Your best interests are the priority of everyone who works with us
In a modern world of big business and corporate companies it is sometimes difficult to maintain the personal touch and give the service that was once expected from everyone. Burgess & Harper Funeral Directors try to preserve that standard that was set by our predecessors. To that end, our staff are all local residents who know the local traditions and are familiar with the Wolverhampton Churches and Clergy. It helps us to help you when you are arranging a funeral service for someone special and who is dear to you.
Meet the team:
Over recent years it has been my privilege to oversee the funeral arrangements and conduct the funerals for many families. Families return to us time and time again and from our first meeting we build a bond that forms lasting friendships and extends our family.
Being entrusted by the previous owners Ken Burgess & Peter Harper to conduct my first funeral and having the confidence in me to respect and continue the level of personal care that the Burgess & Harper family founded the business on. With Funeral Partners I am able to continue and enhance our original traditions.
I love all sports, especially rugby, which I used to play in my younger days, now I confine myself to being a spectator.
What I like most about my job
Meeting the families and learning about the person that has passed – it is a privilege.
Enjoying life to the full.
My role as a funeral arranger every day is different, it can be very busy. I get to meet all sorts of people – doctors , registrars, ministers and I talk to lots of people on the telephone.
It is a very rewarding job and the day always seems to go very quickly.
The most satisfying thing is when we get cards from families as a thank you. Then you know that you have done a good job.
Being able to look after my mother in law when she suddenly passed I did all her hair and make-up and also arranged all the funeral.
As a mum I always keep busy with family time holidays trips but I do manage some me time and I travel with friends.
I have worked in the funeral Industry for four years in my role as a funeral arranger I find the position a very rewarding and a privilege to help the families at their most vunerable time in their lives.
In my spare time I spend a lot of time with my two grandsons, reading and socialising with friends.
