A Kelowna funeral home with a heart

Lobby at First Memorial Funeral ServicesThe Kelowna branch of First Memorial Funeral Services is located at 1211 Sutherland Avenue. We opened in January 1983 with the goal of helping people with a professional and compassionate approach. Over the years, we've made many significant changes over the years as we continue to adapt and meet the needs of the Okanagan Valley community.

Beautiful chapel area

In 1993, we renovated the chapel area to create level-entry access and to expand our seating capacity. This allows us to better accommodate larger gatherings. Now, the chapel can comfortably seat 110 guests with room for overflow seating as necessary.

Reception space for family and friends

The addition of a fully serviced reception facility gives us the ability to better continue to offer unique and customized ways to celebrate our families love ones. We are able to provide high end catering options as well as coffee and tea services. We believe our associates can help create the perfect tribute for your family.

More modernization updates

Most recently, the front of our building was completely removed allowing us to construct a very modern and beautiful building. We also updated all of our flooring. Today, First Memorial Funeral Services in Kelowna is truly a full-service funeral home, able to meet the diverse needs of families in our community.

Cremation services

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.
