Five Rivers Crematorium is a public facility owned by the City of Williams Lake. It was built by the Central Interior Cremation Society with funds generously donated by the industry, unions, and the public. The crematorium is managed and operated under contract by Cariboo-Chilcotin Funeral Services. David Wilson, The Crematorium Operations Manager and a licensed funeral director, has been the main cremation operator at Five Rivers since it opened in 2002.
As part of our commitment to the environment and community, we have continued to support Forests for tomorrow by donating funds for the planting of ten trees in the Cariboo-Chilcotin for every cremation.
Forests For Tomorrow is a provincial government program set up to help fund replanting fire damaged and beetle killed forests in B.C that otherwise would not be re-forested.
