‘999’ work­ers open fu­neral home

Rossendale Free Press - - Obituaries -

●● David Daw­son and Han­nah Vaughan of Sig­na­ture Fu­ner­als A NEW fu­neral home has opened - and is promis­ing a ‘fresh, orig­i­nal way’ to ar­range a loved one’s fu­neral.

Sig­na­ture Fu­ner­als, of Bolton Road West, Rams­bot­tom, is jointly owned by for­mer fire­fighter David Daw­son and ex-po­lice of­fi­cer Han­nah Vaughan, who both live lo­cally with their re­spec­tive fam­i­lies.

David and Han­nah of­fer clients the op­tion to get away from ‘stan­dard­ised’ fu­ner­als while still re­spect­ing the tra­di­tions of the past.

Han­nah said: “We be­lieve in giv­ing peo­ple the choice of or­gan­is­ing a fu­neral that truly re­flects the life of their loved one.

“It can be a sim­ple, value-ori­en­tated cer­e­mony, or a more com­plex tai­lored one.”

Sig­na­ture say there has been a move away from the more tra­di­tional Vic­to­rian-style fu­neral ar­range­ments for a more per­son­alised ser­vice.

Although they do pro­vide the more tra­di­tional fu­neral, they say cer­e­monies can be held at sports clubs, pubs or the de­ceased’s favourite out­door space.

They also of­fer pack­ages which sup­port fam­i­lies on low in­come, claim­ing ben­e­fits or those who sim­ply do not want a fu­neral ser­vice at all.
