We are a local independent family funeral business, we are not owned by a national company or corporation, we do not have to answer to shareholders only the families who entrust us with the care of their loved ones.
We are a local business and in turn we too support other local businesses.
As a family business we hold strong personal views on how we think funerals should be arranged and conducted, we pride ourselves on our extremely high standards.
We base our costs not just on our services but also on our purpose built premises, our vehicles, our staff and our traditional family values.
We have pride in our work and enjoy adding the finishing touches to our funerals, such as dressing the grave for burials with straw or hay, flowers, even vegetables on occasion. Decorating wicker or willow coffins with ivy and flowers, wearing coloured or patterned ties or buttonholes if requested, basically, just adding personal touches to make the day more memorable for the right reasons.
Most of the time these things are done without additional cost to our families.
