What is the Armed Forces Covenant?
The Armed forces Covenant is a series of pledges from the people of the United kingdom to support members of the Armed Forces community. The official wording
An Enduring Covenant Between
The People of the United Kingdom, Her Majesty’s Government and all those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces of the Crown and their families.
Why we are different as an independent
We are the only funeral service in Devon, Cornwall, Somerset & Dorset to have signed the Armed Forces Covenant. Only ten funeral directors in the entire UK have signed and all of them are independents.
We believe that supporting those who have served their country is the biggest thank you we can give.
Working alongside the Royal British Legion and Torbay Veterans we believe we can really make a difference to veterans, serving personnel and their families.
