Welcome to our independent family funeral directors

Our Community

Here for you, in life and in death..

Whilst we are very good at caring for families when a loved one dies and organising personalised, creative and affordable funerals, we are also very focussed on the people in our community.

As Robert Frost said, “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: It goes on”

We are here to support you when someone dies and we are also here to support you in any other way we can too

Our Funeral Director Stacey Booth is taking on a huge fundraiser to provide Hattersley with 5 public access defibrillators.

For every minute someone is in cardiac arrest without CPR and access to a defibrillator, their chances of survival drop by up to 10%. Having a public access defibrillator (PAD) available in an emergency can be life-saving, especially in rural areas where ambulance response times may be longer

We will happily meet you at your home to sort out the funeral arrangements, and it helps, we can collect you to visit and spend time with your loved one in our Remembrance Room. Wherever you live, we are a caring, professional and customer-focussed team and we will always be as accessible to you as if we were just round the corner from you.
