WELCOME TO DRAKE’S.
My name is Drake Smith, that’s my picture above.
Most people come to us because they need cremation services in Kamloops. My team and I try to make things as clear and comfortable as we can. We start by showing you the exact price for cremation services in Kamloops and the area. You’ll see this by clicking the ‘PRICES’ tab on the menu bar above my photo.*
Some people want us to organize a Celebration of Life service and some people prefer to do this themselves. We’ve written a free little booklet called “Drake’s Guide to the Last Goodbye: how to hold a celebration of life”. You can download a copy on this website or pick one up at any of our four locations. You’ll also notice that we provide funeral services in Kamloops and the North Thompson area. Although most people are choosing cremation and not opting for funeral services in Kamloops and the area these days, if this is your choice we’ll help you in any way that we can.
We also believe in making this time as comfortable for you as we can. We don’t wear black suits and we don’t try to sell you things. Our funeral homes are comfortable; we have sofas not board room tables. Our goal is simple: for you to feel better when you leave our place than you did when you arrived.
If you’re checking into pre-planning for yourself or someone in your life please consider clicking on Drake’s Easy as 1-2-3 Planning Sheet. There’s no charge, and it will take you about 5 minutes to answer the questions about yourself. It will probably save a lot of stress for those you love. In most cases I would advise you NOT to pre-pay for cremation services in Kamloops. Please call and we’ll tell you why. But the 1-2-3 Planning Sheet is an extremely useful tool.
Thanks for visiting our website. If you have any questions or if we can be of any help please feel free to call us directly at (250) 377-8225.
*Please note: there is no mileage charge for cremation services in Kamloops, but mileage charges do apply outside of the Kamloops area. The price list also does not include obituaries, extra death certificates (we provide one original death certificate as shown in the price list). The price list includes the cremation container (i.e. casket) and taxes. You’ll also notice that we give a wood urn away. No one goes home in a cardboard box.
