RIP R Sage ur a ledgend & ull be back

Wednesday, 6 November 2013



In case you missed it, the Mary Mayer Funeral Home, run by the mischievous Richard Sage under the moniker of Mark Kerbey, is in liquidation. He’s still there and was sighted at the crem a couple of days ago. Our spies have him under observation with strong binoculars. 

Where next will he rise again from the dead? 

Thank you, Nick Gandon, for spotting his latest demise.

      NO! Not again.

      Has someone tipped off trading standards and the local press?

    So much of what we do is based on trust. I am proud to be able to telephone any funeral director in Britain and totally rely on their word that they will assist me in the manner requested at exactly the time requested and at a fair price. I have almost a lifetime of doing this around Britain and of course, have assisted other funeral directors in a similar way when asked. The rotten Mr Sage is but one rogue in our midst, the tiniest blot on an otherwise decent landscape. Regrettably our law allows him to get away with his dodgy activities as a lifestyle choice.

    You’re right, it’s not funny, Kathryn. What he normally does is bolt for Spain at this juncture.

    I wonder how many funeral plans he sold…

    After being left ‘holding the body’ (literally) by Mr Sage – I guess I will never get the £000’s of business he promised in the future then 😉

    He seemed such a nice, honest bloke as well…
