The Thomas Funeral Home, P.A. in Cambridge was started in 1936 by the late Kenneth R. and Margaret J. Thomas. Since 1941 the business has been located at the present location of 700 Locust Street. Since Mr. & Mrs. Thomas passed away the business has been owned and operated by their sons, Kenneth R. Thomas, Jr. and John W. Thomas In July of 2003, Kenny Jr. retired from day to day operations and John became owner of the business.
During the years, as the business grew, a number of additions have taken place. In 1957 the property at 702 Locust Street was purchased and in 1962 the casket showroom was moved to the first floor of that location. In 1968 the front porch of the building was closed in and the following year a 10,000 square foot addition was built at the rear of the building for additional seating and visitation space.
An addition was made to the front of the building for an office in 1986 and in 1991 a spacious new preparation room was constructed at the rear of the building, and a handicapped ramp was added at the front in 1993. Most recently a new arrangements office was added to accommodate our families. In the spring of 2005 we completely redecorated the downstairs area of the Funeral Home keeping the Victorian and home like atmosphere we have strived to offer.
