The Story of Our Funeral Homes
In the 1930s and 40s, J. Goodyear & Sons operated a funeral business as a small part of their larger construction company. Grand Falls Funeral Home was incorporated on January 22 1965 to stand on its own. In the late 1960s, a location in Gander was added, thus changing the name to "Central Funeral Homes”. In 1977, Terry Goodyear further separated the funeral home by selling off his interest in J. Goodyear & Sons and keeping the funeral home business. In 1978, a location in Springdale was added. In 2000, Michael & Sheila Goodyear took over the reins and helped move the business into the 21st century. In 2010 they opened the Bishop's Falls location.
Since our founding, the guiding principle of Central Funeral and Cremation Services has been the commitment to treating each family who comes to us as our own. With sincerity, pride, and dedication, we are committed to this time-honoured tradition.
In recent years, we’ve gathered together a staff of highly-qualified and deeply caring individuals to assist us in continuing the funeral home’s mission of providing excellence in funeral services to families in their time of need.
Whether you have an immediate need for our services or you wish to begin pre-planning a funeral arrangement for you or someone you love, call us. We will be proud to serve you.
