About

Known as T.W. Curry Funeral Home in its earliest days, T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel bears the name of the man who founded the business in 1923. Today, our funeral home is run by compassionate and professional funeral experts who serve the people of Sydney in their times of need. Our team is experienced at helping guide families through the entire funeral process with a human touch. 

Lasting legacy

For more than 90 years, the Curry family and their funeral homes have served Sydney and the Cape Breton community with the highest level of personal service, providing funeral, memorial and cremation services to families at an emotionally challenging time of life. Through the years, our funeral offerings have evolved to the changing needs of our community, but T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel’s commitment to honesty and trust remains steady.

Memorials that are memorable

What does that mean exactly? It means that at T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel, we work with each individual to create a lasting memorial—whether wholly traditional to completely contemporary—as unique as the loved one it honours. Whether you are seeking a basic cremation, a full funeral service or a modern celebration of life, we go the extra mile to make it happen. This is something we do with a level of care and compassion that's uncommon in this world.

Please contact us if you need help right away or simply want additional information about our funeral and cremation services.

History

In September 1923, Thomas W. Curry founded T.W. Curry Funeral Home, then located at 390 George Street in Sydney. Thomas apprenticed with his father, William Curry, at Glace Bay. In 1966, when "T.W.," as he was familiarly known, retired, he sold his business to his son, Leo J. Curry.

Leo, a St. Francis Xavier University graduate like his father, considered medical school but decided instead to work at the family business. That same year, Leo bought former Sen. William MacDonald's property at 755 George St., which is still the location of T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel to this day.

Generations of service

Leo and his wife, Anne, have 7 children. Their eldest son, W.G. "Bill" Curry, represents the 4th generation of the Curry family to hold a funeral directors license. He and the T.W. Curry Staff maintain the tradition of serving families in the Sydney area with a commitment to innovation and personal attention. That means we go the extra mile to fulfill your wishes (or those of your loved one) for everything from a traditional church funeral to a modern celebration of life—complete with live music, catering and a send-off reflective of the personality and passions of a lifetime.

T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel is a member of the Dignity Memorial® network, allowing us to give you the warm, familiar attention you expect from a locally operated funeral home with the security you deserve from the largest network of funeral, burial, cremation and cemetery service providers in North America.

"From beginning to end, the staff at TW Curry's treated us with dignity and professionalism. During our initial consultation, they took the time to discuss all services and options available. The staff gave us ample opportunity to make decisions regarding the details and choices for the entire funeral process for our Mother. They were very kind, compassionate and accommodating. TW Curry's made the whole process less stressful because they were there for us every step of the way. We were very grateful for their guidance and support."

"The professionalism, caring and compassion shown to our family was second to none. The staff we dealt with as a family was very informative, and every little detail was carried out, right down to the family flowers that were ordered. We couldn't have done better ourselves. You felt very comfortable with the staff, through your grieving process"
