Work With Us


We strive daily to be an organisation who can be trusted and depended upon by all around us.

We value the privacy of our clients and their client families and encourage everyone to embrace our motto;

Whom you see here, What you hear here, When you leave here

Let it stay here.


Integrity combines honesty, trust, reliability.

We cannot show integrity when we look to justify our actions.

We will always practice integrity even if the outcome  may not be favourable.

“Perfection is a long way off, but improvement can be made to happen every day”


To always regard the feelings, wishes and the rights of others.

To follow and to promote a code of conduct that embodies 

All opinions even when they differ from our own,

But not to conform with the majority when it conflicts with our integrity


Created uniquely to serve the funeral community as we see fit.

We do not lend our name to any outside enterprise.

Our purpose is to support all those who seek it.


‘Live and Let Live’ sets us free from the compulsion to 

Criticize, judge and condemn.

Avoid looking up and looking down at each other.

We are all teachers and we are all learners.


We practice kindness and exercise patience.

Being kind not only has a direct effect on others but has a positive impact on you speak only kind words.

Look to how you can help change not force change kindness is the mightiest force in the world.
