Stephanie started her career in the funeral profession when she left school in 1980 and worked for the Bristol/Bath Co-Operative funeral service as a receptionist. Within a short time she progressed to a funeral arranger and at 17 years of age started her British Institute of Embalmers qualification. It was during this time that she met David who was her tutor. Stephanie continued in the profession and gained her Diploma in Funeral Directing in 1987 a year after she and David came back to Nuneaton to start the family business. Stephanie more recently was invited to serve as an examiner for the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) in 2011. She has now 34 years experience in the profession.
