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.

"Brent was very professional and respectful throughout the overall process, and was very responsive to any concerns and questions, both on the phone and via email. He explained every step! When we finalized the arrangements for my Mom, Brent took his time, and was patient and understanding with my elderly dad. Thanks to the caring staff!"
