T A Brown Funeral Home
The history of our funeral home dates back to 1857, when a young Scottish immigrant carpenter named James Muir arrived in Port Elgin, on the eastern shore of Lake Huron. As the local carpenter, he was often asked to construct a casket for townspeople who had died. Gradually, he was asked to accommodate more of the tasks associated with the deaths of his neighbours, and became the town’s first “undertaker”. In August 2009, the funeral home was purchased by Taylor Brown. Taylor is originally from the Barrie area and is enjoying making Bruce County his home. Operation of this funeral home has thus been a continuous entity since 1857. We are intensely proud of our heritage, and vow to continue the fine compassionate work of our predecessors.
