History

Simpson-Gaus Funeral Home has been serving Kingston, NY area families for years. We are honored to be a part of the rich history of this community and plan to be a part of it for many years to come.

In 1953, Frank H. and Julia Guido Simpson opened the Frank H. Simpson Funeral Home. The residence, which was built circa 1911 by the Fields family, was then remodeled to accommodate two small viewing rooms.

In the mid 1960's the funeral home was renovated. A two-story expansion was added to the back of the building, which added a new chapel and arrangement office. The basement, which is the casket selection room, and the main chapel, were enlarged.

In 1981, the Gaus family purchased the funeral home from the Simpson family and subsequently the corporate name was changed to Simpson-Gaus Funeral Home, Inc.


In November of 2011, Paul Hammerl purchased the funeral home.

A great deal of pride and care has been put into this facility and more importantly into the quality of our staff. We pride ourselves in maintaining a state-of-the art showroom within a beautiful and comforting setting.

We are proud to continue operating as a family owned business.
