First Memorial Funeral Services® has served British Columbia families since 1961 and we now have 13 locations throughout British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.
We began serving the Nanaimo area in 1973 from a small funeral home in the district of Cedar, at the south end of the city. Due to First Memorial Funeral Services' philosophy of professional, courteous service at reasonable prices, our business grew steadily. The need to become more conveniently located and the requirement for a larger facility prompted the construction, in 1983, of our current funeral home and chapel at 1720 Bowen Road, in the heart of Nanaimo. Easily accessible from highways and major thoroughfares, we also serve many families in other Central Vancouver Island areas such as Ladysmith, the Alberni Valley, Parksville and Qualicum.
Our commitment is to serve families in a warm and friendly manner. We have several licensed Funeral Directors whose ongoing training and education allows us to meet the individual needs of each family experiencing a loss. Our consulting staff assists families to pre-plan their future arrangements and our administration and support staff make sure all runs smoothly. Our dedicated professionals are long-time Vancouver Island residents, combining over 150 years of funeral service experience in this region.
First Memorial Funeral Services in Nanaimo is proud to be a member of the Better Business Bureau and the Funeral Service Association of British Columbia.
