In January of 1979, Doug McBurney and Doug Layton purchased R.A. Currie Funeral Home from John & Ruth Currie, which was located on Josephine Street across from the Post Office. R.A. Currie Funeral Home was previously owned by Sam Gracey who bought in 1879 and then purchased by Robert A. Currie in 1913.
In April of that same year, Doug McBurney and Doug Layton then purchased S.J. Walker Funeral Home, located on the corner of Patrick & Edward Streets from Jack and Edith Walker.
Following the purchase of both funeral homes in Wingham, the R.A. Currie building was closed and expanded to the S.J. Walker Building in December of 1979. From 1979-1984 they operated under Currie-Walker Funeral Home which was later changed to McBurney Funeral Home, a division of Layton-McBurney Limited.
Upon the retirement of Doug Layton in 1998, Doug & Jackie McBurney purchased his shares of Layton-McBurney Limited.
After 45 years in the funeral business, Doug and Jackie McBurney retired in August of 2016 and shares of McBurney Funeral Home Ltd., were purchased by Dayna Deans.
