In 1915 Thomas Warner Crow joined his brother Aubrey Follis Crow, already in business, as a funeral director. They operated out of a small store behind the Read building in Scottsville, Ky.

T. W. Crow and A. F. Crow are pictured here with their first motor driven hearse.

 

In 1926 the brothers parted ways. A. F. Crow went to Fountain Run and then on to Glasgow, Ky. where he started A. F. Crow Funeral Home in 1928. A. F. Crow & Son Funeral Home is still family owned and operated by the third generation of A. F. Crows, Follis Crow.

T. W. Crow continued the funeral business in Scottsville and brought the next generation in to the firm as soon as he was big enough to ride in the hearse. In 1936 Thomas W. Crow Jr. graduated high school and in 1938 the firms name was officially changed to T. W. Crow & Son Funeral Home.

The business was located several places in Scottsville before finding its current home. In December 1941 T. W. Crow and his son opened the state of the art facility on North Court Street. In 1965 a complete remodeling and addition took place creating the current establishment.

As times changed and the building changed so did the employees and the next generation enter the firm, Thomas W. Crow III in 1970 and Hannah Crow Ryan in 1979.  They are pictured here with their father Thomas W. Crow Jr. and his staff Phil Smith and Bobby Carter.

In 2000, Susan Crow Wimpee, the fourth generation, started mortuary school and bought an interest in the business in 2006.
