Established in 1868, T. Little Funeral Home & Cremation Centre has served Cambridge area families during their time of need. A longstanding member of the community, we consider all of its residents our friends. Operated from a charming Victorian-style house at 223 Main St. in Cambridge since 1986, from comfortable visitation rooms to a modern chapel, from easy parking to full-service catering, we can handle your every funeral need.
Today, T. Little Funeral Home & Cremation Centre is a member of the Dignity Memorial® network. As such, we give you not only the warm, familiar attention you expect from a locally operated funeral home—one that has served Cambridge for well over a century—but also the value you deserve via the largest funeral provider network in North America.

Coutts Funeral Home & Cremation Centre

Our story begins in 1937, when Harrold W. Gray established Gray Funeral Home in a historical stone home in Galt at 96 Saint Andrews Street. Times have changed—and so did the name, when Wilfred R. Coutts Sr. bought Gray Funeral Home in 1947—but our commitment to compassionate care has never wavered.

Coutts Funeral Home & Cremation Centre #4The house was built between 1852 and 1854 and was the residence of local lawyer Aemilus Irving and his family. By 1872, the property had changed hands to Adam Warnock, founder of Galt Knitting Company, which later became Tiger Brand Knitting Company. In 1947, Wilfred R. Coutts Sr. bought Gray Funeral Home from Harrold and changed the name to Coutts Funeral Home.

With 80 years of providing funerals and memorials, cremations and cemetery services to Cambridge area families, we are a trusted pillar of the community. As times have changed, so have our funeral options. Today we offer everything from a traditional church or chapel funeral with cemetery burial or cremation to 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.

Barthel Funeral Home

Community leader John Grieve, a blacksmith and undertaker who manufactured coffins, established John Grieve Funeral Home in 1856. Through the years, the funeral home exchanged hands several times and saw several name changes. In 1990, owner Robert Barthel sold the firm to his son John, who renamed it Barthel Funeral Home.
The funeral home’s current location, at the corner of Queenston Road and Argyle Street, in Preston, was built in 1938 by Harry and Mary Stager. The couple lived in an upstairs apartment, as did the Barthel family years later. SEE LESS

As the business grew, so did Barthel Funeral Home itself. Space was added in 1972 to accommodate a larger arrangement office, new foyer and third visitation room. In 1984, a new showroom and storage area were added, and the funeral home's lower level was converted into a lounge and washroom facilities. In 1995, the Barthel family moved out of the upstairs apartment, and that space became offices and a place for grief counseling.
Just as the actual space evolved, so did our services. Today, as a member of the Dignity Memorial® network, Barthel 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, burial, cremation and cemetery service providers in North America.
