Prior to her new role, Linnane started her Westerleigh Group career as a crematorium assistant. She has worked in the sector for nearly three years, having previously worked in the care industry as an office manager and deputy care home manager.
She joined the bereavement industry following the loss of her father as she wished to provide care and support to help through grief.
Linnane said: “Knowing I can give families the same level of care as I received and take away as many worries and unknowns as possible, both before and during their service, is a privilege.
“I am eager to keep growing the business and look forward to meeting new funeral directors and families. I want to give exceptional care which is unique and personal to each and every family.”
She added: “We have an open house policy here which can help dispel any myths people may have about what we do, and I hope that, the moment families enter our beautiful, tranquil, site, they will see we have a beautiful crematorium which is a place where people want to return to.”
