Hope and Sons Funeral Directors —

Find out first hand the latest developments, history and current trends from a Hope and Sons Funeral Director.

Informative Learning

Hope and Sons believe in the importance of ongoing community and public education. The “funeral service sector” has changed, evolved and developed through the decades.

We offer friendly advice and informative content. It is accurate and timely and it is good to hear first-hand knowledge.

Community education

We love having group visits and tours and are happy to provide Guest Speakers.

In-service training has been a specialty over the years with us visiting many rest-homes and hospitals, and others like the hospital, Queen Mary, and the Fire Service.
