A message from
I opened Barry Whalen: Funeral Directors in July 2013, taking forward my own personal commitment and passion for the funeral profession, with a view to serving the local communities and beyond.
Having worked within the funeral profession since the age of 18, I have been entrusted by so many families over the years, to arrange and conduct the funerals of their loved ones. I therefore pride myself in having a genuine passion for the profession – a commitment that I have passed to each member of staff within our small team.
My promise is to provide a 24-hour, genuine, caring and professional service, taking care of you and your loved one - with the utmost sincerity, dignity and respect. As a team, we will ensure full attention to every detail, assuring you that all aspects of the funeral arrangements are in safe hands. Having achieved an Advanced Diploma in Funeral Directing, I was accepted into the membership of the National Association of Funeral Directors. I also graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Management, which allows me to keep abreast of the various business changes in the modern world.
Should you require the services of a funeral director, I can only hope that you would consider an independent company such as ourselves – a team who are truly dedicated at every stage.
