About

Vernon Funeral Home has provided funeral and cremation services to the Vernon, British Columbia, community since 1930. Our commitment to your care has allowed us to continue our legacy of providing the best service possible.

We celebrate life

Let's start with a story. When you choose us as a provider, we'll ask you to share stories about your loved one's life so we can create a unique and memorable tribute that celebrates their passions, personality and individuality.

Was she an accomplished violinist? We can display her treasured instrument in the chapel and a professional musician could perform her favourite songs. Did he spend every weekend boating on Kalamalka Lake? We can have a nautical-themed event and a catered seafood dinner. Of course, if you would prefer a more traditional funeral service, we are happy to do that too. We are committed to meeting your needs and wishes.

Compassionate care

We understand losing a loved one is a difficult experience. That's why our staff works diligently to help families through compassion and personal service. Vernon is a diverse community and we are honoured to serve families of all backgrounds, religions and cultures. With a focus on honour and respect, our professional team helps ensure that every funeral service is unique and memorable.

Comforting location

Our warm, intimate chapel seats 100 guests and features a natural wood finish with an arched and beamed ceiling. Our large, open foyer increases our seating capacity for larger services. Whether you prefer a small gathering of close family and friends or a large celebration with a lot of guests, our adaptable facility can accommodate your needs.

Timeless service

As the city's oldest established funeral home, our guest registry is an 8-foot antique sideboard that is more than 125 years old. Families will also meet a team of dedicated funeral directors with longstanding roots in the local community.

Additionally, we are a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers, offering exclusive benefits and exceptional service you can trust.

We consider it a privilege to help you and your family. Please contact us if you need immediate assistance or would like more information about our services.

"I have never met Kathy but talking to her by phone it was like she was just in the next room instead of over a thousand kilometers away. It was like talking to a friend not a stranger. At a very sad time Kathy gave me the time needed to make decisions, she have me advise, told me to think about it and call her when I was ready. There was never any pressure. I received a pep talk from Kathy the night before we finalized the cremation of our brother. It was what I needed to help me try and get some sleep and get through the next day. I will always be grateful for her kindness through this difficult time."
