About Us

    About Burgess & Harper Funeral Directors

    Burgess & Harper was founded in 1994 in Penn Road, Wolverhampton.

    The team at our Wolverhampton funeral home will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one. We have our own on-site service venue.

    Here at Burgess & Harper Funeral Directors we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.

    If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.

    Andy Foster

    Senior Funeral Director

    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.

    Proudest Moment

    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.

    Personal Interests

    I love all sports, especially rugby, which I used to play in my younger days, now I confine myself to being a spectator.

    Vicky Goodall

    Funeral Arranger

    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.

    Proudest Moment

    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.

    Personal Interests

    As a mum I always keep busy with family time holidays trips but I do manage some me time and I travel with friends.
