Sitting area at Anderson & Campbell Funeral HomeEstablished in 1869, Anderson & Campbell Funeral Home was started by Pitius Anderson, a local cabinet maker who also crafted caskets for the community. Eventually his son, Charles P. Anderson, took over the business, which continued to evolve as the funeral industry went through changes.

Growth and relocation

In the 1920s, Marvin S. Campbell began working for Charlie Anderson and eventually became a partner in the business. The funeral home was originally located in Toms River on Hooper Avenue, where the Ocean County Justice Complex now stands. It was moved in 1937 to its current location at 703 Main Street in Toms River. Before long, Marvin and his wife Mary became the sole proprietors. After World War II, Marvin's son-in-laws joined Marvin as directors and were an important part of the business.

In the early 1970s Marvin's son-in-law, Wallace "Gub" Polhemus, and his daughter, Patricia, took over the operation of the business. Soon after, they were joined by their sons, Wallace (Tim), John, Mark (Doug) and Richard (Rit), who continued to develop the business as it is known today.

The funeral home today

In 1997, Anderson & Campbell Funeral Home joined the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral homes. The Polhemus family continues to be an integral part of the day-to-day operation of the business.
