Furniture and undertaking
Our funeral home was founded on December 12, 1834, by Thomas McIntyre, a young Scottish-born furniture maker. Within a few years, the company branched into undertaking with Thomas McIntyre's son, John, forming a partnership in the 1870s. Eventually, undertaking became the sole interest of the firm.
Growing the business
The McIntyre family ownership ended in 1928, when Percy Hulse purchased the business, and moved it to its present location at 75 Church Street in the former St. Paul Street United Church manse. Adoption of our present name, Hulse & English Funeral Home & Chapel, occurred in 1936 with the admission of William English to the partnership.
Chapels and amenities
In 1941, a spacious English Gothic chapel was added, including a custom-designed Casavant pipe organ. Ian Russell became a partner of William English in 1973 and acquired sole ownership of Hulse & English Funeral Home & Chapel 5 years later. Under Ian Russell’s ownership, adjacent properties were purchased for parking facilities and an addition to the funeral home was completed to accommodate the growing business.
Today, we employ more than a dozen employees, who are involved in and conscientiously serve the community of St. Catharines.
