Crematorium Assistant

Sharon has worked in the funeral industry, initially as a Funeral Arranger, progressing to Funeral Director and latterly as an Estate Planning Lead. Sharon has a wealth of experience dealing with the bereaved, helping families create a celebration of a loved ones life.
Sharon says “I’ve always considered it to be the most privileged of jobs as people are placing their trust in you to help them make the right choices and to get everything right for them at a time when they sometimes don’t know what they want.”
“I believe people need to know not only they, but their loved ones are being placed into safe hands.”
