Richard was born and brought up in the village of Oxenhope and now resides with his family in Oakworth. A committed Christian and local Church Warden, he is married to Tracy and is father to three children, Emma, Ben and Will.
Richard has spent the whole of his forty years in the funeral profession, serving and caring for the bereaved and their loved ones both in the Keighley area and in the City of Bradford. He holds the National Association of Funeral Directors Diploma in Funeral Directing, the Funeral Service Managers Association Certificate in Funeral Management and is a fully qualified member and past Yorkshire Divisional chairman of the British Institute of Embalmers.
Richard’s compassionate, personal, flexible approach to the requirements and wishes of each individual bereaved family are second to none and following a long career working for larger organisations, he feels the time is now right to apply that approach in his own, well established name.
