A common theme amongst Funeral Director Websites customers is that they’re pro-active not only in wanting to have the best online presence for their business by working with us but also by investing in all areas of their businesses development. We highlight in this post how two of our customers featured in the December issue of the SAIF Insight Magazine with full page articles.
Gary Staker Funeral Services – Helping Children to Cope With Loss
A full page article in December issue of the excellent SAIF magazine highlighted how Gary Staker Funeral Services strongly believe in offering a genuine after care service to their families, Memory Bear is a new initiative in line with that ethos that helps children cope with the loss of a loved one.
The cuddly teddies have a zip-up compartment at the back where kids can store momentos and keepsakes relating to the family member or friend they’ve lost.
Speaking to Funeral Director Websites gary explained ‘For some years now we have sent families a small book, produced by the bereavement charity Cruise following the funeral to let them know they’re not alone. We’ve now extended that support to younger members of the family and so far it’s doing really well and we’re receiving great feedback.’
Peter Barnes Event Features in SAIF Insight
The company have completed an extension of their premises and held both a dedication ceromony for their Chapels of Rest and held an open day.
The Chapel blessing was presided over by Rt. Reverend John Flack supported by other local ministers. Attending the event were the Barnes family, their staff, friends, business associates and Paul Allcock of SAIF. The open day held the following day gave visitors an opportunity to tour both public and work areas and to view coffin products, Golden Charter Funeral Plan information and funeral stationary. There was also a horse drawn funeral carriage in attendance.
Funeral Operations Manager John Almey and staff created a more relaxed environment than the normal business agenda and made visitors feel comfortable in asking whatever questions they wished. Special thanks went to Townies Carriage Hire, Terry Smith Coffins, Ecoffins and Greenfield Creations for support.
