We have considerable experience in the funeral profession and regard it as an honour to be able to assist families at such an important time. Caring for that lost loved one and assisting the family with such an important event as the funeral, is not only a privilege for us, but also a tremendous demonstration of trust placed in us by the family.

We are very proud of the excellent facilities that we have at all our branches. Our premises have been renovated to our specification and provide us with all the facilities which would be expected of a modern funeral home.

We are proud to be a full member of the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) and adhere to their Code of Practice in all areas of our work. The NAFD symbol has long been adopted as a kite mark a guarantee of high quality professional care for the bereaved. The NAFD Diploma in funeral directing is recognised as the gold standard throughout the profession.

As an independent firm, we are also members of The National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF). SAIF is a trade association whose members are all independent funeral directors. The funeral service we offer is not part of a national or international conglomerate or chain, but is privately owned and managed. In fact, a large proportion of SAIF members' funeral homes have been run by the same family for generations.

Independent funeral directors are known for their high standard of service and a caring, traditional approach to their local communities, 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. SAIF has approaching 700 members nationally. By choosing a SAIF member when the need arises, you are therefore assured of a trusted and caring professional who is dedicated to serving the needs of the community.
