Great Wyrley 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.

Funeral arranger Kath Walker is a familiar face in Great Wyrley, having lived there for more than 35 years. She is a member of St Mark’s Church in Great Wyrley and joined Halliwell in 2004. Kath has helped many families through their loss over the years and derives a lot of satisfaction from her work.

“I enjoy dealing with families, and sometimes people walk in off the street to arrange a funeral. It’s whatever suits people best.”
