About Us

Westview opened in March 1997 and is owned and operated by Paul Needham. Westview is designed specifically for the provision of funeral services and related functions including receptions. Its design is meant to ensure privacy to each family during every phase of their time at the funeral home. This includes arrangement consultation, visitation, funeral service and reception. Our facility is intended to be warm, open, airy and positive. As a proudly independent Canadian business we are just as proud to support our countrymen by purchasing over 90% of our products from Canadian manufacturers.


At present, we employ eleven licensed funeral directors, with a combined total of more than 100 years of experience, along with a support staff of twelve.

Paul NeedhamPaul Needham is the 3rd generation in his family to provide funeral service to Londoners. His grandparents Russel and Louise Needham established the original Needham Funeral Home in 1932.

In addition to providing all aspects of funeral services, Westview offers accredited bereavement counseling and after-care to assist families in dealing with issues that arise after a funeral has taken place. This may involve help in completing pension and insurance applications or provision of bereavement counseling.
