Park Lawn Corp. announced in a July 17 news release that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Ward Funeral Home Limited.
The Ward acquisition expands Park Lawn’s footprint in the Greater Toronto Area through the addition of three stand-alone funeral homes located in Brampton, Woodbridge and Toronto, Ontario.
“For over 100 years and four generations, our family has been serving the communities of the Greater Toronto Area with care and integrity in honoring the memories of their loved ones. We are excited to join an organization that aligns with our values and prioritizes the service of families above all else,” said William John Ward and Cameron Ward, former owners of Ward.
“We are pleased to further deepen our funeral home presence in the Greater Toronto market with the addition of the Ward businesses,” said J. Bradley Green, chief executive officer of PLC. He continued, “These well-established best-in-class businesses are led by a robust leadership team which exemplify the high level of service present in first rate funeral homes. We are honored to welcome the Ward businesses and their team into the Park Lawn family.”
