Keith Logue & Sons Funeral Directors has been operated by four generations of the Logue family. Today we operate across Coffs Harbour, Woolgoolga, Urunga, Bellingen, Dorrigo and surrounding districts, including all areas of NSW and throughout all parts of Australia. See our journey below from humble beginnings, to today as one of NSW’s leading Funeral Directors.
Funeral directing firm today know as Keith Logue & Sons originated from very simple beginnings in 1910.
In July 1910 Mr Pigot commenced business in Coffs Harbour trading as T.H. Piggott Builder and Undertaker.
It is believed that the funeral business was purchased around 1917 by Mr D.P. (Pat) O’Keefe, a Wheelwright, who operated the business from the corner of Lyster and High Streets, Coffs Harbour.
Mr O’Keefe was succeeded in 1923 by Mr Claude H. Everingham, an Automotive Engineer and Cabinet Maker.
Mr Everingham built a chapel and offices on the Northern side of High Street, midway between Castle and Gordon Streets.
After the war Mr Everingham sold the site to Schafers from Grafton and moved the building to 37 Little Street Coffs Harbour.
In 1955 the business was purchased by L.L. and A.E. Rayner
A former train driver, Mr Rayner conducted the business until his retirement in March 1967, when Keith and Margaret Logue trading as Keith Logue & Sons purchased the business.
In those early days Keith attended to the funerals and monuments while Margaret juggled the demands of raising a family with office duties and florist requirements.
Keith and Margaret’s son Bob joined the business in 1976. This made a 3rd generation funeral director in the Logue family.
In 1979 the district’s steady growth necessitated a move to the present purpose built funeral home at 42 Park Avenue, Coffs Harbour.
Currently the funeral home employs 12 full-time staff and has access to a supply of experienced casual staff when necessary.
Serving Coffs Harbour City and Bellingen Shire since 1967 Keith Logue & Sons is still a family owned and operated company. Bob and Debbie’s two sons Aaron and Ashley joined the business in 2010, while daughter Candace joined in early 2012 to become fourth generation funeral directors.
The Logue family is proud of its experience and tradition of quality and caring service. A fleet of modern vehicles are available to enhance and dignify their funeral services.
