It is more than 35 years since Piers first started helping families say goodbye to loved ones with carefully crafted words and appropriate rituals. Now, working with many Funeral Directors across and beyond West and North Yorkshire, he regularly takes services in Rawdon, Lawnswood, Skipton, Cottingley, Stonefall, Nab Wood, Scholemoor, Oakworth and Burnley crematoriums. He also regularly conducts burials across the region.
Piers is caring, reliable, a good listener, and highly experienced writer of eulogies. He is known for his friendly and caring approach to families and his long experience of dealing with many types of situation. Funeral directors have described him as a 'true professional' and 'someone we can always rely on'. Confident and down to earth in his approach, he is experienced in leading funerals on all types of occasion.
If you have a funeral to arrange, please either contact him directly or ask your Funeral Director.
I was born in Yorkshire and grew up in Lancashire so I've got the best of both worlds for a northerner! And having lived in many places since, including France, I love meeting people of all backgrounds. My wife, Gill, is a long established filmmaker and currently training as a counsellor. I'm also a Dad, and have two grandsons. I have experienced my share of personal loss too, and have had the privilege to speak at my parents funerals, as well as those of close personal friends. All of these aspects of my story help equip me for my role.
I used to work for the church as an ordained minister but now I work independently and enjoy the freedom I have to be alongside people of all backgrounds. I'm committed to being totally inclusive.
When I'm not working, I love walking in the hills, taking photos and reading - and a really good pint. I love life - and believe each day is a gift.
