Where to Begin
Navigating funeral services can be unfamiliar ground for many individuals, characterized by various processes, associated costs, and products that are often challenging to discuss. Our primary objective is to alleviate any sense of uncertainty by offering transparent information regarding the array of services we provide.
The Arrangement Process
Upon request for service, one of our licensed funeral directors will meet with the authorized legal representative of the deceased to initiate the arrangement process. If the deceased has a will, the “executor” assumes responsibility for arrangements and signing funeral documentation. In the absence of a will, the funeral director, following the “order of priority” under British Columbia’s Cremation Interment and Funeral Services Act, identifies the legal next of kin. Information regarding the deceased’s and family’s wishes, whether for burial or cremation services, is gathered. The funeral director collects essential personal details for the B.C. Vital Statistics Agency, including birth details, healthcare and social insurance numbers, and primary occupation. This information facilitates death registration with Vital Statistics and enables the funeral provider to generate necessary documentation, including the original death certificate.

100 Mile Funeral Service was founded in 1978 by Ian and Del Gunn who had previously owned and operated a Funeral Home in Northern Manitoba for a number of years. Ian’s reputation as the local funeral director evolved in the Cariboo, and his son Shane began working with him in 1992. Shane and his wife Meg purchased the company in 1997, and in 1999 established the funeral home at its present location on Cedar Avenue in 100 Mile House where it still remains today.
After having served the community of 100 Mile House and the outlying areas for close to two decades, 100 Mile Funeral Service expanded to Williams Lake: BC and Cariboo-Chilcotin Funeral Service Ltd. was established. Our organization, serving both 100 Mile House and Williams Lake is grateful to our genuine, professional and dedicated staff who possess an exceptional ability to attend to all communities. We will continue to hold the needs of the individuals we serve in the highest regard, and strive to provide the highest level of service in your time of need.
