Funerals, Garstang, Funerals, Lancaster,

Arranging a funeral requires sensitive and experienced help from people who care. Meet the Caunce family, owners of the only independent funeral business in Garstang.

“People come to us as they know they will get a personal service,”  says dad Robert (pictured). “We go the extra mile – nothing is too much trouble, whatever time of day or night.”

Robert started in the funeral industry in 1985 when he worked for his future father-in- law Leonard Robinson in the Lune Valley and in 2005, he and his wife Kathryn realised a long-held dream by opening their own premises in Thomas’s Weind, Garstang.

At the end of 2011, they acquired Cliff Small Funeral Service with premises in Caton, Morecambe and Bolton-le-Sands.

Son Thomas, 25, (also pictured). and daughter Rebekah, 24, both former pupils of Garstang High School, also work full-time in the business.

The family is a proud member of the National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors, keeping to its code of practice.  

He says the family’s background in the funeral business brings a wealth of experience and stresses the personal aspect of his work.

“We can arrange an affordable funeral to celebrate the life of the deceased with total dignity,” he adds. “We will incorporate the requests of the deceased and relatives, whether it be for a traditional funeral or cremation, conventional or woodland burial or any other request such as a horse-drawn or motorcycle hearse.”

The couple, both committed Christians, are on call 24 hours a day at the number listed.

They also help people plan and pay for their own funerals with pre-paid Golden Charter funeral plans.
