Julian Hussey, Director of Family Funeral Directors A. G. Down, W. G. Potter, Overmass & Chapple and E. A. Dodd & Son, has been selected from hundreds of nominees to go through to the final stages of this year’s glittering Good Funeral Awards ceremony at The Beeches in Bournville in September 2014.
Julian is now in line to win the prestigious national title of Funeral Director of the Year.
“The Good Funeral Awards reward exceptional service to the bereaved. By progressing this far, Julian has already demonstrated outstanding professionalism, empathy and a willingness to go the extra mile,” said Chief Judge, Charles Cowling.
The Good Funeral Awards are wholly independent of the funeral industry and are supported by consumer advocates the Good Funeral Guide and the Natural Death Centre.
Brian Jenner, the event organiser, said: “The Good Funeral Awards recognise all those unsung heroes who work so hard for the bereaved and whose role can so easily be overlooked. Some of the nicest people in Britain work in the funerals business.”
The Good Funeral Awards dinner is part of the first Ideal Death Show weekend. For more information go to www.goodfuneralawards.co.uk
