From the Oxford Times:
The former owner of Oxford’s last independent funeral directors has spoken of the difficult decision she made in selling the business.
S & R Childs, which has four branches in the city, is now part of Dignity, the UK’s biggest provider of funeral services.
Sandra Homewood was one of the founders of the business in 1997 and said: “Selling a business that you have nurtured and developed over many years is not a task to be undertaken lightly.”
She said Dignity had assured her that it would be “business as usual” for the company, which will continue to trade in the same way.
