Our Beginnings

Agnes B. & Wm F. Chambers, Sr. founded Chambers Funeral Home in 1933. The first location was located at W. 85th and Madison Ave. in Cleveland, Ohio. Four years later, in 1937, they purchased a home at 4420 Rocky River Drive in Cleveland and moved a young family and business to what currently is our main location in Cleveland's West Park neighborhood.

Wm. F. Chambers, Sr passed away unexpectedly in 1950 at the age of 45 yrs. Agnes Chambers assumed the leadership of the business, and with the encouragement of her sons, decided to remain open until they were old enough to take over the reins.

With great enthusiasm they did and the company grew. In 1955 Wm. F. Chambers, Jr. and 1959 Daniel B. Chambers, Sr. received their funeral directors license.

In 1974 a second location in Berea, Ohio was opened. The former Fox Funeral Home was purchased adjacent to St. Adalbert Catholic Church.

In 2003, a third location in North Olmsted, Ohio, was opened. It is located on Lorain Rd. at Stearns Rd.,the new North-South connector between I-90 and I-480. Thus making us a convenient location for all Westside families.

Many changes have occured over the years, and the third generation of Chambers are committed to following the lead and example of our parents and grandparents. It is our goal to provide memorable and meaningful funerals to each family.
