The Team

Our Funeral Consultants and support staff are highly experienced and bring to their roles a broad range of knowledge and specialist skills.

As a supportive team, we work in an environment with excellent communication ensuring that knowledge is readily shared. This enables David and Arianne to focus on supporting families and ensuring that all of their requests are met.

David

David is an experienced Funeral Director and Manager who joined the team 7 years ago. In the past, he has worked as a Manager in Customer Service and has provided patient care as a Paramedic. His experience and skills enable him to focus on providing quality care to families.

Away from work, David is a devoted husband and father who values sharing experiences with his family. He particularly enjoys music and attending concerts of his old favourites.

“I was drawn to the Funeral industry with a desire to assist families during one of the most difficult times in their lives. My focus when working to assist families is to be truly present and mindful when arranging and conducting a funeral. It is an honour to work in a role where I can assist families to ensure that loved one’s life is celebrated in full. “ – David

Arianne also has a flair for the creative, she once owned her own cake and flower shop. She values working with families to provide the best possible farewell.

In her down time, Arianne enjoys spending time with family and friends, her menagerie of animals and is often found pottering in her garden.

Being able to create a farewell to celebrate a person’s life with those close to them is a role I cherish.” – Arianne
