Swindon funeral director Pearce Funeral Services has been shortlisted for an award at this year’s Funeral Planner of the Year Awards, run by one of the UK’s leading funeral plan providers, Golden Charter.
Taking place on Saturday 21 September at the Royal Lancaster London, overlooking Hyde Park’s stunning Italian Gardens, the annual event celebrates the achievements of independent funeral directors.
Speaking about their nomination John Pearce of Pearce Funeral Services said: “We all feel immensely proud and very humbled to be nominated for a second year running, for this prestigious award. As a local family funeral service we take great pride in the high standards of service, care and support we aim to achieve with every family we come into contact with. This is also reflected in the feedback from these families we have had the honour to serve. Our aim is to always provide this high level of service, either when meeting families at their time of need or providing the best service possible during the arrangements of a funeral plan for the future. It is with this in mind that we offer a full 100% guarantee on funeral directors fees and third party costs for both burial or cremation when arranging a funeral plan, regardless of how long in the future that may be. Not all funeral plans offer a 100% guarantee on third party costs, this one of the areas that makes us stand out from others. We are delighted to have been nominated again for this award by Golden Charter, a funeral planning provider that is also owned and managed within the independent funeral sector.”
Suzanne Grahame, Golden Charter’s Chief Executive, said: “Independent funeral directors’ dedication to the families they serve is inspiring, and these awards highlight that dedication across our UK-wide network of Independents.
“Being nominated shows the excellent service the team from Pearce Funeral Services has delivered to the local community, helping families through the funeral plan process and supporting them when they need it the most. We are all looking forward to a night celebrating that tireless work.”
The Funeral Planner of the Year Awards will mark the biggest annual gathering of independent funeral directors in the UK, who make up a majority of the funeral profession.
