Coseley Branch Funeral Staff

Based at Heath Hayes, Dave Thomas is Halliwell's regional manager.

He has lived in Hednesford all his life and is well known in the local community. Dave entered the funeral profession in 2007, joining Tamworth Co-operative Funeral Service seven years later. Prior to that he worked as a prison officer and was a security manager with Boots for several years.

He says nothing compares with working in the funeral industry. “It’s about caring for the families and treating them with professionalism and empathy to ensure their loved ones get the send-off they deserve. To me a simple thankyou from families is the greatest reward I could ever get.

“At Halliwell I feel privileged to manage and work alongside a dedicated and caring team of highly professional funeral arrangers and operatives.”

Dave is married to Lisa and has four children and a dog called Jax. He is a passionate entertainer and loves hosting snooker and darts games in his man cave at home.

Yvonne Harper has worked in the funeral industry since 1999 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.”
