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.

"Fantastic staff!! Special thank you to Kyle for his endearing personality. He made me smile and even has me thinking about making arrangements for myself in the New Year. I have zero tolerance for pressure so I really appreciate no one calling me yet. I know I can count on Kyle to call me and not to soon. He knows people have different needs and addressed me as an individual."

"I can honestly say, that the entire process I felt supported by Bryce, Jennifer and Kyle and the entire team at the funeral home. Jennifer ensured all my wishes where shared, through the entire process she made it seamless and was ready to accomodate any wish the family may have. She was so caring and compassionate and honeslty just so easy to work with. Bryce made sure we stayed on top of everything and ensure all needs where being meet as well. Kyle supported our family through the entire funeral process and as well helping my family to complete paperwork and even offering to be a pallbearer. No one needed to do that but they were just ready to help whenever I may need. Honestly, you guys truely an A+ staff team, you don't find very often, I am truely gratiful for each and every one of you."
