To try and manage and alleviate the number of people within our sites to maintain social distancing and reduce possible infection risk we are asking all of our families, suppliers and colleagues to phone us in the first instance rather than just turn up. This way we may be able to deal with your enquiry over the phone rather than face-to-face and if not, we can give you an appointment to attend. Where possible we are aiming to conduct as much of our usual business in the mornings (9.00am – 12.00 noon where at all possible). However, as always our emergency service to you is 24 hours a day and our phones will be answered whatever time you call.

Take care, stay safe, remain at home wherever possible.

I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow
of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways,
of happy times and laughing times
and bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve,
to dry before the sun
of happy memories
that I leave when life is done.

The family business was founded in the 1920’s by Mr Walter Sydney Ingham. Upon his death the business was passed onto his son Mr Gordon Ingham. Today the company is run by Gordon’s son Mr Tony Ingham.

The original office and Chapel of Rest was officially opened on Tuesday 6th January 1981 by Canon Robert Warburton the Rural Dean of Mansfield. The new extension was opened on Friday 29th June 2012 by Mansfield Mayor Mr Tony Egginton. Our modern premises are set in a rural, secluded location in Forest Town and we have no association with any other Funeral service.
