Annual BIFD award ceremony

It was a pleasure to attend the British Institute of Funeral Directors annual conference where students received their diploma in funeral service, the highest funeral service award achievable within the funeral profession. Clive is one of only six tutors in the United Kingdom, who is always proud of students achievements after all the hard work they have put in.

Student success

On September 27th 2018 Clive was pleased to attend the certificate presentation for the diploma in funeral service, in which two of his students passed with flying colours.

We understand only too well the need to provide the very best for the families that we serve therefore, we have updated our fleet with a pair of Jaguar vehicles, a hearse and matching limousines.

Rev. John Dracup

September 5th was a special day for the Parish of Christ the King, Meltham. The instillation of the new vicar Rev. John Dracup took place in a heart-warming ceremony at St. bartholomew’s Church, Meltham. The Bishop of Huddersfield Jonathan Gibbs led the service to a full congregation.

We would like to extend a warm welcome to Rev. John and his lovely family and hope they settle in well to our village life.
