About Us Meet the in memory of life team
As an independent and family run funeral business, we treat each of our families as if they were our own. We pride ourselves on our care for your loved one, exceptional funeral arrangement and our dedication to creating the farewell you are looking for. We aim to make the process simpler, more transparent and above all to give you the time to focus on what is important
On the day of the funeral, you will be greeted by one of our Funeral Conductors, either Mark, Brian, Martin or Geoff. The conductor, recognisable with a top hat and cane, will be your main point of contact and will compassionately guide you and all attendees through the day. Each of our conductors are highly experienced and will answer any of your questions as well as providing instruction to our team or family members who choose to carry the coffin.
Funeral Care & support
Our team will bring your loved one into our mortuary care using our specialist private ambulance vehicles. We will respectfully follow your instructions for their care which may include embalming, dressing in their own clothes, make-up, shaving, hair-styling or any other requests that you may have.
On the day of the funeral, our team of professional pallbearers (coffin bearers) and chauffeurs will be there to support you together with our funeral conductor and any officiant you have chosen for the day. Our team will always be immaculately dressed in matching smart uniforms. If you wish, you can also request less traditional attire for our funeral team too
