Staff from Dawe Brothers Funeral Directors have been informing Hereford residents of the services and pre-paid funeral plans offered at the branch.

Funeral Director Keith Ellis and Funeral Arrangers Catherine Gurney and Dale Herrits attended the Hereford Crematorium Open Day on 16 September.

Every year the crematorium opens its doors to help people better understand the cremation process and quash some common misconceptions.

The number of attendees doubled from last year with the trio speaking to more than 80 people. Catherine said: “We received a really positive response from the people we spoke to, people were interested in how the crematorium was run and in the services and plans we provide.

“We all thoroughly enjoyed the day as it was a chance for us to take part in some community work and talk to people in a different environment. We hope to attend again next year.”
