The Funeral Advisory and Memorial Society (FAMS) is a compassionate consumer advocate helping members to pre-arrange simple, dignified and inexpensive funerals. FAMS also provides general information to the public.
At the time of death, stress on family and friends makes it difficult to decide quickly (and sensibly) on the final details of a funeral. We encourage our members to discuss and pre-plan those arrangements and then register with a participating funeral provider.
Currently, FAMS has participating funeral homes and/or transfer services in Ajax, Barrie, Bowmanville, Brampton, Cobourg, Colborne, Cookstown, Newcastle, Oakville, Orangeville, Oshawa, Ottawa, Peterborough, and Toronto. Information is also available concerning funeral providers within Hamilton and District and parts of southern Ontario.
The list of participating funeral homes and transfer services is updated annually to reflect changes in prices or conditions and is available to our members without charge upon request.
Founded in 1957 as The Toronto Memorial Society, FAMS is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization with an unpaid volunteer Board of Trustees. We do not have any financial interest in any funeral home, transfer service, crematorium, cemetery, or funeral products company.
