Green Funeral Directors Award Winners 2014
Respect Funeral Services of Laughton Nr Gainsborough won the best Funeral Director of the Year Award 2014. The award was sponsored by The Association of Green Funeral Directors “a recognised nationally accredited Association” aiming to promote eco-friendly funerals. This is an area where England lead the world in the International green funeral movement.
Respect started out 5 years ago as a Green Burial Authority operating two parks, one in Scrooby North Nott’s and one in Lincolnshire. However they were increasingly asked by families to offer a one call solution and offer a whole package where customers can organise the full funeral service. Since that time several families have nominated them for the top prestigious award for Green Funeral Director of The Year. Alison Finch who runs the Parks together with Gordon Tulley explained “if you wish to check out the heartfelt thanks our customers send Respect, please see the testimonials on our website” www.respectgb.co.uk
The Good Funeral Awards celebrate the achievements of practitioners who, through a combination of high professionalism and human kindness, enable bereaved people to create great funerals. The awards are conferred by judges appointed by the Good Funeral Guide, a not-for-profit consumer advice and advocacy organisation.
Charles Cowling, director of the Good Funeral Guide, said: " Gordon and Alison Tulley are forward-thinking, groundbreaking, creative people whose commitment to beautiful yet affordable funerals has made them a formidable force for change."
