To Shatter The Sky

If you leave me I shall not die,
Nor make grief a trumpet to shatter the sky.

I shall not ask for anything more
But to walk according to natural lore,

One foot behind the other before.
I shall wake at morning, sleep at night,

And tell unfailing black from white.
I shall use my brain to earn my bread,

Snarl when hungry, smile when fed.
I shall not die - I shall be dead.

    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.
