Neville Funerals has a long history of links within the wider community. Our staff live locally and are involved with community work supported by the company; examples include voluntary work via Rotary membership and memberships of a number of local community/public service committees. By the very nature of our work we have close links with and support many religious and non-religious organisations.
As part of our commitment to the local communities we serve, we look to support organisations that provide help and support for the bereaved. Our involvement in and financial support of the Lea Bereavement Support Service is a key part our commitment, but we also support many of the local and national charities that have teams working locally, our meeting and function rooms for example are used by organisations such as Cruse Bereavement and the Road Victims Trust. In the last three years we have been working in conjunction with local hospices and organisations to run a drop in session for those who have been bereaved to talk and share their feelings which has grown in popularity.
Training has been a passion of the shareholders since the original brothers founded the business in 1875 and it continues today with our commitment to maintain our high standards through the use of competent and highly trained staff. Some of our staff have been trained in bereavement counselling by Cruse and we encourage volunteering for local organisations such as Chums (the local Child Bereavement Group). We also provide free training to our local hospital trust, nursing homes, and hospices on funeral related matters as part of their training requirements
