Reid's Funeral Home, Hampton NB
Shovels in the ground.
We are delighted to share the news that construction of the new Reid’s Funeral Home is underway. The construction crew is hard at work and we are looking forward to watching our brand new facility begin to rise in the coming weeks.
Our new home will be located at 1063 Main Street in Hampton, the very same location we have served you from since 1967.
While the loss of our building has been a challenging experience, it has given us the opportunity to custom design a new facility perfectly suited to our needs with priority given to the comfort and convenience of the families we serve.
The new Reid’s will be constructed entirely on one level and will offer a functional and flexible layout that will allow us to accommodate a variety of gatherings and events to suit everyone’s unique needs. Retractable walls will permit visitation or reception space to be combined with our Chapel to accommodate gatherings of up to 150 people when necessary. Our Chapel is configured to provide a beautiful view of the Kennebecasis River as a backdrop. The design also incorporates an efficient kitchen space to facilitate coffee service and reception catering.
While our construction schedule is still being finalized we anticipate that the new funeral home will be completed and in operation sometime in the fall of 2022.
As we have since fire destroyed the funeral home, we remain ready to serve the families of Hampton and surrounding communities should the need arise. While we await the completion of our new building, we have arranged temporary alternative spaces right here in Hampton to meet families and host visitations, services and receptions as required by those who rely on us. Should you require our services, please call 832-5541. We are here if you need us.
In closing, we want, once again, to thank our friends and neighbours, the Town and the greater community for your support and encouragement as we have dealt with this situation. We are looking forward to showing you our new home when it is ready.
