Since 1908, we are an independent company that has been serving Greater Vancouver. Our philosophy has always been based on compassion and care for those who have lost loved ones since we started in 1908. In 1905, Thomas James Kearney first arrived in Vancouver. While he was still running his General Store at Bonanza Creek in the Klondike Gold Rush period, Tom met Catherine O'Connor while visiting Vancouver. She is a beautiful young girl from the area. Catherine O'Connor was a trained opera singer, but she also assisted her mother Brigit in laying out the remains of their deceased parishioner. Tom believed he would be able to get to know Catherine if he worked with funeral directors. When the opportunity presented itself to purchase the Green Simon & Lamp Co. funeral home, Thomas accepted it. Tom eventually moved to Vancouver to take over the business. In 1908, he became the sole owner after buying out his partners. Thomas and Catherine married on July 16, 1915. They had three children, Ellen (Frank), Edmund (Frank) Kearney. Thomas agreed in 1927 to be a partner at Columbia Funeral Chapel, New Westminster, B.C. Tom managed the businesses until a tragic fall caused him to have to retire in 1932.

Kearney Funeral Services made the unpleasant experience of arranging my father's cremation as simple and as painless as I could possibly have hoped for. I worked with Matt Kaiser, who was patient, professional, and accommodating throughout the process. He helped me to honor my late father's wishes, and I'm extremely grateful for that. I also found Brionney's supportive and understanding presence at reception invaluable. Thank you both!

n October of 2020 our brother was admitted to the hospital in Vancouver and passed away a few days afterwards. Can you imagine no family members in Vancouver all of us here in Ontario, the covid pandemic preventing us from being there. Our bother warned us do not come it is not safe. "I will worry about you.' We are a big family from Newfoundland originally and we were with our brother through conference call right to the end. I did a google search and was looking for a family owned funeral home. I checked the reviews and got a good vibe. After discussing Kearney with my siblings and children we went Kearney. I called Kearney and was connected to Matt Kaiser. He immediately offered his condolences and offered to help us make those last decisions for our brother. Little did we know what a wonderful connection Matt Kaiser would turn out to be. Kearney and Matt did an incredible job of making all the arrangements. Long distance removes the personal touch that you get form being there. At this difficult time, Matt represented our family and made us feel like we were there. Matt you went above and beyond to help us. We will not forget this. From the bottom of our hearts Don Corbett's family thanks you. As Newfoundlanders we offer you this "if you find yourself in the Province of Newfoundland at some time in the future, please let us know in advance as an arrangement will be made to have you made an honorary Newfoundlander". Thank you so much Matt. n October of 2020 our brother was admitted to the hospital in Vancouver and passed away a few days afterwards.

I would like to commend Samuel Li and Alicia for the amazing work they have done for us. Not only have they shown a great deal of professionalism through diligently following up all the little important details of the organization of the funeral, memorial and burial services, but a great deal of respect. We never felt compelled to pay for things we did not need. We wanted a simple but elegant service, and that was exactly what they did for us. They are real gems. Thank you for the beautiful way you have accompanied us in this moment of trial. Even though we were not of close acquaintances, we felt like we were treated as friends.

When your parent passes away your mind goes blank....you’re ready but you’re never ready. The moment I made the phone call in the middle of the night to Kearney‘s Funeral Home they calmly professionally took over - I just felt the pressure and stress just melt off my shoulders. The next morning Athena, the operations manager, contacted us and within a few days everything was planned and all we had to do was concentrate on our family and friends. I can’t stress enough how easy it was to let them take over, always respecting our wishes and left you feeling proud that you had done your best for your parent. Thank you Athena and your amazing staff. Lori & Annette When your parent passes away your mind goes blank....you’re ready but you’re never ready.

DO NOT DEAL WITH THIS COMPANY Had originally set up my 92 year old mother service with Kerneys funeral home. They sent me a price list and set up a meeting the price sheet showed for a basic cremation 1900.00 confirmed in the morning with them in the morning before my meeting and they said actually no the price is wrong. There is a charge for cremation and box to hold body. I said how much is that 1000.00 . I said that is false advertising and told them to go ho hell. 2900.00 and they straight out lied. When a person is in grief how can they do that. I called Amherst funeral and cremation services and talked with a lovely lady who told me to go on line and fill in info and call back. So i did and call them and they took care of everything. Received my mother back 7 days later. And that was on a Sunday. I will be filing a complaint against kerneys funeral home with the competitions bureau. Wow what amazing service and for the same service. Yes 890.00 Thanks for making my day a little better DO NOT DEAL WITH THIS COMPANY Had originally set up my 92 year old mother service with Kerneys funeral home.

Christina Koh had really did a great job in helping me to handle the difficult times when my uncle passed away a month ago. She is patient and kind to guide me through all the required documentations and procedures. Bearing in mind that I station overseas. She had helped me saving my time in staying in Vancouver. She is a reliable and trust worthy person. Her service is excellent! Thanks very much Christina!

I found Christina Koh to be a patient and caring individual who listen to what my mother's wishes were and then provided me with the required options to meet my mother's requirements. Under Christina's guidance the whole process was easy and painless, plus the she did an excellent job of explaining the rest of the process using the company supplied information package. Robert.

Christina Koh served my father in 2016 and she provided excellent service. I and my family were impressed with her attention detail, warm and caring spirit. When my mother passed way in March 2019, without a double, Kearney will be my choice to take care of my beloved mother. I want to thank her on behalf on my family for the another round of excellent service, caring and loving spirit. I highly recommend Christina Koh to any family who needed help in this difficult moment. Our church members were also very impressed with the services and dedication of Christina Koh.

We contacted Kearney for their services to deal with our close friend’s husband death. Christina Koh was an asset in ensuring our little details and scheduled dates were met. Her strong Mandarin & Cantonese skills were very helpful. Thank you for assisting us during this difficult time. We contacted Kearney for their services to deal with our close friend’s husband death.

Kearney provided the utmost care when a loved one passed away over the holidays. From my initial contact with Megan, to Athena, who handled all our arrangements, we had the best possible experience during a difficult and emotional time. We never felt like any products were pushed on us and Athena led us in all the options and decision making. Her care and attention to detail made everything go as seamlessly as possible and we were able to pay attention to the time shared with our loved ones and not have to worry about whether things were being taken care of. We completely trusted in Athena and Kearney to carry our wishes out, and we were not disappointed. It's quite overwhelming, planning the arrangements during a passing of a close relative and there are so many things to decide, but the best choice we could have made was choosing Kearney as our funeral home. I really can't echo our appreciation enough. Kearney provided the utmost care when a loved one passed away over the holidays.
