History / Biographical
McNeill Funeral Service was established by John A. McNeill in Dutton, Ontario in 1922. The business was located at 193 Shackleton Street and provided funeral and ambulance services to Dutton and surrounding area, including Southwold, Dunwich and Aldborough Townships. Mr. McNeill passed away in 1952. The business subsequently became the Arn Funeral Home.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of four volumes of funeral ledgers from 1931 to 1947. Entries include information on residence, age of death, marital status, maiden name (if applicable), birth place, parents, cause of death and burial details. On occassion, invoices or notes are attached depending upon the services provided. Entries are in chronological order with an alphabetical index at the beginning of each ledger. Fonds also consists of seven photographs of Mr. McNeill, the funeral home and vehicles. Two photographs depict a ceremony for the "Unknown Airman" at Fairview Cemetery in Dunwich Township. This was a funeral and memorial service conducted for the body of an unidentified airman who perished while training at Fingal. He was never identified. A complete description of the ceremony and circumstances can be obtained in the August 26th, 1943 edition of the Dutton Advance. Fonds furthermore consists of the publication "A Tribute to Valour" published in December, 1945 at Dutton.

London and Port Stanley Railway Station or Depot, St. Thomas. Located just north of Talbot Street between St. Catharine and John Streets. In CP 253 note the sign in the window reading: "R.C.A.F. Personnel - Attention. R.C.A.F. Personnel Proceeding to Stn Aylmer on Posting...If Service Transport to Station Aylmer is not Available after 15 Minutes of Arrival, Phone Aylmer 680, Local 67 for Transport", a reference to the R.C.A.F. No. 14 Service Flying Training School in Aylmer, Ontario. Note also a van at right marked "Ralph Crocker Florist", two telephone booths on the station platform at left and an empty baby carriage left in front of the station. The station was constructed at this location in 1920; demolished in January, 1968; replaced by a replica station that officially opened September 20, 2013 and houses the City of St. Thomas Tourism Office. Previously, the L. & P.S. depot was located on the east side of Station Street, just north of Kains Street, opposite the J. Heard & Co. mill (later Elgin Handles) - the former depot was repurposed as a freight office when the new station was constructed on Talbot Street in 1920. In CP 565 London and Port Stanley Railway car 14 is visible.
CP 253: ca. 1940, due to sign in window.
CP 565: ca. 1935, due to presence of St. Thomas Gas Works lines behind the station. The photograph must have been taken before 1936 when the Gas Works was removed.

History / Biographical
The Dutton/Dunwich branch of the Canadian Red Cross was formed on October 27, 1939 as the community mobilized for the Second World War. The organizational meeting was sponsored by the Dutton’s Women’s Institute. The first president was Bill Hollingshead and the first campaign manager, R.E. Fraser. Mrs. Hilda Crawford was in charge of the workroom committee and remained in this position until the committee was disbanded in 1960. During the war years approximately $4,000.00 was raised per year to cover such items as socks, sweaters, blankets, pyjamas, hospital gowns, pneumonia jackets and quilts. In 1943 blood drives began under the auspices of the Independent Order of Oddfellows and continued until after the war, when they were disbanded. They started up again in 1960 and were conducted at various locations through the community annually. The Red Cross Room on Main Street had wheelchairs, crutches, walkers and canes for loan for short periods of time. This branch supports the Red Cross Swimming and Water Safety programs, held in summer at the local pool. The Bobier Convalescent Home has two Red Cross volunteers who spread cheer weekly. The Emergency Services Committee helped out those in the community who had been victims of fire.The Red Cross has been at work in this community, helping to aleve human suffering whenever and wherever they can for many years.
Scope and Content
This fonds consists of the administrative records of the Dutton and Dunwich Branch of the Canadian Red Cross Society, and are divided into the following series:
-Minutes, 1939-1946; 1982-1986
-Correspondence, 1941-1959
-Financial records, 1941-1968
-Miscellaneous records, ca. 1970-ca. 2000
This fonds would be of interest to researchers studying the origin and development of the Canadian Red Cross, the Canadian Red Cross Dutton/Dunwich Branch in particular, the lives of Second World War Servicemen and service organizations in Canada and Ontario in general.
