Commitment to you
Because we understand that different faiths have different traditions, our staff is trained in the specialized requirements of preparing a loved one for burial or cremation and in the specific order of events for some types of services.
Whether the funeral you are planning is in the West Vancouver and North Shore communities, or thousands of miles away, through the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers, we can take care of all of the arrangements for you, helping to ease your burden in a difficult time.
Commitment to community
Hollyburn Funeral Home is an integral and invested part of the West Vancouver and North Shore communities. We participate in events such as the COHO Festival and Taste of Ambleside. We happily host community car washes in our funeral home parking lot and shuttle veterans to the annual parade and wreath laying at Remembrance Day. We also believe in helping with public education, and therefore co-coordinate a yearly hospice teleconference tailored to professionals in hospice facilities, care homes and hospitals.
Hollyburn Funeral Home is a member of the Funeral Service Association of Canada, British Columbia Funeral Service Association, West Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, The Better Business Bureau and Canadian Association of Retired Professionals.
Established in 1937, we are still located in our original building, with its beautiful stained glass windows, at the corner of 18th Street and Marine Drive in West Vancouver.
The original landowner, John Lawson, named the area Hollyburn when he established a farm nearby and sold waterfront property to people wanting summer cottages. That stream, which had banks peppered with holly, came down the mountain and along Marine Drive, passing right outside our funeral home door.
Much has changed since that time, but our commitment to providing compassionate care to families in a difficult time never will.
