Traditional Service & Cremation Services


Les Résidences et les jardins funéraires Bessette offers you a choice between a traditional funeral service or a cremation service. The crematorium at Les Jardins funéraires Bessette was the first in the Haute‑Yamaska region. Both services include visiting hours for family and friends of the deceased, with a church or chapel service.

Traditional service

The traditional service is followed by burial in the Jardins funéraires Bessette cemetery or the cemetery of your choice.

Cremation service

The cremation service can take place before or after the actual cremation. The ashes are then placed in the indoor or outdoor columbarium, or buried in one of the four burial areas in the Jardins Funéraires Bessette cemetery or the cemetery of your choice.

The funeral includes:

  • transportation of the deceased from home or hospital;
  • registration of the death;
  • acquisition of the necessary documents from the physician;
  • preparation of the body for burial or cremation;
  • visitation at the funeral home;
  • church or chapel funeral service.


Les Résidences et les Jardins Funéraires Bessette offers several possibilities for burial options, including a cemetery plot, a niche in one of our columbaria (indoor and outdoor), or a crypt in our mausoleum.

Accord D Financing

Accord D Financing is available interest-free for three months to cover the cost of funeral expenses, giving families the time they need to collect amounts owning from the estate (life insurance, Régie des rentes du Québec (pension board), frozen bank accounts, etc.).
