History

Chapel at Thompson Funeral HomeThompson Funeral Home has been an integral part of the Aurora community for more than 90 years. The Thompson family began providing funeral services to Aurora and neighbouring communities in 1921, when P.M. Thompson first opened Thompson Funeral Home.

Since that time, the business has transferred ownership through 2 more generations of Thompsons.

In 1998, the Thompson family decided to join the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers, knowing that when someone chooses a Dignity Memorial provider, they get not only the compassionate care expected from a local business, but also the value they deserve from the largest network of funeral, cremation and memorialization services in North America.

"Thompson's gives wonderful service. They were caring and compassionate towards us during a very sad, very emotional time. We felt that they listened to us and didn't rush us through decisions. Amy was very professional and helpful. We met with Deborah afterward and she walked us through things that we would have overlooked on our own. Thank yo

u both for all your help."
