65% of funerals in Northern Ireland are carried out by independent funeral directors. The Locally Owned Funeral Director is part of the Community.
The independent funeral profession has a long and proud history of professional service to local communities. Carrying on the family tradition is a way of life for independent funeral directors throughout the country.
In all forms of business today there are large international companies that have made their profits by taking over small firms. The funeral profession is no exception.
The trouble is, there usually isn’t any change of name to inform you of the difference. This makes it difficult for you to distinguish between the family owned firm and the large conglomerate. If you are unsure, just ask
It is extremely important for you and your family that you know who you are speaking to. When you need the services of a funeral director you should turn to the firm which has investment in your local community, established over many years. We are focused on satisfying the needs of our clients, and are not distracted or bound by corporate rules handed down from a head office or share-holders. We take personal pride in our roll within our community. This is our business. Our neighbourhood is your neighbourhood.
Not only do we want to meet and exceed your current needs, we also seek to build a lasting relationship, so that you will return to us if ever, or whenever you need us in the future. We have a long-term commitment to our community. This is where we live and work. When you need us, we’ll be here. Large concerns answer to senior management and share-holders. We answer to you.
Funeral traditions vary greatly around the country. We know, appreciate and work with local customs and practices because we have served the local community for many years. On the other hand, the staff and management assigned to a funeral firm from a national company will most likely be from another area and unaware of local traditions, therefore causing great disappointment when expectations are not met.
If you’re like most people, you will find it’s easier to deal with people you know. You like flexibility and personal service…We feel the same way. Whether you need our advice when choosing a pre-paid funeral plan or information on the choice of funeral services available and costs.
