Tracing back legacy, dignity and memory at Forest Lawn Funeral Home

Five decades ago stood a serene chapel in the centre of a graceful and enchanting cemetery that was founded in the 1930s. For generations, loved ones and family members, nobility and war heroes have been laid to rest in the peaceful grounds of Burnaby’s Forest Lawn Funeral Home.

Now, nearly 50 years later, it is the same compassion and professionalism that rooted Forest Lawn Funeral Home as a dignified funeral service provider in its communities in 1965 that transcend today. Through the decades, it has grown to accommodate the needs of the thousands of families throughout Canada and the United States who have called upon its personalized care. As a member of the Dignity Memorial network, which is the largest funeral, cremation and cemetery provider in North America, Forest Lawn Funeral Home’s professional and personal services are bolstered by the best name in the funeral services industry.

While the company has expanded since its humble beginnings, Andrew Knapman, the manager at the Forest Lawn Funeral Home of Burnaby, says that the staff and services reflect the same core values that are responsible for the company’s success. The warm and welcoming space, complimented by the empathetic and personable staff are just some of the ways Forest Lawn Funeral Home still feels like that serene, intimate chapel.

In fact, Dignity Memorial was recently recognized by JD Power’s President’s Award, an honour given to companies that display dedication, commitment and continuous improvement to serving their customers. “The recognition from JD Power is a testament to our culture of service excellence that we have built since the founding of our company,” Knapman said.

In every aspect of Forest Lawn Funeral Home, the heart of its cherished history and its core values is distinguishable, despite its growing success and expansion throughout North America. Its dedication to its customers, community, and their loved ones is just one of the reasons why Forest Lawn Funeral Home was and remains an outstanding pillar of achievement within the funeral services industry.
