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. This is the official wording
An Enduring Covenant Between
The People of the United Kingdom,
His Majesty’s Government and all those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces of the Crown and their families.
We are the only funeral director in Devon, Cornwall, Dorset to have signed
Countersigned by Col. Neville Holmes South West Commander
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.
One of only 10 funeral directors in the UK to have ever signed the Covenant

Prestigious ERS Silver Award Holders
We were delighted to receive the prestigious ERS Silver Award in 2022.
As a small business we knew we had to work really hard to obtain this award as only 1 other funeral director has ever achieved it in the UK, so we were over the moon when we were notified,
