Part of the Community

The Independent funeral profession has a long and proud history of personal service to local communities. Carrying on the family tradition is a way of life for many independent funeral directors. They are deeply committed to upholding professional standards. Some of the oldest, continuously operated businesses in Britain are locally owned family firms

Personal Pride

All our attention is concentrated on satisfying the needs of our friends and neighbours. We are not distracted or bound by corporate rules handed down from head office and shareholders. We are flexible and responsive to your needs. This is our business. Our neighbourhood is your neighbourhood and we take personal pride in serving you well.   We take great pride in our funeral home and vehicles. We are also proud of our staff, for whom we maintain a regular training programme to make sure of the highest level of professional service.

What’s in a name?

In all forms of business today there are big, international companies that have made their profits through taking over small firms. The funeral profession is no exception. Many businesses have been swallowed up by the giants. The trouble is, there isn’t usually a change of name to tell you the difference. That makes it hard for you to distinguish between the family owned firm and the conglomerate. Without asking you may never know if the owners your family have trusted over the years continue to make the decisions which will affect the service you receive.
