“We offer a modern service with traditional values, specialising in all types of Funerals. We are committed to providing a very unique and bespoke, ‘HAVE IT YOUR WAY’ service. We cater for all religions and cultures and we specialise in the little things that are often overseen by other Funeral Directors. We offer a very personal, family orientated service. We are first and foremost a family caring for other families with the utmost DIGNITY, HONESTY and RESPECT, at the very heart of everything we do.
After losing our own special loved ones, we have made it our vocation in life to help families with, what we know is the hardest and saddest time of their lives.
We strive to respond to the wishes of every family, by arranging the most appropriate and fitting farewell relevant to families’ personal and financial circumstances. We treat families as if they were our own and we never want families to face distress and grief alone. We will be there every step of the way personally, not only as a local undertaker but as a family friend. From the very first phone call, right up to the day of the funeral, bereaved families will be supported by the same person throughout. We will do everything in our power to fulfil families’ wishes.

What do you love about being a family business?
We love being in the position to help others. We love having that unbreakable family bond, a shoulder to cry on and having each other around for the good times and the bad. It’s most definitely not all roses and butterflies let me tell you but we wouldn’t change being a family business for the world.
