Managing Funeral Director – Stoney Creek Chapel

We are searching for those who want to share in our passion for serving families during one of life's most difficult moments.

We are a family-owned funeral home, and have been dedicated to providing exceptional, compassionate and personalized service to families since 1938. We are seeking a fulltime Licensed Funeral Director to assume the role of Manager at our Stoney Creek location and join our team as a leader and team-player.

Ethics, professionalism and service to others are our guiding principles. We have no commissioned staff members, and we treat all families equally, with kindness, patience and compassion.

We are family-owned and supporting our people is of utmost importance to us, which is why we are committed to providing our valued team members with guidance, an opportunity for personal and professional growth, and working to help them achieve a work life balance. We offer a competitive salary, benefits and pension program, professional uniform, smart phone and dry-cleaning allowance. Salary will be based on the experience and skills of the successful candidate.
