Funeral home is as diverse as its community

Richmond Funeral Home is the only full service funeral facility in the city for a reason. For over 70 years, it has earned the trust of generations of families in Richmond - and it is easy to see why when you witness the exceptional way it celebrates and commemorates lives lived.

“Helping people throughout one of the most difficult times of their lives is something that I’m honoured to do,” Sandra Melin said. As not only the manager but also a Funeral Director and Embalmer at Richmond Funeral Home, her sentiment is shared with every single staff member she works alongside. “We all feel that it is a great privilege to serve the community this way.”

As a part of the Arbor Memorial family of funeral homes and cemeteries, Richmond Funeral Home is both Canadian and family owned and operated. As a result, the professional and compassionate staff have an innate and personalized sense of exactly how to care for their clients. They understand that it is all about celebrating life like no other.

Richmond Funeral Home’s commitment to reflecting and serving the diverse community of Richmond is just one of the details that makes this funeral home stand out from the rest. “We wanted our facility to be as diverse and welcoming as our beautiful city is,” Melin explained. Its multicultural staff made up of many tri-lingual speakers is one way the funeral home caters to its community. Their home is open to various cultural, religious, and ethnic groups to better meet the memorial needs of their local community.

The addition of the modern facility, built in 2004, is indicative of Richmond Funeral Home’s loyal commitment to serving the needs of all faiths and cultures. With an open, welcoming space, the funeral home holds a serene chapel, burning room, reception and state rooms, as well as catering facilities. Whatever can be made available to help the family through the mourning process, Melin said, the staff at Richmond Funeral Home is prepared and happy to assist.
