Reception room at Markey-Dermody Funeral HomeAll of our services are designed to give families peace of mind at one of the most challenging times in their lives. Our staff knows just how to create your vision or bring your loved one's final wishes to reality. We offer everything from a traditional church funeral and cemetery burial to a modern celebration of life with live music, catering and a send-off that reflects the personality and passions of yourself or your loved one.

History

In 1971, William Markey bought 2 funeral homes in Hamilton from William Dermody. The P.X. Dermody funeral homes were located on East Avenue South and King Street East. When William Markey died in 1978, his wife, Mary, and son, Chris, continued to run both.

To better serve the Hamilton community, Mary and Chris built a new funeral home, and in 1987, the Markey-Dermody Funeral Home opened to families.

Our sincerest thanks to the entire staff for your kindness and compassion."

"Nothing is more devastating then losing a loved one, you can never prepare yourself for it, even when they are unwell or elderly and it is expected.... having someone walk you through the loss, from start to finish, guiding you gently, reassuring you in your choices, allowing you an emotional break while you remember your loved one lost, listening to you and truly hearing you all while carrying the load of making sure your loved one is cherished throughout the process is the kind of service I received at Markey Dermody Funeral Home. The genuine nature of the staff and their concern for making you both as comfortable and as at peace as possible with your loss was paramount with the high level of excellence in service that they provided. Thank you for making my family & I feel so well cared for during such a difficult time. Keep doing 'the amazing' that each of you delivered. Much appreciation and gratitude."
