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.
FAMS has participating funeral homes and/or transfer services in Ajax, Barrie, Bowmanville, Brampton, Cobourg, Colborne, Cookstown, Newcastle, Oakville, Orangeville, Oshawa, Peterborough, and in various parts of Toronto. Information is also made available concerning funeral providers within Hamilton and District and in the Niagara Peninsula.
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.
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.
