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.
