The funeral home was founded by Mr. John Anderson in 1859. John Anderson Furniture and Funeral Supply located on Kent Street West in Lindsay, provided a selection of quality furniture and funeral services. James S.

Recognizing the value of a funeral service, James built the only Funeral Chapel in the Town of Lindsay.
