Death Understood

Since death (properly understood) is the true, ultimate purpose of life, I have for several years past made myself acquainted with this truest and best friend of mankind so that he has for me, not only nothing terrifying any more, but much that is tranquillising and consoling.

And I thank God that he has bestowed on me the good fortune of providing the opportunity (you understand me)  of recognising death as the key to our true blessedness.

I never lay down in my bed without reflecting that perhaps I (young as I am) shall never see another day; yet none of all who know me can say that I am socially melancholy or morose. For this blessing I daily thank my Creator and wish it from my heart for all my fellow man.

    Why use an independent funeral director?

    The independent funeral profession has a long and proud history of providing a personal, caring service to local communities.

    Single minded devotion

    With an Independent Funeral Service all of their attention is concentrated on satisfying the needs of the family. They are not distracted or bound by corporate rules handed down from head office. They are flexible and responsive to your needs.

    Devoted to families,
    not profits

    Large concerns answer to shareholders. Independent family businesses answer to you. In a locally owned firm there is no pressure from head office to increase profits. Our business will do well when we serve you well.

We are currently designing some new sites with lots of new ideas. Please keep checking back or sign up to our newsletter for updates.
