Muriel Grimmett, Coventry’s first female funeral director, is still going strong at the grand old age of 80. She reckons to keep going for as long as her faculties will allow.

She headed up Grimmett and Timms until 1996, when the firm was sold. She now works with the independent firm AJ Lloyd (recommended by the GFG), where proprietor Darren Lloyd has told us that it’s Muriel’s formidable principles, standards and example which most inform ethos and practice.

    Ahh how lovely I just stumbled across Muriel on your blog.
    And 2 years on shes still at it!!

    She loves the job as I do and I aspire to be (at least a little bit) like her.

    Proof if proof were needed that funeral directors do it for the love of it. There is no better feeling than helping a family in their time of need.
