The recently renovated Cook Southland Funeral Chapel facility is unmatched in our city. Conveniently located one block from Hillside Cemetery, our facility is easily found and eliminates a lengthy procession to the cemetery. With our own Reception Facility, we have the ability to provide a comfortable chapel for a service and the convenience of hosting the reception without leaving our facility. Our funeral home is also one level, making it friendly and wheelchair accessible.
Our spacious chapel was recently constructed to enhance our facility. It was uniquely designed to comfortably accommodate both large (250 seats) and small services. In addition to this, an area with video feed for overflow seating for up to 150 is also available. With flexible, removable seating, we have the ability to either increase or decrease seating to meet the needs of each family. For mothers with newborns, we have thoughtfully created a viewing area where parents can tend to the needs of little ones.
In addition, our chapel is technically equipped with state of the art audio and video equipment. Whether it be a video tribute or webcasting the service, our chapel can surely meet the technical needs that are most often requested by families.
Cook Southland Funeral Chapel is the only funeral home in Medicine Hat that has an “on site” crematorium. This allows for efficiency and flexibility for families that may wish to witness the cremation or require the cremated remains in a timely manner.
An onsite crematorium also provides comfort in knowing that loved ones remain in our care at all times; transfers to a separate facility are not necessary.
Cook Southland Funeral Chapel is the only funeral home in Medicine Hat that has a formal on site Reception Facility to better service families. The Reception Facility is tastefully decorated and can comfortably accommodate 125 guests. This facility is adequately equipped with audio and visual equipment for sharing memories or playing a video tribute during the reception.
Families are presented with the option of selecting their own licensed catering service. Due to food safety regulations, families are not permitted to provide their own food and refreshments.
