John Pearce DipFD MBIE

As the son of a local vicar I have always appreciated what it means to serve the needs of a community. I learnt from an early age of the total commitment and sympathy that is required when dealing with the needs of people. This led me to begin my career in the funeral profession in 1990.

Over the years I have gained extensive knowledge and experience, studying with the National Association of Funeral Directors and achieving the qualification of the Diploma of Funeral Directing in 1998. I also became a fully qualified member of the British Institute of Embalmers in 1997.

I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience over many years, so I am able to offer an excellent and professional service.

I put care, compassion, and courtesy, before everything else and these qualities are the foundations of everything that I and all my staff do.
