"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
. . .

To our valued clients

Currently, we are in the midst of very uncertain times. The Covid-19 virus is spreading and we want to do our part to ensure your health and safety along with our staff.

We are available by phone 24/7 and invite you to contact us if you have any concerns or questions. Our office is open by appointment and we are here to serve you. If necessary to visit our office, please respect the social distancing rules that have been set in place by the Department of Health and Province of Nova Scotia. If you are not feeling well or have travelled outside of the country, please do not come into our office. We would be more than happy to assist you in another way. For those wishing to make memorial donations, please phone us and we can place a card for the family and suggest alternative ways to pay for your donation.

The Province of Nova Scotia and our health officials are enforcing that we take great precautions so as to stop the spread of this virus. We are committed to serving you and honouring the life of your loved ones with dignity, respect and understanding, the principles of our business.

Whereas this is an ever changing pandemic, please contact our office to discuss the service options that we are able to provide.

Our thoughts are with those near and far who are experiencing ill health because of this virus. Our thoughts are also with Government and health professionals who are our front lines of defence and doing their best to control this situation. THANK YOU!

The way in which we conduct our business has been greatly impacted. We do not like this sterile approach, however, feel it is completely necessary to ensure that we do our part to keep you, your families and our staff healthy.

Thank you for your understanding.



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.
