Welcome to Grinter's Funeral Home
Proudly serving the people of Cambridge, Hamilton, and the surrounding areas with dignity and sincerity. Nothing is too much to ask and you will always be number one.

Our primary role is simply to go quietly about our business, guiding and supporting you – and ensuring you get what you want, no matter your budget.
COVID-19 UPDATE FOR FUNERAL SERVICES
The government has agreed that we run an essential service in our community. It’s just as important as ever to say goodbye to our loved ones in a loving and meaningful way.
Therefore, we are pleased to advise that we are still having small private funeral services. Because the health and safety of all is paramount to us, we will be restricting the numbers at these gatherings. Please give us a call to talk about this service and other options we can offer you, such as Live Streaming the funeral service.
A funeral service is important for two reasons
A funeral gives people a chance to share their feelings while being supported by family, friends and others in the community who have known the person that has died.
It’s also a time to celebrate the life of that person, to hear stories, make tributes and share memories; the good times and funny moments, their favourite music and unique contributions he or she has made.
Children grieve too, so it’s good to make opportunities for young ones to be involved in some way if they have also been part of the person’s life.
A funeral's purpose and value
The funeral, the days leading up to it, and the burial or cremation are important early steps in coming to terms with the death of someone close. From the time of the death and leading up to the funeral, many people take comfort in doing things they have always done as a family.
You can make a funeral meaningful and especially appropriate for the person who has died by considering the elements that make up this public ritual, including the venue for the service.
