We were recently delighted to discover that we had been selected from hundreds of nominees to go through to the final stages of this year’s prestigious Good Funeral Awards ceremony at the Porchester Hall in London on Thursday 8th September 2016.
Our nomination was within the category of ‘Most Promising New Funeral Director’. My colleague Barbara and I attended the event and following a lovely lunch discovered that we had been awarded second place within the category. I was most delighted to accept the award from former GMTV presenter Penny Smith who was officiating at the ceremony.
For us to have been nominated, let alone come away with second place, was an amazing achievement and it’s something I am incredibly proud to have accepted on behalf of myself and everyone that makes up our small and dedicated team here. When we launched our service just over three years ago with the support of friends, I knew it would be a difficult task to offer an alternative service in the town and to win the trust and support of the local community but with their help we’ve been able to come so far in such a short time.
From the outset my one aim has always been to give the very best family care and support following a bereavement and just as important the follow on care after a funeral and I’m just so humbled that people have taken the time to nominate us.
Fran Hall, C.E.O. of The Good Funeral Guide stated “The Good Funeral Awards recognise exceptional service to bereaved people from all aspects of the funeral industry and supporting services. By progressing into the final ten nominations Edd Frost & Daughters Family Funeral Directors have already demonstrated outstanding professionalism, empathy and a willingness to go the extra mile. The Good Funeral Awards recognise all those unsung heroes who work so hard for the bereaved and whose role can so easily be overlooked. Some of the nicest people in Britain work in the funeral business and Edd Frost and his team certainly deserve the recognition they have earned by being voted as second place within their award category.”
