We have the experience

Our independent, family run business has provided a professional and caring service in East Kent of the highest standard for over one hundred years, ensuring individual needs are met during this difficult time.

When you experience a bereavement, a funeral for a member of your family is likely to be one of the most difficult days of your life. Everything your family and friends ever thought about a loved one is expressed on the day. When someone dies it comes as a great shock, sometimes the death may be expected, but nothing prepares you for the emotional shock of losing someone very close.
