Who We Are and What We Do

Proudly serving Kingston and the surrounding area since 1901,  Robert J. Reid & Sons Funeral Home will help you customize your arrangements, while respecting your faith, taste and budget. You can feel confident putting your trust in our compassionate professionals.

At the turn of the 20th century, Robert J. Reid established a furniture and funeral business under the same roof at 230 Princess Street. In 1953 the Funeral Home was relocated to current site at the corner of Johnson and Barrie Streets. 

 We are proud to be a part of this community. Our helpful, dedicated staff are passionate about supporting families, local associations, religious organizations and cultural groups, and we are honoured to host a series of free memorial events throughout the year.
