T.W. Birks & Son nominated for Funeral Planner of the Year award
Huddersfield, Holmfirth and Sheffield funeral director T.W. Birks & Son has been nominated for a 2015 Funeral Planner of the Year award for Yorkshire and East Lancashire.
The nomination came during a competitive year. Run by market leading funeral plan provider Golden Charter, the awards are the biggest gathering of independent funeral directors in the UK, with this year’s event the largest ever held.
Funeral Director Neil Birks said: “We are all delighted to be recognised by Golden Charter for going the extra mile and offering a first class funeral planning service.”
Ronnie Wayte, Golden Charter’s Chief Executive, said: “Achieving a nomination is more impressive than ever in the awards’ most competitive year. With funeral plans continuing to grow in popularity, this nomination reflects the fantastic work being done by T.W. Birks & Son.”
The Funeral Planner of the Year Awards focus on the funeral planning achievements of independent funeral directors, who make up a growing majority of the funeral industry. With recent Mintel figures showing that the average price of funerals has increased 88% in the past ten years, more people are choosing to use pre-paid funeral plans to freeze the cost of the funeral director’s services at today’s prices.
