Winners of Funeral Planner of the Year Awards announced
The winners of the Funeral Planner of the Year Awards 2017 have been announced at a ceremony in London run by funeral plan provider Golden Charter.
Funeral directors and staff from more than 75 independent firms across the UK gathered at the Park Plaza London Riverbank Hotel as BBC broadcaster Dan Walker announced the winners, who were awarded for their achievements in providing pre-paid funeral plans to local families.
The top prizes for National Funeral Planner of the Year were awarded to Tony Fagan Independent Funeral Directors of Swadlincote, Derbyshire, and Hammertons Funeral Directors of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, both of which are family-run businesses.
Graeme Carruthers, Managing Director of Legal Services at Golden Charter, said: “Now in their 24th year, these awards are more competitive than ever before as pre-paid funeral plans become increasingly popular. Each of the independent funeral directors awarded has demonstrated a real commitment to helping their local families plan ahead for peace of mind.”
