The Bewley family is at the heart of the operation, with Aaron leading the team with his wealth of experience passed down from his father Jonathan. He is supported by this mother Kate’s interest in all things floristry and tress, and his wife Amber’s passion for a diverse choice of options, including eco-friendly, contemporary and traditional, so that each family has the opportunity to have a bespoke service of their choosing. They are proud to be working with such a highly experienced and dedicated team to deliver bespoke services to their local communities.

The care and kindness offered by this highly respected local family and team is often described as similar to a friend at a time of need, rather than a funeral service.

  • Jonathon - Director

    Jonathon - Director

    Jonathon Bewley died on 31st October 2023, age 70 years.

    Jonathon had been in the funeral profession for 40 years and was devoted to serving the local community with his wealth of knowledge and experience of the funeral trade. In more recent years he took on a more semi-retired role, but with the acquisition of Leafy Lane Woods in 2021 he was able to direct his enthusiasm for all things related to trees and ecology. This gave him great pride in knowing the positive difference his investment in the woods was making to the environment that would last for generations to come. Jonathon will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

For years she was creating beautiful floral tributes to convey the thoughts of families at a difficult time.

  • Amber - Business Manager

    Amber - Business Manager

    Amber's work history has always evolved around providing fantastic customer services. Over the years she has keenly developed her skills and experience in business, staff management, procurement and facilities management, and so it made sense to join her husband and funeral director, Aaron Bewley, at the family firm as business manager in 2014.

    Part of her role here is to develop and market the products and services of the business so that families are aware of the various contemporary, traditional and eco funeral options that are inclusive and accessible to anyone.
