      ________________________

      Funerals usually took place from the home of the deceased or of a family member or friend. Occasionally they took place from a train station when the body was sent from a distant site. The first indication of a professional funeral in this collection is that of George Oliver who was buried from Grove's Undertaking Establishment on Main St., Galt in 1898. Funeral Parlor funerals apparently didn't become common until the late 1930's.
