Service Nova Soctia warns Nova Scotians about unlicensed activity at Bedford funeral home

Service Nova Soctia is warning Nova Scotians about unlicensed activity at a Bedford funeral home. 

A news release from the province says Trevor Tracey, the owner of T.J. Tracey Cremations and Burial Specialists, has been charged with accepting money in advance for pre-arranged funerals without holding a licence to sell them. 

Tracey pled guilty to a charge under the cemetery and funeral services act last Thursday. 

He has been asked to pay a fine of $1,500.

The province says if a funeral home does not hold the proper licence, it could mean no money will be set aside to cover the cost of a funeral when a purchaser passes away.
