Our Chapel

Jenkins Funeral Chapel

The Jenkins Funeral Chapel has been an active participant in the West Shore communities for over 75 years. Serving surrounding cities Westlake, North Olmsted, Bay Village, Rocky River, Fairview Park, Avon, Avon Lake, North Ridgeville, Olmsted Township and many others. Our location on Dover Center Road, originally built in 1875, was one of the area's first schoolhouses. It was first remodeled into a funeral home in 1915 to serve your grandparents' families.  We operated one of the first local ambulance services --long before emergency services were available in many localities. Unlike other funeral homes that are part of big, multinational organizations, Jenkins Funeral Chapel is fourth generation family owned and operated.  Jenkins is more than just a business member of the community, we live here, our children go to school here and we share your concerns and interests in the day to day events that shape our community.  [ read more ]

Our Resources

Jenkins Funeral Resources

Today, as Westlake's first and most recognized family-owned and operated funeral home and crematory, we pledge to continue to provide the same caring, personal attention to your families' individual needs, as we always have. We offer integrity, quality, teamwork, honesty, good freindships, trust, Christian living, plain talk, dignity respect, and perhaps most importantly, local experience. Ask us how we can save the family of every Veteran over $5000.00 when selecting a National Cemetery rather than a privately owned cemetery.  Jenkins Funeral Chapel, along with Keith A. Jenkins, Andrew J. Jenkins and Jim Gilmore will continue to be here when you need us. [ read more ]
