Funeral Administrator - Dip FAA
Pippa has lived in Norfolk for most of her life, in and around the Wymondham area.
She worked for ‘World Horse Welfare’ for a number of years before travelling the world and freelancing at national events throughout the UK.
Pippa joined Rosedale Funeral Home in the autumn of 2013 and has been the funeral administrator at Wymondham since the summer of 2016.
She is one of our resident ‘crazy cat ladies’ and you will often see her out and about fundraising for local animal charities.
Pippa loves travelling, eating out (she’s a self-professed terrible cook), sailing on the Norfolk broads and spending time with friends and family.
Pippa also volunteers for Nelson’s Journey, where she attends their Therapeutic Weekends and Activity Days as well as the Diss NJ Youth Club.
Rhys Askham is our Trainee Funeral Director for the Wymondham and Attleborough branches. He has been with Rosedale since 2012 where he completed his work experience with us. After working through the holidays, Rhys decided to
take an apprenticeship at aged 16 to further his knowledge. He took a year out travelling the world
and during that time has experienced working in a
funeral home in New Zealand. Rhys went to Hartismere High School in Eye and is local to the area. In his spare time
Rhys enjoys playing football.
Buzz has been assisting bereaved families since the tender age of 8 weeks old and can be found either sat quietly on one of our families laps or greeting everyone at the door.
He has become a little celebrity in his own right and his human mummy Beverley, is now more commonly called 'Buzz's Mum' than she is her own name.
Here at Rosedale we learnt just how healing and therapeutic animals can be especially during a time of great loss when we carried out our Animal Crackers campaign and having a bereavement dog was something that we thought could only be positive.
We appreciate how difficult walking into a funeral home can be and it has been lovely to see, first hand, people instantly relaxing and interacting as soon as Buzz greets them with his waggy tail and little terrier smile.
