A family-run funeral directors has been set up in Grantham.

He said: “We are very much a family concern and the atmosphere here is so different. My last business was in Lincoln and I have learned a lot from that. I will slowly integrate myself into the local market.”

Mr Price said there were a lot of myths about the funerals business and controversy over funeral prices. He said he wanted to dispel those myths and provide a value for money service.

He said he had spent a fortune on the premises, taking it back to its glory days, but with contemporary colours and subtle tones with pictures on the walls of how the town used to look.

The company’s logo is a hand holding an apple with a nod to Isaac Newton but also to the care and support given by the business.

Mr Price, who employs six people, will also run a weekly Forget Me Not Friendship Group for people who have been bereaved.

It will meet every Friday from January 11 and is an opportunity for those who have lost a loved one to meet up and talk with others if they wish. A small donation is collected and this goes to St Barnabas Hospice and Cystic Fibrosis.
