Why Choose an Independent Funeral Director?

Part of the Community

The Independent funeral profession has a long and proud history of personal service to local communities. Carrying on the family tradition is a way of life for us at W.S.Ingham & Son. We are deeply committed to upholding professional standards.

What’s in a name?

In all forms of business today there are big, international companies that have made their profits through taking over small firms. The funeral profession is no exception, and many businesses have been swallowed up by the giants. The trouble is, there usually isn’t any change of name to tell you the difference, this makes it hard for you to distinguish between family owned businesses and the conglomerate. Without asking, you might never know if the owners your family has trusted over the years, continue to make the decisions which will affect the service you receive when you need to make funeral arrangements.

If you’re unsure just ask

It’s important that you know who you are speaking to at W.S.Ingham & Son. Our phone is answered 24 hours a day 7 days a week and you will always speak to someone who is an integral part of our family business, not someone at one of the branches of a national company.

Personal pride
