The business is based in Ramshill Road Scarborough to serve the communities of Scarborough, Filey, Bridlington and the wider Yorkshire Coast Area.
The business is owned and operated by Kevin and his wife, Jayne. Kevin, is a qualified Funeral Director and Funeral Manager, and has nearly twenty years experience in funerals working for mainly large corporate businesses.
Until recently Kevin was the Area Development Manager working for a Corporate company covering several branches in Leeds and Yorkshire region. We wanted to offer a unique personal service from an Independent family funeral business with affordable and simplified funeral pricing.
Kevin says "I feel there is a lot of confusion around what the actual cost of a funeral is". So I decided to offer 'all inclusive' packages with set prices" This includes the Funeral Directors services, coffin, hearse and ALL necessary disbursements. This means the client knows exactly what the overall costs are at the outset and are not shocked when suddenly extra fees are added for Cremation or Doctors fees. This gives clearer transparency to clients when making the decision which Funeral Directors services they choose to use.
As an 'Independent' family business we offer greater flexibility of choices without the constraints of Corporate Management edicts, or being beholden to share holders. Although our packages offer set prices and are inclusive we can still offer flexibility within them to meet our clients needs. Tell us your requirements.
Given ever increasing funeral costs it makes sense to plan ahead and many people are now realising the benefit of having a pre paid funeral plan. Not only does this offer peace of mind on a financial level but for the family left dealing with bereavement you can leave your personal instructions on what type of funeral you want. This can include Religious services, Hymns, Music etc and takes pressure and worry off your loved ones at the time of bereavement.
We offer Pre Paid Funeral Plans through 'Safe Hands' and will be happy to explain them to you further, either in our office, or at your home. If you have an existing pre paid plan it may be you want to nominate us as your preferred Funeral Directors for future. if you require any help please contact us. Our plans can be paid by instalments and are one of the most competitively priced plans on the market. Most people ask "where does the money go to?".All monies for funeral plans are normally held by a trust fund managed by companies separate to the Funeral Director and guarantee to pay the costs of your funeral to the chosen Funeral Director when the need arises.
Kevin, and Jayne, are both brass musicians and are often called upon to play Last Post for Military funerals or civic events. Both of us play in a local Brass Band, Simply Brass in Scarborough and Kevin plays Soprano Cornet for East Yorkshire Motor Services (EYMS) Band. Kevin and Jayne are also a members of St. Mary's Church Choir, Scarborough.
If you require help on music suitable for a service then we are ideally experienced to be able to offer good advice on this matter also.

The premises were purpose designed by Kevin to provide excellent client facilities. These include two Private Chapels of Rest or Rest Rooms and a Private Arranging room off main reception. The colour scheme was chosen by Kevin to give a more modern feel for clients.

Slow down don't feel rushed into funeral arrangements that's when sometimes bad decisions are made.
Shop around - Costs can vary hugely so check pricings.
Ask about 'Simple Funeral' options.
Can you get financial help with funeral costs? Check with DWP or Citizen advice bureau.
Cremation or Burial as a preference? Burial is usually more expensive.
What makes a 'Good Send Off'? At a funeral, people remember thought and goodwill rather than lavish expense.

Kevin organised and took the service for my father. He was there for all my family's needs during the most difficult of times. Approachable, caring and the consummate professional. Kevin went the extra mile for my father's service and arranged for some of my dad's brass band music to be recorded and played at the service. Kevin delivered the funeral my dad would have wanted. My family is very grateful and appreciates all Kevin and his wife have done to help us cope. He treated us all like family I highly recommend his services!
