History

Front exterior building at Fox & Murray Funeral Home and Cremation ServicesWhen our firm was originally established in 1913, it was operated under the basic principles of compassionate service to area families in their time of need.

The firm’s heritage brings nearly a century of continuous service in the Ogdensburg area, first as McGillis Undertaking Parlor, then McLellan Funeral Home under the ownership of the late Archibald McLellan, followed by Dennis “Ted” McLellan, who continued the operation of the funeral home for many years.

Generations of service

In 1955, the firm was renamed Fox-McLellan Funeral Home under the ownership of the late Charles T. and Dorothy E. Fox. They operated funeral homes in Heuvelton, Lisbon and Hammond, New York. Their son, Richard, joined the firm in 1967 and purchased the business in 1979.

Richard and his partner, Kenneth J. Cole, operated the firm until 1999 when funeral directors Richard and Sandra Fox retired. Mr. Cole retired on disability a short time later. David J. McLellan, the 3rd generation of the McLellan family, assumed the position of licensed manager at the firm.

The funeral home today

With the retirement of the McLellans in 2005, the funeral home’s name was changed to Fox & Murray Funeral Home and is now managed by Patti Murray and her husband, David.

Over the years, additional services were added to the business known today as Fox & Murray Funeral Home & Cremation Services. Today, we are proud to be a Dignity Memorial provider.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"Fox-Murray gets highest rating from me. They were there for me when I lost my father over a year ago, and then most recently, my mom. If I wanted something, all I had to do was ask. If I didn't want to deal with something...they took care of it. The staff knows when to be in the background, and when to step in and handle whatever may arise. Th

e death of one's beloved family members leaves one feeling exposed and vulnerable. The Fox-Murray staff seem to keep this in the forefront of every encounter, making sure to respect the grieving process while helping with the very real decision making that is required."
