Rhys Askham

Rhys first joined Rosedale on work experience in 2011 and continued working through the school holidays until he started his apprenticeship in 2013. He took a gap year in 2017 to go travelling which is where he gained experience working in a funeral home in New Zealand.

He is a qualified funeral arranger and administrator and is currently undertaking his qualification in Funeral Directing. His job is to make sure the two funeral homes run smoothly in serving their families, to take care of families loved ones and to look after families on the day of the funeral.

Rhys went to Hartismere High School in Eye, Suffolk and grew up around the area. He is a keen sportsman, very much into football and a life long Ipswich Town supporter. He plays football in Eye and has a qualification in advanced scuba diving.

He says that the people he works with are a good team and always willing to support each other. This makes it a good working environment to come into and is particularly helpful in a job which can be delicate and difficult.
