'Only female funeral director in Worcester and Droitwich marks one year of owning Hoskins

Worcester Editorial 30th Mar, 2024   0

A FUNERAL director is marking her first year anniversary since taking over as owner of Hoskins Funeral Direct.

Carole Clayton took charge of the firm in Astwood Road, Worcester, last year and is believe to be the only female Funeral Home owner in Worcester and Droitwich; she is also a Funeral Celebrant.

Carole joined as a partner in the business, which has been in Worcester since 2012, four years ago and prior to that, she supported the, then owner Stephen Peregrine, with Marketing and Business Support whilst learning the Funeral Industry.

The company prides itself on offering a range of different services to suit all tastes – from affordable funerals and direct cremations to more traditional funeral and cremation services to suit not only, the family, but also their budget.

The location, on Astwood Road, makes Hoskins ideally placed to provide services, not only at the nearby Worcester Crematorium, but also the surrounding Crematoria of The Vale at Fladbury, Wyre Forest or other crematorium of choice.

Hoskins has its own Chapel of Rest where loved ones and friends can peacefully pay their respects.

The firm believes every funeral is unique and reflects a life well lived, while helping those left behind come to terms with their bereavement and grief.

Carole said: “As Funeral Directors and Undertakers, the Team and I, feel it is an honour to be asked to arrange the final journey for someone that you hold dear to you.”

Whatever the choice or budget, Hoskins Funerals Direct can help with every aspect from when a loved one dies to ensuring they are given the most appropriate send-off, tailor made for them and those close to them.

Hoskins Funerals Direct is available 24-hours-a-day – call 01905 27862 or 07942 114560 or visit hoskinsfuneralsdirect.co.uk for more.
