Who We Are and What We Do

Proudly serving Hamilton and the surrounding area,  White Chapel Memorial Gardens will help you customize your arrangements, while respecting your faith, taste and budget. You can feel confident putting your trust in our compassionate professionals.

Set against the magnificent backdrop of the Niagara Escarpment, our 63 acres of manicured gardens, mature trees and a spring-fed pond provides a peaceful atmosphere for loved ones to gather and reminisce.

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.

White Chapel Memorial Gardens is pleased to support City Kidz. It is a great program to assist children living in Hamilton's most challenged neighbourhoods.
