Established in 1919

Morley Bedford was born in Aurora just before the turn of the century.  He was the son of a Methodist minister.  He later married Mabel Crawford whose family founded Pickering, Ontario.  In 1919, Mr. Bedford began operations in Woodstock.  Five years later he purchased the house at 21 Dupont St. commencing his business operations in Toronto.

In June of 1934, Mr. Bedford purchased the site of his new funeral home at 159 Eglinton Avenue West and construction began shortly thereafter.  It was at its current location where Mr. Bedford established himself as one of the most respected funeral directors in the city of Toronto.

Robert Crawford, nephew of Morley Bedford and Vice-Chairman of Morley Bedford Ltd., was born in Brampton, Ontario and joined the firm in 1948.  He has also distinguished himself in the funeral profession through his appointment to serve on the Ontario Board of Funeral Services for a term from 1982-1986.  Mr. Crawford is now joined by his sons, Alan and Philip.  Alan, current president and managing director of the firm, studied at St. Andrew’s College and McGill University and also played professional hockey in the French National Hockey League.  Philip graduated from The University of Windsor and has also been very active in the Toronto church and athletic communities.

In 1994, the Morley Bedford Funeral Home experienced a significant facelift.  The funeral home is now able to serve everyone with its three newly expanded levels.  These visitation and post funeral reception areas are served by an elevator and provide a recreation room for children during visitation, reception or funeral hours.  The funeral home parking space has been augmented by a 300 car lot across the street in the new North Toronto Community Centre.  The centre boasts wonderful programs for youth and seniors and is a welcomed addition to our community.

Morley Bedford is truly a family operated business, yet is supported by some of the finest men and women in this profession; Troy Kedrosky, Cynthia Switzer and Jonathan Crawford, Robert’s grandson, are the current funeral directors who strive to continue the Bedford philosophy of listening and understanding that has, since 1919, won the respect of the people and community they serve.
