fight against reducing carbon emissions affecting our climate and helps make our world a better place" A wonderful feature about this program is that you can go online and visit the Honouring A Life website located at www.honouringalife.org and make your donation in memory of anyone you choose. You can also learn more about the memorial tree program by searching the website of any participating funeral provider, and simply click on the tab for planting a tree or to Roger Merkley @ 613.359.5555 or @ www.scotlandfuneralhome.com

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