About Us

We are a family business with myself, my wife Rachel and our daughter, Katie all actively involved. Based at Church View, Ripponden, in the heart of the Ryburn Valley. We can trace our family roots in the greater Halifax area for over 200 years.

Although small and not part of any multinational company or
co-operative, we are able to offer everything that a large business can, but of course at a more realistic level.

A lot of our work is through recommendation and predominantly around the Halifax area but we will go anywhere in the country when required, or abroad should the need arise.


After leaving school, Andrew gained a BA Honours Degree in Business Studies and has over 35 years experience in the funeral industry.  He has a long record of service and involvement in the local community, having served as a parish councillor for nearly 30 years.


Rachel, as a qualified teacher, has taught music in Calderdale Schools for 38 years. She now assists Andrew in the planning and organisation of the funeral business.
