Many who visit our website simply wish to view an obituary or online tribute. If that is true for you, please look to your left for the related details.

However, you may be here to learn more about the steps involved in planning a funeral, or for the basics of making funeral arrangements. We have much of the information you need on this website, but please feel free to call us with any questions.

If you or someone you care about is in need of grief support, we invite you to review our grief resources. Naturally, if you have any questions about what you can expect during the days, weeks, and months following loss, we're available by phone, by email or in person.

The Community Alternative Difference:

John Cunningham has been a Licensed Funeral Director since 1985. Beginning with his great-grandfather, Louis Nicholas Phippen, John's family has provided funeral services for the people of Ontario for four generations. John has had the honour of providing his services for prestigious funeral homes such as Humphrey-Miles, Turner & Porter, and Ogden Funeral Homes.

Affordability: Community Alternative was founded to provide affordable services to the Peterborough Community. By keeping our facilities modest and using existing facilities in our community, we are able to offer our services and merchandise at an approximate average of half the cost currently available in our community.

Locally Owned and Operated: We are not owned by a multinational funeral conglomerate. All decisions are made at the community level and we are able to respond to local needs and conditions immediately. Our caskets are manufactured locally, and we strive to support and promote many of the quality businesses in our Peterborough community.

No Commissioned Sales People: Making funeral arrangements can be stressful enough. At Community Alternative, we are committed to helping families select the services they want without any sales pressures. We encourage you to research funeral home costs and services before you make any decisions. To assist you with your research, we offer our complete price list on our web site, you may obtain a copy at our location, or we would be pleased to mail you information.

As you explore our web site, we believe you will discover many more reasons why Community Alternative is the right choice to assist you in your time of need or for pre-planning.
