Halliwell Heath Hayes Branch

A professional, caring funeral home at the heart of the Heath Hayes community

Halliwell Heath Hayes branch with funeral staff

Staff at our Heath Hayes Halliwell branch care about your peace of mind as much as giving your loved one the send-off they deserve. Our professional, friendly and dedicated funeral arrangers take the pressure off bereaved families in their time of need.

Before and after the funeral, they take charge of all the practical arrangements and liaise with the coroner and other authorities when necessary.

They guide you through the choices available and ensure you receive the best service possible to match your requirements and budget. Our funeral arrangers have received many thank you letters from people who appreciate the beautiful and respectful way their relatives have been celebrated.

With many years of experience between them, our staff can organise everything from floral tributes and headstones to press notices and orders of service. You may already know them as familiar faces in the Heath Hayes community.

In our modern and comfortable surroundings, they can expertly advise you on all aspects of our comprehensive funeral services. We have a fleet of luxury limousines at our disposal, as well as horse-drawn funeral carriages, a motorcycle hearse and other types of vehicles available for bespoke funerals.

If you want to spread the cost of a funeral, you can also take out one of our pre-payment plans.

Halliwell Funeral Service’s main branch at Heath Hayes was built in November 2007 and re-dedicated in January 2008.

The facilities at Heath Hayes includes a bright and airy entrance area with comfortable seating, two chapels of rest, a memorial office, two private arranging rooms, and a purpose-built mortuary. Upstairs is a meeting and training room, where the Open Arms bereavement support and friendship group meets every Thursday at 11am.

Heath Hayes 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.

Deb Styles is an experienced funeral arranger who joined the profession in 2010. She has worked for two different Co-operative funeral providers and loves her role at Heath Hayes.

Before entering the funeral industry, Deb worked for courier company City Link for a number of years.

When her father died in 2008, she experienced first-hand just how important funeral professionals are to families mourning the loss of special people in their lives. She says the love and care she received that day from Co-op funeral staff fostered her own interest in becoming a funeral arranger herself.

“We received a lot of guidance and kindness during a very difficult time, and it made me realise how rewarding the job could be.”

Deb moved to Hednesford from Sutton Coldfield 34 years ago and felt an immediate connection with the area. “I have always enjoyed living here. The people are so friendly and it’s just a stone’s throw away from the Chase.”

Deb is married to Mike and has two grown-up sons. Outside work she loves spending time with friends and family.

Andy, who has an NVQ level 3 diploma in customer service, said: “Our function is to help people when they’re feeling low to get through the process more easily and to give them the right information.”

Married with two children, he likes to relax by playing golf and walking on Cannock Chase.
