As an individual we use this service only once and when we do we are not aware of it. However, for relatives and our friends it's vital that this service is personal and appropriate. Jacqueline Wilson, of Jacqueline Wilson Independent Funeral Services, is determined, that for something as important as paying our last respects to a loved one, a personal and totally professional service is the only way to achieve it.

Although she has premises and a Chapel of Rest in High Street in nearby Clotton, she is opening premises at 52 High Street Tarvin to be even closer to the local community. The new premises will be blessed in an opening ceremony at 1 pm on Monday 11th August by representatives of St Andrews and the Methodist Church. Local residents are most welcome to attend or drop at any time during the rest of the afternoon.

Jacqueline, the daughter of a past Vicar of Hargrave, has been in the funeral business for 15 years but it was only 18 months ago that she followed her conviction to set up her own independent funeral business. She currently employs 7 full and part-time staff who all live in the local area. This is in line with Jacqueline's aim to be integral part of local community and she is already making links with other local businesses that can provide ancillary services.

To further underline her commitment to the wider needs of the local community her stone mason is in the process of renovating the Tarvin War Memorial. Later in the year she has agreed to be a sponsor the Plantation Bonfire Night event and has offered to run a hot chestnut stall at our Christmas Fair on the 6th December.

Jacqueline said " I want local people to feel free to drop in to see me at any time to discuss any aspect of funerals such as pre-paid plans, funeral costs, and any special features that reflect own individual and private needs."
