History

Front exterior building at Hulse & English Funeral Home & ChapelAs one of Ontario's most traditional and beautifully appointed funeral establishments, Hulse & English Funeral Home & Chapel is a valued historic component of the St. Catharines community. We've had the honour of serving St. Catharines families for more than 150 years.

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

Chapel at Hulse & English Funeral Home & ChapelIn 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.
