  • Who We Are

    At Cypress, we are a compassionate and trusted funeral service provider. Our experienced team understands the importance of honouring your loved ones. With locations in Vernon, Kamloops, Lake Country, and Armstrong, we offer personalized funeral and cremation services to meet your unique needs. From pre-planning to organizing meaningful ceremonies, we provide comfort and guidance during difficult times.

  • Our History

    We are proud to be a second-generation family-owned and operated funeral home with a strong history spanning several years in British Columbia. For over 22 years, the Chasca family has proudly served the region, starting in Vernon in 2001 and expanding to Armstrong, Lake Country, and later Kamloops. As a family-owned business, we deeply understand the unique needs and traditions of the communities we serve, and we are honoured to continue our legacy of compassion and care.

    “We are very grateful to the communities we serve and our passion for providing guidance and comfort to bereaved families has always been at the core of our business” – The Chasca Family.

  • Our Values

    After 22 years of operating as Personal Alternative Funeral Services® and Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services®, in 2023, we rebranded under the name Cypress Funeral & Cremation Services.

    The name “Cypress” holds special significance, symbolizing strength, longevity, and resilience. The Cypress tree, a species native to B.C., has become known for its peaceful and spiritual properties. It also has a distinctive aromatic scent that has historically been used during the cremation process.

    At Cypress, we hold steadfast to our core values of compassion, integrity, and personalized care. These values guide every aspect of our operations, ensuring that each family we serve receives the utmost respect, support, and attention to detail during their time of loss.

  • Our Process

    Our services are designed to provide compassionate and professional assistance to families who are grieving the loss of a loved one. We understand that this can be an emotional and overwhelming time, and our dedicated team is here to help in any way we can.

    We are committed to helping families honour the lives of their loved ones in a meaningful and personalized way and providing a safe and supportive environment where they can grieve and heal.


We believe every family we serve deserves the very best, and our testimonials reflect how important service excellence is to us.
