He was then joined by his son Murdo and they continued producing furniture and coffins as well as undertaking funerals from their premises in Academy Street, Inverness, before moving to George Street, Inverness. Several pieces of their furniture can still be seen in our directors homes today.
By the time the third generation joined the family business, the focus was on funeral directing and brothers James and David Chisholm developed the funeral business by offering improved facilities and vehicles.
Our first fleet consisted of a Humber hearse and limousine and bore the old Inverness ST registration plates.
In 1978, we acquired the former Queen Street Church on the west bank of the River Ness, where we still conduct from today. After extensive renovations, this landmark building became our funeral home in 1986 under the guidance of the fourth generation, George M. Chisholm.
