History

Ezekiel Marlatt and his son, James Charles Marlatt, opened Marlatt Funeral Home in Grimsby around 1865. James’s son, James Bertram, moved the business from Grimsby to Hamilton in 1919. He soon partnered with the firm of A.H. Dodsworth, and the funeral home became known as Dodsworth, Marlatt & Brown.

When James Bertram left Dodsworth, Marlatt & Brown he opened another funeral home, which he called J.B. Marlatt Funeral Home, at our current location, 615 Main St. E. Two months later, he passed away suddenly. James’s son, James Donald (J.D.) Marlatt, took over the business.

In 1959, J.D. bought a second funeral home, Mitson Funeral Home in Dundas, and operated it as Mitson-Marlatt Funeral Home. J.D. pass away in 1973, and his son, Scott Marlatt, operated both funeral homes until selling them in 1985 to the Loewen Group. In 2006, Marlatt Funeral Home & Cremation Centre became part of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers.
