The company founding dates back to 1852, when the Harrigan family provided dignified funeral services under the name John Harrigan General Furnishing Undertakers. In 1901, William C. McVeigh joined the team and worked alongside members of the Harrigan family. William became owner of the business in 1938. He changed the name to McVeigh Funeral Home, Inc. and moved to the current location in Albany, NY. Upon his passing, son William J. McVeigh took over the business and continued the tradition of serving Albany area families. Later, third generation family member William E. McVeigh joined the team, followed later by his daughters Kristin and Laurel. Over the years, the funeral home facility underwent major changes and renovations, and more staff members were added to the team. However, the traditional values and foundation of professional, compassionate service remains the same. Today the funeral home is operated under the direction of fourth-generation President Kristin McVeigh-Parente, along with Vice President & Funeral Director David Parente.
