About Doves Franchises

Doves Group was established in 1883 as a funeral directing organisation in Durban initially named Doves Funeral Services. Doves Group emerged in 1959 when Homes Trust Funeral Services, through a series of acquisitions, acquired industry respected funeral directing companies such as Goodall & Williams, Doves, Doves & Adlam Reid and Jones & Rice. During the 70’s, Saffas (South African Federation of Funeral Assurance Societies) also became part of Homes Trust Funeral Services.
