The Fraser Valley region consists of the Fraser River in the southwest part of British Columbia. The city of Abbotsford lies adjacent to the Greater Vancouver area and the Fraser River. Development in the area began in 1858 when the Royal Engineers surveyed the area in response to the gold rush along the Fraser River. With a population of 149,928 people Abbotsford is the largest municipality in British Columbia outside of Metro Vancouver. About 18% of the Fraser Valley population is 65 years and over.
When we starting looking at where funeral homes were concentrated across B.C., we weren't surprised that the lower mainland accounted for around 30% of funeral homes. What did come as a surprise however was that the Fraser Valley had an additional 20%. (Note that we are including Maple Ridge and Langley in the "Fraser Valley" with the eastern cut-off being Chilliwack). By our count, there are 20 funeral service providers in the Fraser Valley, with InMemory (as at June 2018) having 19 Fraser Valley funeral homes in our database. It is our hope that this information will help make the process of finding a funeral home just a little bit easier for you and your family.
