People are the focus of opening ceremony
The people touched by the funeral profession were the focus at the opening of the HC Grimstead funeral home in Pinner, North London.
The Revd Paul Hullyer, who conducted the service to bless the chapel, placed special emphasis on the bereaved and those who work in funeral service. His words came as part of an official open day and chapel dedication ceremony at the new premises.
The occasion was also attended by Asad Omar, Mayor of Harrow, and local councillor Nizam Ismail and Quentin Edgington, president of the Western District London Association of Funeral directors. Other guests included members of the clergy and representatives from the Registrars Service and St Luke’s Hospice amongst others.
“The transformation of the new premises has been outstanding, and the refurbishment has been completed to the highest standard,” said manager Edward Brunskill. “It is a privilege to be the manager of the new funeral home and the stunning premises complement the first class fleet of Jaguar vehicles.
“Besides two new local funeral arrangers – Marie Crane and Michele Lussagnet – we also have a great team of staff, who are very experienced and who always deliver a friendly and highly professional service. They aim to treat each bereaved person as they would expect a member of their own family to be treated.”
