He also takes great care of receiving families loved ones into our care. David has also been a mentor for quite some time and is a trained first aider.
Two years ago after training he was very privileged to become a Funeral Conductor and says that he very much enjoys the role of meeting all the families and taking great care in the planning to make sure each funeral goes very smoothly. One of the most rewarding parts of the job is making sure all families are happy and each funeral has gone as smoothly as possible and being part of a great team. He has found that every funeral is different and all families have different ideas on how they would like the funeral to proceed. It gives him great pleasure in making sure all the families wishes are adhered to and carried out with the greatest of respect.
