Over more than 84 years of service, McFarlane & Roberts has earned a reputation for quality, caring, attentive service. Located on Wharncliffe Road in Lambeth, Ontario the firm has served families of that community as well as those from London and St. Thomas for generations.

Michael J. Stevenson, McFarlane & Roberts' owner/manager and a St. Thomas native, has been the firm's Managing Director since 1990. Mike has always taken a great deal of pride in the personal service and community focus at McFarlane & Roberts and therefore eagerly welcomed the opportunity to purchase the business when it became available in 2006.

"Owning my own business had been a goal of mine for some time and to achieve it here where I've spent most of my career and built so many valued relationships is truly satisfying," says Mike. "I'm very proud to have made McFarlane & Roberts a locally-owned business once again and I'm grateful to the community who gave me the confidence to take this step and have supported us since then."

With the retirement of longtime funeral director Murray Adlam, everyone at McFarlane & Roberts was pleased to welcome director Ed Theo to the staff. A Funeral Service Education graduate of Humber College in 1997, Ed arrived with first class skills and a well-rounded perspective.

"Murray was such a significant part of McFarlane & Roberts he will definitely be missed," says Mike, "but we've been very fortunate to have found another funeral director. Ed's talent and commitment have made him an asset to our team from the beginning."

A team of experienced, part-time support staff make up the rest of McFarlane & Roberts staff.
