Coseley Branch Funeral Staff

Trevor Palmer, who heads up the Halliwell funeral division, was a director of an engineering company before deciding to sell up the business and switch careers.

That was seven years ago. Now, after extensive training in all aspects of the job, he is using his management experience to ensure our branches in Coseley, Great Wyrley, Heath Hayes and Pelsall maintain their high standards.

Trevor also has a hands-on role as the face of Halliwell, conducting virtually every funeral in the area.

“It was my wife Susan, who works in head office for the firm, who suggested I go into this because I also do a lot of driving and it seemed a good fit. In the manufacturing business I always dealt with members of the public. So I knew I could adapt, and I wanted to be able to give something back to families at their lowest point. I love the role.”

Yvonne Harper has worked in the funeral industry for more than 15 years and holds a Diploma in Funeral Directing (Dip.FD) from the National Association of Funeral Directors. She is also a Member of the British Institute of Funeral Directors.

As a funeral director, Yvonne conducted many services and was often seen at the head of funeral processions as they wound their way through the streets of Coseley. These days she is the first point of contact for bereaved families, dealing with all the arrangements and giving advice on the options available.

Yvonne, who lives and works in the village, also oversees the computerised funeral arranging system, which was installed in 2010 for all of the Halliwell branches, and trains staff.

She says: “I don’t think you choose to do this. It chooses you. I like to think of this as a one-stop shop where the family can get everything they need for the funeral. I really do love my job. I enjoy meeting the families and looking after them. It’s very rewarding.”

Funeral arranger Sandra King divides her time between our funeral homes at Heath Hayes, Great Wyrley, Coseley and Pelsall. Sandra has lived in Heath Hayes since she was ten. She is a member of the Constitutional Bowling Club in Heath Hayes and travels all over Staffordshire playing crown green bowls.

Sandra finds her work very rewarding. “You learn something every day about people, different religions, customs and funerals,” she said.

Her own father Derek’s funeral was arranged through the Heath Hayes branch. His favourite Frank Sinatra tunes were played while he lay in the chapel of rest.
