For privacy reasons, some families prefer that a password be set up for their service.
If you are prompted to enter a password, you will not be able to watch the service without it. Please contact the Funeral Director or a family member of the service you wish to view and ask for a password if one has not been provided to you.

Network issues can also affect the quality of live streaming. To make sure our customers can still view services without potential disruption or impact to quality, we provide post-service recordings so families can still view the full service while having an uninterrupted experience.
If the video is still not playing, click on the Vimeo logo on the bottom right of the video to watch it natively on the Vimeo website.

Live streaming is currently a free service, and as such, we cannot offer a refund for this service. We do assure our customers that although there is a possibility of internet or other (non-SMCT) issues impacting viewing in ‘real time’, families can still participate in viewing a service by viewing a recording after the conclusion of the event. These recordings will be made available for download by close of business on the day of the funeral or burial service.
Your family and friends can still participate in the same way, with the only difference being that if there are internet issues, they will need to view the service via a high-quality video recording provided after the conclusion of the service. They will be able to download or view this recording from the same livestream page by close of business on the day of the service.
