Unique celebrations of life
Whether you are seeking a basic cremation with cremated remains scattered in a personally meaningful place, a traditional church funeral with a cemetery burial or a modern celebration of life with live music, catering and a send-off that reflects the uniqueness of yourself or your loved one, we make it happen—and we do it with care and compassion. From hockey pucks to cupcakes, superheroes to snow angels, we take the things that mattered to someone and bring them together to create a singular, heartfelt memorial.

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.
We cherish the community we serve and invite you to join us for our upcoming events.
