Inverness Funeral Home has provided funerals and cremations to the people of Inverness, Mabou, Margaree, Port Hood, Judique and the Western Cape Breton area for decades. Service options have evolved in our nearly 50 years in business, but our commitment to high standards remains unchanged.

Service tailored to you

Whether you are seeking a basic cremation with cremated remains scattered in a personally meaningful place, a full traditional funeral service with a cemetery burial or 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, we go the extra mile to make it happen—and we do it with a level of care and compassion that's uncommon in this world.

Trusted provider

As a member of the Dignity Memorial® network, Inverness Funeral Home gives you not only the warm, familiar attention you expect from a locally operated funeral home but also the value you deserve by way of the largest network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers in North America.

We invite you to call us for immediate assistance or to learn more about planning ahead. If you are a police officer, firefighter or EMT, ask about our public servants program.


Founded in 1969, Inverness Funeral Home (formerly Rod MacDonald Funeral Home) is the oldest funeral home in the Western Cape Breton area. Nearly 50 years ago, Rod A. MacDonald opened the funeral home—the first of its kind in Inverness—in the former Canada Post building. He relocated his namesake business to the MacMillan homestead on MacIsaac Street in the early 1970s; soon after, he moved it again to its present location at 45 MacIssac St., the former site of the Holy Family Convent High School.

Bernie MacDougall began working with Ron in 1975. Together they ran Rod MacDonald Funeral Home until February 1982, when Sydney funeral director Leo J. Curry—who owned T.W. Curry Funeral Home in Sydney—purchased the business and renamed it Inverness Funeral Home.

"The care and compassion that I received from Tonya went above the call of duty. She felt like family from the first minute we met. Having her come to my house to make the arrangements was so much easier on me and I am so grateful for the time she spent with me and my family. Your kindness, and Kevin's, will never be forgotten"
