Family owned & operated, with over a century of service to the bereaved.
Heritage Gardens is Metro Vancouver’s newest cemetery, and the first cemetery to open in over 50 years.
Founders Tom and Trevor Crean represent two of four generations of a family legacy of serving the bereaved. Tom’s grandfather established Kearney Funeral Services in 1908, a family business which carries on to this day.
Due to the close relationship between funeral homes and cemeteries, Tom & Trevor became familiar with cemetery operations over their combined five decades in funeral service.
Ever a forward thinker, Tom anticipated the future shortage of burial space as early as 1985, and the resulting spike in cemetery costs. Tom became committed to creating a new kind of cemetery; one that is affordable, environmentally sustainable, and transparent.
Heritage Gardens allows families to choose between burial and cremation according to their wishes and their beliefs, rather than their financial means.
