I am very thankful for Legacy's help as we were planning my Mom's funeral. Matt and his team were friendly and professional and our family knew they genuinely cared about our grief and the plans we were making. Being part of a large family, we had a lot of moving parts. Matt was extremely accommodating, offered great advice, and went above and beyond to ensure our hopes and plans were met. He was available when we needed him and worked efficiently behind the scenes so that everything flowed smoothly. Thank you Matt, for helping us make this day meaningful and memorable - one that honoured my Mom.

2nd time in 6 months we called on Matt and his team. His patience as he listened to the siblings plan. His attention to detail. His time and care with our family at the time of Mum’s passing. We appreciate how Matt helped us through this difficult time. Thank you Matt & team

During one of the most difficult times in our lives, Matt Drury and his entire team at Legacy were an amazing support. Matt did so much to help us in every way, whether it was dealing with our initial inquiries, the planning, or during the actual memorial and cremation. Matt was a true and caring professional. He promptly answered all questions and was completely transparent. He treated us with compassion and respect. He was also helpful regarding our mixed cultural traditions and was able to assist us in ensuring we could respect them. The entire team at Legacy provided a very high level of service in every way and made us feel like family with their kindness.

We have never been to your spot and hope to go to your place one day. The reason for this note is that you cared for Mrs. Ruth Dick. Her family didn't know us but we had two children in her "Creative Child Nursery School". It was totally wonderful and so was she of course. She was always the same and we loved her always. What a wonderful lady she was! Thank you for giving us this opportunity to say thank you in an odd sort of way.

Matt and his team were an amazing crew to deal with. So professional- caring- attentive and easy … sooo easy! At the worst time of your life, they make the process seamless … they do everything beginning to end to help, and they aren’t like an overpriced supermarket - upselling you, they truly want the best for you and your family. Their facility is modern and beautiful. Thank you Matt and legacy for your work for our mom.

We wanted to share our recent experience as a recommendation for Legacy Funeral Services
From the first telephone conversation with Matt, we felt completely confident in his care.
Our mother passed December 24 and Matt was so professional and compassionate, putting our worries at ease over the Christmas holidays. All arrangements were handled seamlessly, respectfully, communications were prompt, and Matt made the untimely passing of our Mother as painless and stress free as possible.
He was very helpful and available to help answer any questions.
Thank you to Matt and his team. You were truly a blessing this Christmas.

In an extremely hard time of loosing my mother Matt and his staff made things a lot less stressful. They were very accommodating while we came up with a plan of what we were going to do since everything was so sudden. They never forced us to buy their products which some places do. We ordered the finger print necklaces and they were in the next day. They gave us time to grieve and worked with us. I can’t thank Matt and his team enough for their services.

Matt and his staff did an incredible job looking after our family. We had a bit of an unusual request. We wanted to perform three (3) internments together. Matt was instrumental in getting us special permission to perform the celebration of Life on the cemetery grounds. The first time this was every done. Matt organized an appropriate officiant, setup a tent, catering and oversaw the service from beginning to end. I highly recommend that you and your family engage in Legacy's modern and forward thinking services. You won't be disappointed. Also please check out their beautiful facility. First class service. Thank you Matt.

Matt and his team are wonderful. My Father passed and we were certainly out of sorts. Matt and team are caring, respectful, attentive, reassuring, positive, and thorough. We certainly chose the right spot to celebrate Dad.

On the hardest day I have ever had to experience Matt was there for me and my family. My daughter was unique, beautiful and fun and Matt created a unique and special day for us to celebrate her life. I will always be grateful to Matt for taking so much stress away and for bringing joy into a difficult day.

Matt has a wonderful funeral home that is supportive beyond belief. It takes all the pressure off a funeral, and is the most accommodating business I've ever been in. If you are worried about next steps after a death in your family, there is no better place in the Barrie area. Highly recommended.

After being on the phone with Matt for less than a minute, we knew we had found the best funeral home for Jason. We have been treated with the utmost kindness and respect. Matt let us know what was going on with every step in the process. On the day of the funeral, the care and thoughtfulness the whole staff had shown us made us feel like we were family. We give them the highest recommendations and will encourage anyone to use their services.

I would absolutely recommend Legacy Funeral Home. The staff at Legacy have been amazing. They were the funeral home we recently used and they far exceeded other experiences we have had. Please consider Legacy Funeral Home should the need arise. You will not regret it!!

Matt was professional and compassionate as he walked us through our difficult time of saying goodbye to our daughter. He took care of all the cross border arrangements, the memorial service and internment, guiding us through each step and ensuring everything was handled correctly and in a timely manner. It’s during difficult times that you need and want someone like Matt! He was equally impressive three months later when we said goodbye to mom. Thank you Matt!

Matt's service and care for our family was outstanding on more than one occasion. We were carefully guided through tough decisions and felt supported by his suggestions and explanations. Matt helped create a respectful and comforting environment for us during a really tough time, and it went a long way for our entire family. It meant so much that we could be present and truly process together as a family, without worrying about any details. His authenticity, genuineness and professionalism was and is forever appreciated.
