The business was passed on to his daughter Marian Gormley (Nee McMenamin) who married Patrick Gormley (Goles, Cranagh) who also ran a bar in the village of Desertmartin.
When Marian died in 1933 the funeral and bar was passed on her son Brian A who married Ella McKenna (Tirkane, Maghera) who also inherited the bar and funeral directors from her late brother Dan who passed away in 1944.
