Your best interests are the priority of everyone who works with us
You can expect to be treated how we’d expect to be treated ourselves – with compassion, with respect and receiving the reassurance that we’re acting diligently and professionally on your behalf. Our experience means we take nothing for granted and we’ll take as long as is needed to listen to what you would like.
Throughout, you’ll be guided by experienced funeral directors and arrangers with the empathy to understand your situation. They’ll work hard in the background before, during and after the funeral to create a positive memory for the life being celebrated. You can rely on our discreet presence at all times – quietly making sure everything progresses smoothly but always on hand for anything you might need.

What Do You Like Best About Your Role?
I really enjoy meeting with the families when I conduct funerals but also enjoy speaking to them and other staff members when on the phones.
Have You Done any Other Roles in The Industry?
I started out as a driver/bearer, I then went on to conduct funerals and now I conduct and run the diary for the Midlands area.
Specific Memories and Proudest moments
I am proud to be working with a team that gives 100% to our families and I feel lucky to have met so many families over my 20 years in the industry and helped them in their time of need.
