After his discharge from the army and apprenticing with Telephone City Monument Works in Brantford, Jack Pettit along with his father Roy, purchased what is now Ingersoll Memorials in 1952.

The firm was located on Tunis St. in Ingersoll and father and son operated the business together until Roy retired in the mid sixties. In 1978 Jack's son Doug joined the firm as a memorial craftsman and designer. In 1981 the business moved to it's present location on Hwy. 19 just south of the 401. This move offered greater accessibility to the public and a larger more modern facility for all. In 1993 Doug's wife Sharlene became the firm's office manager. Jack Pettit passed away in 1998 just prior to renovations being completed on our Ingersoll offices and showroom.

In the spring of 2002, in order to better serve the Oxford, Norfolk and Elgin areas, the Pettits opened Tillsonburg Memorials.

In August 2004, Wendy Kristoff Hiepleh joined our team as a memorial counsellor at Aylmer Memorials. Wendy has over 10 years of knowlege and service in the memorial industry and is a welcome addition to the Ingersoll & Tillsonburg Memorials family.

In 2005, Doug Pettit was the recipient of the Ingersoll & Area Chamber of Commerce "Industry Person of the Year" award.

Our latest retail branch, Thames Memorials was opened in the spring of 2008 to serve the residents of Woodstock and surrounding area.

As a fourth generation family business, we look forward to the privilege of serving you in the years to come.
