What makes us different?
We supply all the same services and merchandise as traditional funeral homes including register the death with Vital Statistics, supplying Provincial Death Certificates, publishing obituaries etc. however we do some things a bit different such as:
Owner Chris Benesch is the second of three generations of his family in funeral service. He trained under his father’s license in Barrhead, Alberta in 1988 and has been a licensed funeral director and embalmer for over 25 years. Chris is currently a member of the British Institute of Embalmers and has held various leadership positions with Provincial regulatory bodies and Funeral Associations in both Alberta and British Columbia. Chris currently sits on the Cemetery, Interment and Funeral Services Advisory Board with BC’s Consumer Protection Authority.
