About Us

Focused on Your Needs

Who We Are and What We Do

Proudly serving Dartmouth and the surrounding area since 1954,  Dartmouth Memorial Gardens & Atlantic Funeral Home will help you customize your arrangements, while respecting your faith, taste and budget. You can feel confident putting your trust in our compassionate professionals.

With over 50 acres of natural landscape and 35 acres of beautifully manicured gardens, and soothing water fountains throughout, the Atlantic Ocean provides a magnificent backdrop on one side while the other over looks sparkling Lake Loon. It provides  a peaceful atmosphere for loved ones to gather and reminisce.  Our Funeral Home, built in 1997, adds the convenience of making all your arrangements at one location.

We are proud to be a part of this community. Our helpful, dedicated staff are passionate about supporting families, local associations, religious organizations and cultural groups, and we are honoured to host a series of free memorial events throughout the year.
