About Us

Our History

 

 In 1913, William Henry Jenkins, a resident Ansonia Connecticut founded our funeral home at its current location of 12 Franklin Street.

 

For the next 52 years, Bill Jenkins, his wife and daughters developed a local enterprise became a familiar host for countless families in need in the greater Naugatuck Valley.

 

In 1965, the grandson of founder William Henry Jenkins and the son of Harriette Jenkins, Frederick King, Jr., took responsibility of operating the family business shortly after his graduation from the American Academy of Embalming in New York City.

 

Following in the traditions established by William Henry Jenkins, Frederick King, Jr., continue to provide the excellent service that so many had come to know and appreciate over the years.

 

Twenty-six years later, in 1991, Frederick's son, Frederick King III brought forth the third generation of the family as he joined his father as partner and director, following his graduation from the New England Institute of Mortuary science at Mount Ida college located in Newton Center, Massachusetts.

 

Today, Frederick King III is responsible for much of the day-to-day operation of the funeral home, with his father continuing to serve in an advisory capacity.

 

Continuing to provide professional services, established by the legacy started by William Henry Jenkins now more than 100 years ago, our family stands ready to provide a caring and compassionate approach for you, and your family.
