Why an independent funeral director?

We know and appreciate local customs and expectations because we have served our community since 1912. All our attention is concentrated on satisfying the needs of our customers. We are not distracted or bound by corporate rules handed down from head office. We are flexible and responsive to your needs.

As an independent family funeral directors we are able to offer a service which is often in excess of 20% lower in cost than the larger groups.

This is our business. We take great pride in our Private Church and our vehicles. We are immensely proud of our staff, for whom we maintain a regular training programme to ensure the highest level of professional service. Not only do we want to meet your current needs but we also want to build a relationship of trust, so that you will return to us in the future.

We have a long term commitment to our community. This is where we live and work. It is where we plan to stay. When you need us, we will be here. Large concerns answer to shareholders. We answer to YOU. In our locally owned firm there is no pressure from head office to increase profits. We know that our business will do well when we serve you well.

Although we are locally owned, we are not limited in our service. We can assist your family in the event of a death occurring away from home, whether it be in Mainland UK, Ireland or further afield.
