White Chapel Memorial Gardens is situated on the former property of pioneer Harcar Lyons. The property was purchased in 1927 by Herbert G Binet, owner of L.G. Wallace Funeral Home, for use as a private cemetery. It was originally known as Westmount Memorial Park Cemetery and was part of the early 20th century's memorial park movement.

It was first used in 1929 for the burial of Ellen Jackson. Due to labor shortage during the war years, there was very little development on the property, although burials took place. In 1949 the cemetery was sold to Memorial Gardens of Canada, a for-profit cemetery corporation.

The cemetery is now home to approximately 16000 burials. All markers are required to be flat with bronze or brass plates.

One section of the cemetery, Temple Garden, is of historical interest because the columns in the garden were rescued from the 1860 Wentworth County Court House.

The cemetery does not allow photography to take place on their grounds.
