History

In 1985, James Hahn opened Westmount Funeral Chapel on the corner of Ottawa Street and Westmount Road in Kitchener. In 2014, a renovation and expansion of Westmount Funeral Chapel was completed, and Schreiter-Sandrock Funeral Home & Chapel merged with Westmount. That's when the name was changed to Westmount Memorial Celebration Centre. Our sister chapel, Ratz-Bechtel Funeral Home & Cremation Centre, merged with Westmount Memorial Celebration Centre in 2015.

James began with a commitment to a high standard of service, and throughout our history we have provided thoughtful leadership and innovation while maintaining that same high standard. Everyone at our funeral home is proud to uphold that heritage, along with our commitment to the community. As a Dignity Memorial® provider, Westmount Memorial Celebration Centre is a member of the largest network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers in North America.

"My initial meeting was with Jane Alexander to which she immediately put me at ease with her compassion, genuine interest in our lives, immediately she knew what type and best options for the service would be best simply through listening to my general description, she supported and advised me throughout the process and continued to be genuinely con

cerned for my well being. I was grateful to have her and the rest of the team support me throughout. They all provided a stress free experience as much is possible at a time like this. Brianne delivered the service and was absolutely wonderful, she captured the essence of my wife perfectly. Every single person commented to me on how wonderful she was. The facility was perfectly sized and very comfortable and suitable, with many people commenting on this. I would like to thank everyone at Dignity Memorial for making the most trying time in ones life as amiable an experience as possible."
