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.
