In 1962 Joe bought the old Blanchfields Bakery site at 134 Tainui St, demolished the building and built a brand new multi-level funeral complex. This included living accommodation, garaging, offices and a chapel. This building served the company until 1990 when major renovations commenced and the new extended funeral home was dedicated and opened on the 19th April 1991. This now included a new larger chapel, an organ loft for the new electronic organ, viewing rooms, interview lounge, new modern mortuary and more garaging. This is the building the company still operates from today .
The William Sampson Memorial Chapel (named after Greymouth’s longest serving funeral director) has a modern, yet traditional restful atmosphere. Within the last few years there have been interior developments as the older, smaller viewing rooms have been enlarged and tastefully decorated.
