History of Blake-Doyle Funeral Home
Blake-Doyle Funeral Home was founded in 1886 in Camden, New Jersey as the Blake Funeral Home. In 1955, Robert J. Blake, grandson of the original founder, George Blake, brought the funeral home to Collingswood. James F. Doyle, who had been an employee at the Blake Funeral Home since 1959, purchased the funeral home from Mr. Blake in 1984. At this time, the name was changed to Blake-Doyle Funeral Home. In January of 1999, the Blake-Doyle Funeral Home became affiliated with the Dignity Memorial® network, North America’s largest provider of funeral, cremation and cemetery services.
