New family-run funeral service opens in Aylesbury
A new independent, family-owned funeral service opened in Aylesbury town centre earlier this week.
Legacy Funeral Services is based in Buckingham Street and they say their business philosophy is to provide a personal, bespoke and efficient service to the community.
James Burnett who runs the service with a colleague has been working in the industry for 16 years – since he left school – and his colleague has 30 years experience.
Mr Burnett said to us: “What really inspired us to do it was the pricing structures of funeral directors. There's been a lot in the press lately about how expensive funeral directors are so what we wanted to do was try to offer people a bit for their money.
“We've been lucky enough to get a lovely premises. We've got a big service room so we can offer people a simple service without the big fees of crematoriums. They don't have to pay to hire a room – they can use our room.”
