At Slade's Funeral Homes we are pleased to have a professional, caring and understanding team to offer a strong support system to the families we serve. We pride ourselves on our personal manner treating each family as if they were our own.

Edward (Ned) and Elizabeth Slade made their dream a reality when they established there first funeral home in 1993 in Carbonear. In 2006 their vision grew when they established another Funeral Home in Bay Roberts. In 2012 together, Edward and Elizabeth decided to purchase their newest funeral home in the town of Upper Island Cove.  We believe that families deserve Funeral Service choices that respected their values and honor the people they cherish.

These are instrumental in establishing the high standards of services their clients have come to know and expect at Slade's Funeral Homes and we continue to provide unique ideas to better serve the families that entrust such dignified services with us. The Slade's take great pride in providing professional service to their communities they serve and recognize the loyalty the communities offer in return.


Has resided in Carbonear their entire life. They are very proud of their 4 children: Kenneth (Kim), Keith (Terri), Krista (Chad) & Katie (Andrew) & their 6  precious grandchildren: Nathan, Claire, Ryder, Hayden, Leah & Finn. 

Both Elizabeth & Ned believe in being full participants in their community. Over the years Ned was a member of the Lions Club, Knights of Columbus, Scout Leader for 25 years, Parish Community and a member of the town council of Carbonear for 12 years in the compassadity of Councilor & Deputy Mayor. Elizabeth is a member of her church choir and she was the first president of the Catholic Woman's League in Carbonear.
