The Carson Difference
The L. Doolittle Chapel and J.H. Lynn Chapel have always been, and continue to remain, a family business, carrying on the traditions of trust and care since the days of Lorne Doolittle and George Crawford in Orillia and Alexander Barrie and James Lynn in Midland. Our family and staff take great pride in providing compassionate service, treating everyone who enters our doors like family. Our team of professionals has a collective funeral experience of over 100 years, and they are dedicated to meeting all your needs and expectations. When you enter either chapel, you will immediately feel the warm and welcoming family atmosphere.
Since Lorne Doolittle and George Crawford's time, there has been a tradition of affordable and caring service which the Carson Family continues to uphold today. Regardless of your financial situation, we are dedicated to offering services to everyone who needs them. We understand the importance of staying within your budget and are willing to work with you to provide a meaningful service for both you and your loved ones. To ensure that our prices are competitive, we frequently compare them to those of other providers in the area, and we consistently offer rates below the provincial average. Additionally, we provide a price match guarantee so that you can feel confident in your financial decisions while receiving exceptional service in beautiful facilities.
Moreover, we are committed to providing Aftercare to our clients. This service is a consultation provided at no cost after the funeral or memorial service to help survivors, next of kin, or executors deal with estate matters that may arise after the loss of a loved one.
From the very beginning, Carson Funeral Homes has responded sensitively to the needs of people, and after over 50 years, the tradition of trust and care continues.
The staff at Carson Funeral Homes live and work within our community as our friends and neighbours, supporting various service clubs, local churches and community organizations. All of our staff are trained in grief counselling, being aware of, and responding to, the individual needs of every family we serve. Every person and every funeral is different. From traditional funeral services to more personalized celebrations of life, we are committed to helping you create the perfect service for your needs.
