OUR HISTORY/ LEGACY
The company, formerly Otway’s Funeral Home, was established in the 1880s by George R Otway. It was then located on the corner of Halifax and Gore Streets in St. George’s. With his passing, the business was continued by his son, George B.W. Otway relocated the business to the Carenage, St. George its present location.
In the 1970’s Mr Leslie Bailey who was a dedicated employee of the funeral home and close friend of Mr Otway, was offered and agreed to purchase the business and subsequently changed the name to Otway/ Bailey funeral home..
In 1998 upon his death, his two sons, Leslie E. Bailey and Clinton Bailey who were already involved in the funeral home, took over the management of the company and became the second generation of Bailey’s to carry on the family business.
Clinton and Leslie together with devoted employees are proud to be able to continue the tradition of respectfully serving, honouring and meeting the emotional and spiritual needs of family, friends and loved ones under the new banner Bailey’s Funeral Home.
