The history of Collins Clarke MacGillivray White Funeral Homes is really the combined history of three long-standing Montreal funeral parlours dating back to the 1800s that joined together in the 21st century.

D.A. Collins

The first D.A. Collins Funeral Home opened in the early 1920s, in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce. It quickly earned a reputation for quality service among the Anglo-Protestant community. In the early 1960s, it opened a second Montreal location, in Pointe-Claire, to serve families living in the West Island.

Clarke MacGillivray White

At the end of the 1930s, Clarke MacGillivray White Funeral Home opened on Monkland Street, serving mainly Catholic-Anglophone families. In the mid-1940s, it moved to Sherbrooke Street West.

In 1932, J.W. MacGillivray opened a funeral home in Saint-Lambert.

Robert M. White & Son opened in late-1940s on Pie-IX Boulevard. It later moved to Saint Catherine Street East.

Wray Walton & Wray

Founded in 1840, Jos C. Wray Undertakers predates all of the others mentioned here. Originally located at 290 de la Montagne St., the funeral home moved to 1234 de la Montagne St. in 1928. In 1970, Jos C. Wray merged with the William Wray Company to become Wray Walton & Wray. It also served mainly Anglo-Protestant families. In 1977, the company moved to Towers Street, in downtown Montreal.

The three funeral homes each grew and evolved throughout the decades.

Coming together

By 1982, Clarke MacGillivray White and D.A. Collins were each already part of a major funeral services network. It was then that they joined to become Collins Clarke MacGillivray White.

In 2001, Collins Clarke MacGillivray White absorbed Wray Walton & Wray, and the business became part of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers. Collins Clarke MacGillivray White Funeral Homes continues to serve the Anglo community of Greater Montreal, while welcoming more and more French families, as well as those from other ethnic communities.
