    It’s not often you see a corporate video and come away feeling it was credible and that the staffers meant what they said.
    Good old Dad, who got what it meant to do this work, and passed it on whole to these fine chaps.
    PS Compare and contrast with the phoney care streaming out from the next fillum posted up on this fine blog!

    A breath of fresh air in a dark dank week where ‘Exposure’ took us away from the commitment and beauty of having a ‘A Dead Good Job’

    …What an inspiration! The bit I most admired? “We take ownership”

    Jenny, Fran

    spot on, terrific people and I particularly enjoyed the comment regarding a ‘home removal’, so no casual staff clearly employed here

    and here’s the link to these good people over there in BC:-

    Pretty much sums it up in the first 30 seconds – a beautiful summary of exactly how a funeral director should be. If only everyone privileged enough to be helping families who have been bereaved were as insightful as these guys.

    Only this…that these are the kind of fds that people need to know about. This is what everyone should be entitled to expect when they walk into any branch of any funeral home in the UK.
    Lets hope we get there one day!
