In 1915 Thomas Warner Crow joined his
brother Aubrey Follis Crow, already in business, as a funeral director. They operated out of a small store behind
the Read building in Scottsville, Ky.
T. W. Crow and A. F. Crow
are pictured here with their first motor driven hearse.
In 1926 the brothers parted
ways. A. F. Crow went to Fountain Run and then on to Glasgow,
Ky. where he started A. F. Crow Funeral Home in 1928. A.
F. Crow & Son Funeral Home is still family owned and operated
by the third generation of A. F. Crows, Follis Crow.
T. W. Crow continued the
funeral business in Scottsville and brought the next generation
in to the firm as soon as he was big enough to ride in the hearse.
In 1936 Thomas W. Crow Jr. graduated high school and in 1938
the firms name was officially changed to T. W. Crow & Son
The business was located
several places in Scottsville before finding its current home.
In December 1941 T. W. Crow and his son opened the state of
the art facility on North Court Street. In 1965 a complete
remodeling and addition took place creating the current establishment.
Thomas W. Crow Jr. and
Thomas W. Crow III are pictured picking up a new hearse at the

As times changed and the building
changed so did the employees and the next generation enter the firm, Thomas W. Crow III in 1970 and Hannah Crow Ryan in
1979. They are pictured here with their father Thomas W. Crow Jr. and his staff Phil Smith and Bobby Carter.
In 2000, Susan Crow Wimpee, the fourth
generation, started mortuary school and bought an interest in the business in 2006.
