About Us

The funeral home was originally established in 1907 by Edward J. Downs.  After 3 generations of management, the ownership of the funeral home transferred to Brenda Scott in June, 2013 who continues to operate the facility with the tradition of compassion, honour and integrity established by the Downs family.

We at the Downs and Son Funeral Home are committed to providing the absolute best care we can for you, your family and your friends.  We strongly believe in the tradition of funeral services and the valuable part they play in grieving and healing.  We are also prepared to "think outside the box" to ensure the service is customized to your needs.  Whether that means a traditional funeral service, an open reception with a time for family and friends to share memories or a service held at the graveside or even your own backyard we will work with you and your family to customize the services you require.

Being a part of the community where we live is important to us.  Like you, we live here and work here and we care about our neighbours and our community.  So if you need us, you can take comfort in knowing we will be here.
