FP opens new branch in Guildford

Surrey-based James and Thomas Funeral Directors has expanded by opening a new branch in Merrow, Guildford. James and Thomas, which also has branches in Cobham and East Horsley, has chosen a location in Epsom Road, to serve the local community.

The brand new building has a reception, arranging room and a chapel of rest for mourners to pay their respects.

Established in 1892, the family-oriented funeral directors are now part of Funeral Partners Limited (FP), one of the largest and fast-growing funeral businesses in the UK.

FP Regional Development Director Pete Dearing said: “This is an important location for us. Everything has been designed very sympathetically with the local community in mind.

“The death of a loved one is always a difficult time and we want to ensure that our surroundings help people to cope with very emotional circumstances. Our new building will help to achieve this.”

Marie Tall has been appointed as the Funeral Arranger, moving from the company’s Horsley branch. She will be supported by FP Branch Development Manager James Ray, who said: “We look forward to working closely with local people and extending the excellent service and quality of care that we provide across the James and Thomas group.”
