A Traditional Family Business
Formed in 1927 by George Whitaker, the business has operated from the same premises for over 90 years and is an integral part of the local community.
George was joined by Maurice Leeson in 1936 and Norman Feather in 1947 and the pair took over ownership. Norman died in 1959 and Maurice continued to run the company until his death in 2002.
Lyndon M Leeson joined the company from school and, after working with his father Maurice for many years, became owner of the business following Maurice’s death.
Lyndon took what was a joinery and undertaking business and transformed it into the professional, independent funeral service it is today.
The company offers a 24 hour, 365 day Personal Service.
We do not use call centres, this ensures clients always have access to one of our qualified, experienced Funeral Directors.
Funeral arrangements themselves can be made at anytime by contacting us. We will arrange to meet you at your convenience.
In selecting ourselves as your Funeral Director, we will ensure that each and every detail is discussed with you thoroughly to ensure your wishes and those of the deceased are correctly carried out.
