Serving the communities of Watertown, Belmont and Cambridge for more than 90 years
Stanton Funeral Service has been a family-owned entity since 1919, when it started as a storefront funeral home to service the Watertown community. John J. Stanton was a lifelong resident of the Belmont area. His son, William, and grandson, Richard, are also lifelong residents of the community.
William G. Stanton, who passed away in 2007, joined his father in the business in 1947, upon his return from Navy service following World War II. William moved the Stanton facility five blocks down the road, maintaining the first and oldest funeral home in the area. He has been followed most recently, in the family tradition, by his son Richard J. Stanton, representing the third generation of the Stanton family.
Richard attended Merrimack College and New England Institute of Applied Arts and Sciences. For three generations the Stanton family has been dedicated to providing professional service to those in need.
