Nigel Groves Funeral Directors has opened in Worle High Street and the man behind the new firm can call upon 10 years of experience in the industry.
Nigel Groves hopes the people of Worle will be prepared to line the streets to give people a special send-off, and said: “I am passionate about giving people in grief a really personal tailored service at the worst time of their lives.
“We want to restore traditional values of sending off the deceased, with a traditional hearse, and asking local businesses and people if they could pause their day for just a minute to line the streets in respect as the hearse passes very slowly by.
“The deceased deserve that last chance at being shown respect and dignity as they make their last journey, and we want to involve the community as in days gone by.
