For funerals with a gentle touch

Our 'Ladies in Hats'

Our lady funeral directors, or ‘Ladies in Hats’ as they are known, have become recognised in the communities they work and live in for their dedication to providing the very best care for bereaved families.

Ladies in Hats

Since joining forces with her husband Trevor in 1977, and becoming the first lady funeral director in the area, Melanie now heads a team of eight ladies covering the Hunnaball Family Funeral Group branches in Essex and Suffolk.

With the support of their male colleagues, the ladies arrange and conduct funerals, gently guiding families through the difficult times following a bereavement, and helping to make the right decisions for the funeral. They are highly skilled and qualified to offer expert advice and practical help, as well as offering emotional support at all times.

As experienced professionals, they are able to organise the funeral from start to finish, making sure that each and every funeral reflects the life of a special person in a very individual way, and becomes a good memory for family and friends.

Their style, elegance and calm femininity add a sense of grace to the funerals they conduct, and their ‘gentle touch’ is much appreciated by the families they serve, at a time when a woman’s understanding can help to ease the burden of hurt and loss.
