Clive Pearson was proud to lay a wreath on behalf of the Society of Allied and Independent funeral directors at the Marsden Royal British Legion Parade on Sunday July 1st 2018. The parade was to mark the end of World War 1 with a special service held at St. Bartholomew’s Church, Marsden, led by the Bishop of Huddersfield Jonathan Gibbs.
On the 1st July 2018 Marsden had many special visitors taking part in the Marsden Royal British Legion Parade.

The British Institute of Funeral Directors is an Educational Institute providing the license for qualified funeral directors. Pearsons are proud to be the only family firm in Huddersfield who are both qualified and licensed funeral directors.
The 1st of July marked the Marsden Royal British Legion Parade to commemorate the end of World War One. The parade was led by the West Yorkshire Police Brass Band (sponsored by Pearson Funeral Service) who were thankful they had been given special permission to parade in shirt sleeves due to the extreme heat!
Pearson Funeral Service were the headline sponsors for the Forget-Me-Not Children’s Hospice Colour Run Festival 2018. A brilliant atmosphere, gorgeous weather, all helped make a colourful and fun day out. Over 750 people got showered in a rainbow of colour as they ran, walked, jogged or piggy-backed their way around the 4 km course. The Pearson family and friends manned the yellow colour station with the children particularly making sure everyone got caught.
As members of the British Institute of Funeral Directors, to keep our licence we attend various educational meetings throughout the year. Last night we were lucky enough to be invited to Coleman Milne who build hearse and limousines for our profession. This was a very interesting and informative tour learning how cars are adapted into hearse and limousines.
