Helping Families and Friends Honour Their Loved One
Hello my name is Arron Turner, I am the Co-Founder and Manager of Meadow Funeral Directors Ltd. From leaving school I joined the British Army and spent 3 years as a Driver, Radio Operator in the Royal Logistic Corps following from being an Army Cadet, I first started working in the Funeral Industry for a very reputable Company being Alan James Bradley & Sons Ltd. Funeral Services at just aged 17 years whilst on leave I worked on a casual basis and become a Funeral Operative whilst still serving and then on a Part-Time basis upon leaving the Regular Army, I then joined the Reserve Army (formally Territorial Army) in the Royal Military Police gaining experience in all aspects of policing and problem solving. During this time, I also worked for the Forensic Science Service as an Administrator for Northern Firearms Unit until my job was made redundant following the closure of the Company when Police Forces gained the full Forensic Government Contract, then becoming Full-Time for Alan J Bradley & Sons where I continued to work for 12 Years in total gaining valuable experience in Funeral Directing as a Funeral Director and finishing as a Funeral Consultant. In the month of January 2020, we opened our doors establishing Meadow Funeral Directors but this was not the first time the doors were opened as a Funeral Directors the Chapel of Rest was opened by
The Worshipful Mayor of Tameside Councillor Martin Wareing J.P on 28th September 1988 and was Blessed and Dedicated then being owned by Vernon Shipley and Family known as Vernon Shipley Funeral Directors which was an Independent Funeral provider later being bought by the Co-operative Funeral Care and become a Corporately owned company following the Co-op’s move of location the Building were left dormant for an number of years and this is where ourselves come in and gave it a new lease of life returning back to an Independent, Family-run Funeral Company offering low-cost Funeral Services from Direct Cremation to our own Pre-Paid Funeral Plans and everything in between. Having served in HM Armed Forces for 10 years I am smartly turned out and I uphold the Values and Standards of the British Army that are instilled in me I feel this is an advantage when it comes to the planning and preparation of a loved one’s Funeral arrangements.
