History

In 1935, Charles Mitson purchased the Albert J. Brown Funeral Home, located at 171 King Street W., and began building a new funeral home at the present location, just a few doors down, at 195 King Street W. In December of 1959, Charles sold his funeral home to James Donald (J.D.) Marlatt, who owned the J.B. Marlatt Funeral Home in Hamilton. The Mitson-Marlatt Funeral Home, as it became known, was renamed J.B. Marlatt Funeral Home when Charles died in August 1970.

Entrance at Marlatt Funeral Home & Cremation CentreScott Marlatt assumed ownership of both funeral homes after his father, J.D., died in 1973. In 1985, Scott sold the Dundas and Hamilton funeral homes, and in 2006, both Marlatt funeral homes became part of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers. Our name changed to Marlatt Funeral Home & Cremation Centre, Swackhamer Chapel when we absorbed the Swackhamer Blanchford & Wray Funeral Home in Hamilton in 2009.

"The level of care was as much as anyone could hope for. Everything was taken care of and well organized. Dignity was given to all before, during and after the service. The entire staff 'cared' about the loss the deceased meant to others."
