"I would like to say thank you to the staff and directors of New Haven Funeral Centre. At a time when the world turned upside down, Shelley and her team extended themselves above and beyond all expectations with all aspects of the funeral services of our father George King. They were there from the first call to the final farewell and they are still assisting us. They exemplify care and dedication at the highest level as they were able to address our needs and minister to our family at a time of great sorrow and grief. THANK YOU, New Haven for being a cut above the rest and we pray God's continued blessings and success on your business. "

It's my first experience dealing with a funeral Center and you assisted me in every way possible, you made it quite easy for me during my difficult time and I appreciate the help that you have given.

I greatly appreciate it."

"We were invited to the pre-opening tour of the New Haven Funeral Centre by a friend. The moment we entered the building, we were delighted by the ambiance, and the elegant state-of-the-art funeral home that we saw. The staff at New Haven approached us with such professionalism, care and love. As a result of our experience, we decided to return to set up our pre-planned funeral arrangements. The staff explained everything to us thoroughly, which helped us make our decisions. For us, New Haven Funeral Centre is a place where, for a moment, your bereavement turns to comfort and acceptance. It is a place where one will be contented laying their loved ones to rest. " 

-Clive and Glenda Nicholson   
Your staff and service was exceptional! I have been hearing nothing but good things from my family and friends, of how much they enjoyed themselves and were so happy and pleased with the food, staff and the facility. You are a one in a million Shelley, and words cannot say how thankful and grateful we are to you for all you have done; from the small things such as a hug and smile to the big things such as making my mom have a great send off. 

​I know my mom would have been happy with how everything went and that everyone came, and had a good time. That’s how she would have wanted it. She was full of life and always wanted the people around her to be happy. Thank you for letting us be ourselves at the reception ,and you didn’t rush us out. I know your staff was happy as well to celebrate with us and WE loved that. 
Love you all!
Once again THANK YOU
Karen, Campbell family and friends.

-D. Bascom

The New Haven team provided exemplary, professional service during our family’s time of bereavement. From our first contact to our very last, Shelley and her team demonstrated the sort of care and expertise anyone could ask for during a difficult time.

They thought of details we wouldn’t or couldn’t, shepherded us through all of the fine details, and most importantly ensured that our loved one had a service worthy of her. We can unreservedly say that that New Haven’s service is second to none and would recommend them without hesitation. Thank you for your commitment to respectful, compassionate, expert service.

"On behalf of the Cislyn McGhie's family, we just want to express our heartfelt gratitude to your entire staff for the wonderful job you did in preparing our mother for her home-going ceremony.

Thank you for being diligent in working out the details of the funeral and for your patience in making sure everything was perfect for the service and internment.  Your kindness and gentleness did not go unnoticed.  We believe and know in our hearts that she had the best team preparing her for her final appearance and she would have been pleased.  The way you treated our family, made us feel as though you were part of our family. 

Our Dad said that you did a great job, so that settles it!

Also, the patience that your entire staff demonstrated, the quiet demeanor you exhibited and the professionalism you
showed is very difficult to find under any circumstance. 

It would be remiss if we did not acknowledge Shari for her patience and commitment from the first minute we met her to the very end. No matter how big or small the changes were, the rebounding of mom’s guest book, she handled every bit of it with such professionalism and understanding – Thank You Shari!

The task of a funeral preparation cannot be easy, since different families have varying needs and requests that they want met.  Therefore, it takes not just talent, but loving, caring people to work with different families and to help them through their time of grief, by giving them the assurance that their particular desire and wishes for their loved one will be met, and you did just that.

May God richly bless each one of you as you continue to offer your service to Canadian families."

"Hey Team New Haven!

First of all, what can I say .. You were recommended to me from a few friends and you didn't let them or US down!  For me, the situation still sucks but it's  comforting knowing that my son, was laid to rest with a beautiful service and burial. 


"I have the pleasure of meeting both Shelley and Shari at New Haven, I have to say they are two of the most professional ladies in the industry. I have spoken to several funeral home but New Haven by far made us feel very comfortable during our time of grieving. They made everything seems so easy and accommodated all our request. Other family members and guests also commented on how professional and friendly the New Haven staff were. I would use them again."

Thank you so much for taking care of my Grandmother (Olga Brown) arrangements for the past several weeks.

You did an outstanding job supporting my Aunt Dawn and my Mother Yvonne through such an emotional period.

Thank you for the wonderful job on the slide show.  I recently placed an order through the online site.

Once again I would like to thank you for all the help and support you have given us.

All the best,



 On behalf of Cheryl and I....My gosh, words can’t explain the gratitude that we have for all of the hard work, love, and attention you put into taking care of Dwayne and making today absolutely perfect.
All of the stars aligned when Dwayne passed in regards to planning. Everyone was at complete ease knowing you would be taking care of Dwayne. It brought down everyone’s anxieties and worries with regards to his care. Although it was a difficult day, it was a beautiful day and we owe that to you and your team.

I truly am proud to say the process was seamless and smooth, we could not have asked for a more professional, genuinely caring individual than yourself to have worked with.

We were truly blessed to have met you, you will forever be an imprint in my mind. I will always big up New Haven and make that my first and foremost recommendation to others.

Always Cheryl Rose and Keron 

Hi Shelley,

I wanted to take a moment to sincerely thank you and your team for all the help you've given us in making my Dad's funeral go as smoothly as possible. From the bottom of our hearts we appreciate all you guys did. You showed us compassion and understanding and this is what's needed in times like this.  Through every email, phone call and exception you provide to our family, I am truly pleased and will be HIGHLY recommending New Haven to anyone who has the need. Many were impressed by the little details (ie, Jamaican colors, flag insert, flag flower arrangement etc.) you did, to make it more personal. The food was also amazing!

 We know this is a long process of mourning and we're are trying to cope but the celebration of my Dad's life was able to come to life with the help of you and the kind staff of New Haven. 

Again, thank you. 

With deep gratitude, 

Sebrina and the Smellie Family

Dear Shelley,

I must commend you again and again for your forward thinking and your amazing professionalism with your business! You have done an amazing job with your team! I am so proud of you all! 

I sat quietly at Ian Gordon's funeral a few weeks ago and I observed you lead the proceedings as the Funeral director that day and I had joy in my heart to see you operate! 

This month and every month I celebrate you and your team because you dared to step out on a dream and make it happen and you all made it happen in an amazingly professional manner. I encourage you to keep serving so amazingly! You all have done exceptionally well! May God continue to use you in this avenue! Although I live way out in Pickering and don't get a chance much anymore to get out to Mississauga and Brampton area as when I Pastored in Brampton I can never forget what great work you are doing! After Pastoring in Brampton for six years I was transfered to Scarborough to Pastor. I have been here now for two and a half years but I cannot forget you or the work you are doing! Keep it up and know that you will always remain in my prayers.

​- Love from Rev. and Lady Coleman.
