Meet the Owner Mr. A. Charles Childs

In the Spring of 2001 Forest City Cremation Service opened its doors to the City of London and the surrounding area at the corner of Richmond and Oxford Streets.

The opening of Forest City Cremation Service changed the face of the funeral industry in a progressive way paving the road for families who wish to keep arrangements basic and simple for themselves or for a loved one who has passed away.

In 2005 Forest City Cremation Service outgrew that location and moved to a modern, barrier free location with free parking located in the Talbot Court building conveniently located at 341 Talbot Street in London, Ontario.

Mr. A. Charles Childs, licensed funeral director  since 1983, saw more and more families looking for basic cremation and burial services as well as anatomical  donations to medical science through the bequeath  program at the University of Western Ontario.  Forest City Cremation is in cooperation with all three crematoriums,  Mt Pleasant Cemetery, Woodland Cemetery and Forest Lawn.

Serving families in the Middlesex, Elgin, Bruce and Oxford  Counties area for over 30 years, Mr Childs has an outstanding appreciation for those who wish to keep arrangements simple and are cost conscious.
