My overall experience with Mcinnis & Holloway was beyond satisfactory,from the professionalism of the two gentlemen that transferred my wife from Rosedale Hospice to your facility at Chapel of the Bells,and all throughout the whole week from start to finish.The best words to use to describe all of you involved in the preparation, funeral services,and the great care of my wife's body and everything in-between is compassion,attention to detail,and of course professional excellency. Your institution is number one in my evaluation and opinion. Thank you all so very much for your service,i would recommend your business to any and all who are seeking. Warm and Kind regards, Wendell Pitre.read more

Eastside Memorial Chapel is Calgary’s first “community concept” funeral home. This location contains architecturally-designed areas to suit the surrounding neighborhood’s ethnic communities with specific customs and traditions.

Although Eastside Memorial Chapel can accommodate ceremonies for all faiths and cultures, this unique approach recognizes Alberta’s rich ethnic and cultural fabric, and the need for everyone – regardless of background – to mark the passing of life with affection, dignity, and respect.

Although every ethnic group has many different cultural traditions surrounding the funeral service, Eastside’s design addresses ethnicity in some of the following ways:

  • as part of the funeral service for some ethnic communities, offerings are burnt, so Eastside Memorial Chapel has a fireplace in it;
  • some ethnic groups have traditional all-night wakes for members of their community who have died, with family and friends in attendance. To help with child care into the night, Eastside has a separate room containing couches, games, and a VCR for children; and
  • at night, the funeral home and parking lot are secured and families may use a private entrance for late night viewings and all-night wakes.

The unique design of Eastside Memorial Chapel is a continuation of McInnis & Holloway’s commitment to providing a variety of services for Calgary and area families. As part of this commitment, Kathy Cloutier, manager of Chapel of the Bells, researched and wrote “Customs and Traditions in Times of Death and Bereavement,” a guide which covers a variety of ethnic traditions specific to funerals and grieving.
