Funeral Directors’ investment in new fleet ensures highest standards for Wirral families

A Funeral Directors which has been helping families for nearly 70 years has welcomed a brand new fleet of hybrid vehicles to serve their clients in style.

Quinns Funeral Directors, which has branches in Greasby, Hoylake, and West Kirby Wirral has been serving the local community since 1956. The company was founded by the late David and Julie Quinn and is now managed by their daughters Angela Dallinger, Tina Morris and Michelle Clarke.

Originally a carriage master and bearer, Mr Quinn operated the business from his home in the 1950s in partnership with his wife Julie, moving to the current business premises on Greasby Road in 1966.

Having provided cars for Whelan’s Funeral Directors of West Kirby, Mr Quinn took over this funeral home after the owner’s death in the early 70’s and acquired a property in Hoylake in 1982 to open his third branch.
