Logan Funeral Home, Since 1892
London's Longest Serving Funeral Home
Over A Century of Professional Service
In 1892, George E. Logan founded the funeral home to fulfill a needed service for the London Community; based on the highest ideals of his profession.
George E. Logan came from Thorndale to begin what is today, London's longest serving funeral home.The George E. Logan Funeral Home was located on Dundas Street, beside what is known today as Kingsmill's (within a block of the courthouse). At that time horses were extensively used in the funeral profession, and families were beginning to use the facilities of a Funeral Home, rather than their residences.
Because the stable was attached to the Funeral Home, it was decided a new location would be more desirable, and the firm was moved to the East Side of Richmond Street, just north of Dundas Street.
With the increasing demand for still larger facilities, the property at our present location was purchased in 1920. Early in 1922, one of the few buildings in Ontario that had been built purposely for a Funeral Home was opened, along with the local ambulance service. The Logan Family made their residence on the second floor of the funeral home for many years as did the Logan's Ambulance Attendants.
The new Funeral Home included a permanent Chapel that provides the family with reverence and dignity at all times. Large and small gatherings can be accommodated with equal ease and
grace, in a church like atmosphere. A separate room for the family is provided for those wishing privacy.
In 1935 George E. Logan passed away and was buried in Woodland Cemetery. George's two sons, Harold G Logan and A. Everett Logan, carried the business on under the high ideals set down by their father; until 1962 when Harold died And the business was sold. George's daughter
Ivy continued to play the organ at the funeral home for many years after the funeral home was sold.
