About us Alec Butcher has been in the funeral profession for 35 years and is fully qualified. Having been a funeral director in Norwich for ten years, he then looked after funeral homes in Beccles, Bungay and Halesworth for a local family business as a funeral director. Prior to that he was Assistant Superintendent at St Faith’s Crematorium for six years. He has built up a wealth of knowledge and experience within the funeral profession.
Vanessa Butcher has worked as a health professional for thirty years, both as a nurse (RGN) and as a midwife. Vanessa has worked in both Ipswich and Norwich hospitals and for the last ten years as a midwife in the community. Vanessa is a fully trained Celebrant having completed her training with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants. She officiates at most of our services and we find that our families like to have the option of our own in-house Celebrant as well as other local Celebrants and Ministers.
We are a fully independent family business. We believe this is important and makes a difference. We pride ourselves on being able to provide the high quality service and attention to detail that your loved one deserves, whilst being able to keep our prices among the lowest in the area. We aim to offer a professional and dignified service. View our disclosure of interest.
Due to her many years working as a Midwife, she has worked alongside families at difficult, emotional and frightening times of their lives, needing to promote calmness and a sense of trust in a very short period of time. Vanessa says, “The family’s wishes are of the utmost importance. The funeral ceremony should reflect the loved one, their life and be just as the family wish it to be.’’ We feel that having Vanessa trained as a celebrant allows us to offer a full and complete service to our families in their time of need.
