Funeral celebrant will offer the full service

Pughs of Shrewsbury is delighted to announce that one of its team of funeral directors, Phil Davies, is now a fully trained funeral celebrant. Phil has been studying for his NOCN Level 3 diploma in Funeral Celebrancy for the past six months.

“The course was a lot of hard work, but also rewarding, uplifting and very inspiring,” he said.

Phil will be working alongside the team at Pughs providing celebrancy services to families who do not want to have a religious ceremony, or only wish to incorporate very small elements of religion.

Pughs Managing Director, Peter Forrest, said: “We have seen the amount of families wanting a full religious ceremony decline over the last few years so being able to provide our own funeral celebrant, especially with our close links to our printers Copy Write and florist Forget me not Flowers, allows Pughs to offer a complete service to the families we look after.”

Phil is also available to work with families to advise and help create scripts should they want to present the tribute themselves at a ceremony.

“I have found working with families as a funeral director at Pughs to be one of the most rewarding things I have done, and I look forward to helping families further in this exciting new role,” Phil said.

Pughs of Shrewsbury was established in 1890 by Jabus Pugh and has been looking after the families of Shrewsbury, Shropshire and the wider community for more than 125 years and remains proudly independent and owned by the Pughs family.

From its premises in Longden Coleham, the family’s many years of experience allow them to maintain traditional values while taking a modern approach to funeral care.
