Acerca de

Vancouver Memorial Services and Crematorium has provided funeral, cremation and burial services in Vancouver, British Columbia, for more than 100 years. Vancouver is a melting pot, and in our decades of service, we have cared for families all backgrounds, cultures and religions.

A welcoming chapel and on-site crematorium

Our cozy nondenominational chapel has flexible seating for 75 guests. The funeral home team is well-versed in a wide variety of funeral customs and rites and is committed to honouring your family's personal preferences and traditions.

Cremation is important in certain religions and cultures, and more and more people are choosing cremation over more traditional burial options, but most people aren’t familiar with all of their choices when it comes to cremation. You may choose a direct cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind; a funeral with the body present, followed by cremation; or a cremation followed by a cemetery service or a celebration of life.

In response to the evolving needs of families, we offer an on-site crematorium with a cremation viewing area. This crematorium provides the peace of mind of knowing that your loved one never leaves our care. 

Let’s celebrate life

Every person's life deserves to be celebrated in a unique way. Our imaginative team excels at planning one-of-a-kind tributes that celebrate a person's passions, personality and individuality. We take all of the things that made a person special, such as a lifelong hobby, favourite colour or treasured poem, and string them together to create an unforgettable memorial.

Imagine transforming our chapel into an art gallery with her paintings on our walls. Envision a motorcycle processional with his beloved bike leading the way. There are as many ways to celebrate a life as there are stars in the sky. If you provide the inspiration, we'll take care of the rest.

Leave the cooking to us, too. Our professional catering service can handle anything from light appetizers and refreshments to a formal dinner with waiter service.

The cemetery

The cemetery at Vancouver Memorial Services and Crematorium is a beautiful place.

Choosing a final resting spot can be a difficult and emotional decision. Our cemetery team will guide you through all the cemetery property options available and answer any questions you may have.

History

Vancouver Memorial Services and Crematorium was established in 1912. It was the first crematorium built in Western Canada. The Vancouver Cremation Society constructed the facility within Mountain View Cemetery, Vancouver’s oldest cemetery, located at the corner of 41st Avenue and Fraser.

The crematorium was initially painted bright pink. Thanks to its art deco design and tradition of service to the community, the building was designated a Heritage Building in 1991.

After changing hands several times, the Vancouver crematorium was sold to the Simpson family in 1916, who operated it for more than 60 years. In the mid-1980s, the Simpsons sold the business. Today, Vancouver Memorial Services and Crematorium is a member of the Dignity Memorial® family.
