About

At First Memorial Funeral Services, we have been serving the wonderful people of Kelowna during their times of need. Our Kelowna funeral home team creates touching funeral and memorial services that honour each life. We're here to support loved ones through emotionally difficult times and find ways to pay tribute in a meaningful way. 

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.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"Honestly each moment of connecting with each person was outstanding! I felt heard and cared for right from the first phone call. I was in a state of shock and Carolyne Gamble helped me so much to feel better instantly. When I went in I met with Carolyne and I was shocked by her ability to sense what I needed with a presence of love and care. I brought my son with me and she was so incredibly kind and thoughtful and made us both feel calm and looked after. We both felt so blessed. She looked after each step with incredible precision, efficiency and focused care. I did not have to worry about a thing at any time during the process. Whenever I had a question she was there with the exact answer that I needed. I love her spirit, energy and character of who she is. I appreciate her ability to customize my experience and take ALL the stress out of the journey of letting go of my Mom. I would and have already recommended Carolyne Gamble and First Memorial to many people with confidence and conviction. It honestly was the most kind, caring, compassionate, gracious experience I could have ever asked for. I did not expect it to be so easy and I am so grateful. I thank First Memorial for having such great leadership and thank Carolyne for making such a positive difference in my life!"
