Funeral directors welcome younger daughter to firm

An award-winning, family-run funeral directors has welcomed their younger daughter to the firm.

Aubrey Kirkham Funeral Directors was set up by Aubrey and his wife Ann well over a decade ago, with the vision of respectfully and gently supporting grieving families across the county.

Their elder daughter, Leanne Garvey, joined the business 13 years ago.

“We’re delighted to have Selina on board,” said Aubrey Kirkham, “and it very much sees the fulfilment of both Ann’s and my dreams for the business when we founded it. It was imperative to us that the company offered only the very best, most gentle, and respectful support to bereaved people across the county, and our focus on family ethics and values has gone a long way to helping us achieve this. Now with Selina on board we’re able to move forwards even further”.

“I’ve long seen the passion and dedication my parents and my older sister have for the business,” explained Selina. “And the kindness that they show to each and every person who makes contact with the firm. I celebrated with them when their commitment to all of this was recognised by the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce just two years ago with an award for Commitment to Customer Care, and I have been considering how best my own skills may fit for some time”.

Selina will be running and managing the firm’s Frankwell office on Frankwell island in Shrewsbury, and will also be involved in Magnolia Memorials, the expanding Memorials Division, alongside Leanne and Aubrey. Her Mother Ann runs Floranz, the floristry division which looks after floral tributes.
