Allow us to support you


After 22 years of operating as Personal Alternative Funeral Services® and Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services®, our Franchise Agreement has recently expired. Accordingly, we are now changing our name in Vernon, Armstrong, Lake Country and Kamloops to Cypress Funeral & Cremation Services. To the many families we’ve served over the years, please know that we’re the same people, at the same address and the same phone number. The only thing that has changed is our name and website address. Our people, phone number and address remain the same. 

Each of our locations are made up of teams of licensed professionals with years of experience and training.  Our teams are comprised of funeral directors, attendants, certified crematologists, and pre-planning specialists. Their experience goes beyond the profession with each team holding special relationships within their local communities. Their diversity in skills allows us to offer you a wide range of options. We offer everything from cremations and burials to eulogies and obituaries for families who have recently experienced a death or those wishing to pre-plan their own arrangements.

Our focus is to provide personalized services which cater to your wishes and requests. We want to commemorate your memories in the way you desire. From traditional burials and eulogies to celebrations of life, we want to identify the right options that will uphold your wishes. For us, our priority is ensuring our services provide peace of mind, support, and compassion for you and your loved ones while guiding you through the decision-making process.
