Family History

Our History

The Markey family has been serving families in our community since the 1940’s and has maintained their commitment to a “personal, caring touch with exceptional customer service.” The founder William (Bill) understood the importance of celebrating and creating a tribute to life.

With four locations, we provide one solution for all of your funeral needs.

Serving Hamilton and Burlington, Bay Gardens Funeral Home offers elegant, contemporary locations designed with tall ceilings, lots of natural light and open spaces reminiscent of local waterfalls found throughout the community.

Bayview Crematorium, Cemetery and Mausoleum, located in Burlington, is rich in history with art-deco architecture which has been part of the Aldershot community for generations. Monuments are conveniently located on Botanical Drive where you can personalize a message in lasting memory.

Today, families of all ages, religions, and ethnicities invite their families to celebrations of life where they find the same values and attention to detail that has been part of our history for over 70 years.





Our Team

In keeping with the Markey family’s commitment to excellent service, our dedicated, professional, and multilingual team supports the community through compassion and caring with every funeral arrangement.

Our licensed professionals will explain your options in all aspects of funeral service. We include Family Funeral Estate Planning, Bereavement and Aftercare services. Our licensed Pre-Planning Advisors will also assist with ensuring that you record your wishes for your celebration of life.
