Owned and operated by Graham and Janet Giddy since 1981, this historic Fergus funeral home dates its origin to the village of Belwood (Douglas) in the mid 1800’s as the undertaking business of Mr. Onslow Jupp. It is unclear how long Mr. Jupp had served the thriving community of Belwood prior to the arrival of the Credit Valley Railroad in the mid 1870's. The business exchanged hands from Mr. Jupp to Mr. Elum Hanna sometime between then and 1912 when the business passed hands again to a Mr. Joe Johnston.

In the spring of 1924 Mr. Johnston moved the business and his large family to Fergus. Johnston and his wife Nellie Vallery along with sons, Gordon and Don ran the family business until 1947, when it was sold to Mr. Lorne Pattison.  Changing hands once more to Mr. Larry Parker, Graham and Janet Giddy purchased the funeral home in 1981 and have operated it to present day.

Fergus Chapel: A welcome addition since 1981, this non-denominational chapel accommodates 160 people for a funeral service as an option for those who do not wish a formal church setting. The chapel provides a dignified setting for family, friends and the community to gather together and pay tribute to the deceased.  

Reception Room : A private reception room is a comfortable and warm setting for post-funeral gatherings and can accommodate up to 100 people.

Visitation Suites: Our tastefully decorated Visitation Suites offer an appropriate setting for small or larger tributes.

Owned and operated by Graham and Janet Giddy since 1981, The Graham A. Giddy Funeral Home in Elora dates back to 1862 with the home founders Mr. & Mrs. Charles Fischer. Moving from Preston to the Elora area in 1862, the Fischer’s started C. Fischer and Sons furniture store and a funeral business. After the death of the founder in 1919, son Frank as funeral director, his older brother and nephew changed the name to simply Fischer Brothers.  

On December 1st, 1948, the funeral business was sold to Mr. Charles Sturrock and his wife Dorothy Badley who built a new funeral home on Geddes Street the year after.  

The business continued in the hands of the Sturrock’s until March of 1980 when it was sold to Mr. Larry Parker who also operated the Towriss Funeral Home under the direction of Mr. Ken Towriss. The Towriss Funeral Home operated on the corner of Geddes and Church Street until Ken’s death in 1970.
