Readers' Choice Finalist: First Memorial Funeral Services

Remembered forever. Meaningful and lasting.


We would like to thank all those who recognized our ongoing commitment to serve the community of Victoria and surrounding area by voting for us in the Professional Services section of the Reader’s Choice Awards in the Times Colonist.


First Memorial Funeral Services seek to work alongside each family to help create funerals and memorials that are remembered forever, and talked about by those who attend as meaningful and lasting.


Our hope is that people come and experience a time with family and friends, and when they leave the gathering they say, “That’s exactly what Mom would have wanted,” or “This is exactly what Dad was like.”


Our approach is your approach. Through our dedicated staff, who are committed to excellence, we are able to design — with you — a unique service. From a traditional, faith-based service to a more contemporary gathering, we are happy to offer suggestions from our wealth of experience that best helps you to honour your loved one.


We would like to serve you and your needs. Whether you require a basic cremation, a funeral in one of our chapels, or a modern celebration of life in one of your favourite locations — we will make it happen. The possibilities are limitless.


We are a non-denominational funeral home and work with all churches and cemeteries. If cremation is your choice, you can be assured that your loved one never leaves our care with our on-site crematorium. Feel free to come and talk with us if that is convenient for you, and if not, we would be happy to come to your home for a visit.


We care about your family, especially in the days that follow the death of someone special in your life. First Memorial is the only funeral home on Vancouver Island that offers an in-house Bereavement Education program and professional Grief Counseling service free of charge for its clients.


At First Memorial, we care about what we do — and we care about you. We have been serving the community for 60 years, and we look forward to continuing to be your #1 choice in the funeral profession. Two locations in Victoria.
