It’s all burgundy

Camp Hopson bought out by Dignity Plc

“Fifth generation family business Camp Hopson & Co has sold its funeral services brand to listed group Dignity.

Camp Hopson has been trading in Berkshire for more than a century and operates a department store in Newbury.

It sold the business and assets of Camp Hopson Funerals to Dignity for an undisclosed sum in a deal led by Quercus Corporate Finance.

It is the second Camp Hopson deal that Quercus has worked on in recent weeks. Earlier this month, the team advised the company’s board on its sale of Camp Hopson Removals to London-based Ward Thomas.”

How will this play out?  Let’s take a guess.

The name remains, only the colour changes.

    Hi Louise, we have checked Camp Hopson, and all remains unchanged for the time being. We have updated that they are a branch of Dignity, and re published. Will monitor over the coming weeks.

    Additionally, they have a very loyal following in Newbury (my family are from the town) they were always competitively priced for their services. I sincerely hope that this does not change.

      Please keep us informed Nick.

      I’m interested to see if the name remains.

    Thank you for the information, we knew they were being sold but not to whom. We have temporarily unpublished them from the site pending a revised price check.

    Trebles all round. Let’s speculate that the cost of the funerals will rise?
