"When a smile glows or a tear is shed,
a memory has been shared
and a heart has been touched."


Welcome to Mattatall~Varner's
. . .

I've Been Thinking...

Perhaps you've attended a funeral recently and that started you thinking about your own funeral.

What type of service do you want? Where do you want to be interred? Do you wonder if you are able to pay for your funeral ahead of time?

There are so many things to consider when planning a funeral - either planning for yourself ahead of time or planning a funeral for someone who has died. No-one likes to have to make these decisions alone. Perhaps your family or friends don't want to talk about death. That's natural. Some people think that if they talk about their own death, it will make it happen sooner; that is not true.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact us. We will provide you with accurate and confidential information. You will not be pressured into making any decisions and are under no obligation. Thank you



At Mattatall ~ Varner Funeral Home, it has been our privilege to serve generations of Truro and area families and it is always our goal to offer the broadest range of choices to meet each individual need. We strive everyday to live up to this commitment and it is our belief that this website will further those efforts.


Through this site we offer you a variety of information and services that we hope you will find helpful. It will tell you a little about us and our services but perhaps most importantly, it will allow you to find details of the services we are currently conducting and, if you wish, to reach out to a family with a memorial or a message of condolence sent through the site.

On behalf of my wife Sheila, myself and all our staff, I invite you to make use of the site. We hope you find it helpful and welcome your comments and suggestions.

Thank you for visiting us.
