Previously, Harris worked for Central England Co-operative Funeral Care for six years, prior to which she worked in Central England Co-operative retail sector and Interpretation and Translation Services in Leicester City Council.
Great Glen Crematorium sits in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside. In her new role, Harris said she aims to remove the stigma around cemeteries and crematoria by proactively engaging in community work.
Harris said: “I was attracted to the company’s values, and Great Glen Crematorium is in a beautiful setting, too. I love that it is set in the countryside, as I adore nature. My aim now is to continue the great work that my new team at Great Glen Crematorium has already been doing.
“I want to support my team of colleagues, funeral directors and, of course, local bereaved families by giving them an opportunity to say goodbye to their loved ones in the best, and most uniquely bespoke way possible.”
She added: “I would be honoured to be able to help all the local bereaved families and to offer guidance and support to the wider community and funeral directors alike.”
