Company Values / About Us
Your loved one is our priority, and our family policy is to always give you the very best level of service & facilities, at the most economic price.

Laurence Jones has an earnest conviction that those who suffer personal sorrow, should receive a personal service from their Funeral Director.

He does not believe that when people's hearts are sorely stricken, they should be treated merely as "a number".

Equally, he does not believe that a funeral should be looked upon as a dreaded occasion to be carefully avoided, but as an everlasting memorial to someone near and dear to us.

Laurence Jones was not born into a family of Funeral Directors, but rather was born to be a family Funeral Director.

To ensure that his standards would be second to none, he has made a study of the funeral habits and customs of countless Funeral Firms, from as far North as Inverness, to as far South as the Channel Islands. In each case he has adopted only the highest standards, and rejected the lesser practices.
