We are delighted to announce that A.B. Walker has been named the best medium sized funeral planner in the Southern region at this year’s Funeral Planner of the Year Awards, run by funeral plan provider Golden Charter.
Hosted by radio DJ Ken Bruce, the awards took place at the spectacular National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh and featured a performance by the world-famous Red Hot Chilli Pipers.
In addition to the Funeral Planner of the Year accolade, the Woodland Trust has dedicated trees on behalf of A.B. Walker which are to be planted in recognition of the company’s achievement.
We are pleased that the service we provide has been recognised with this award.
A.B. Walker is at the heart of the community and has been supporting bereaved families for nearly 200 years.
Death is something that no-one wants to think about, and that’s natural. But we know that for many people planning their funeral has brought peace of mind.
Planning ahead can help to ease the financial and emotional burden on loved ones at a distressing time.”
Golden Charter CEO Suzanne Grahame said: “The respected and caring work of independent funeral directors within their local communities often goes unrecognised and so it gives me great pleasure to congratulate the team at A.B. Walker for their tremendous achievement in winning this award.
“The award recognises the excellent service the team from A.B. Walker has delivered to their local community, by helping individuals through the funeral plan process and supporting families when they need it the most.”
The Funeral Planner of the Year Awards celebrate the independent funeral directors who are excelling in promoting pre-paid funeral plans, and by doing so providing peace of mind for families that everything is taken care of.
