New business with established director launched by Funeral Partners

A Funeral Director who has helped thousands of families during a near 40-year career is delighted to be carrying on serving his community in the newly formed Godalming Funeral Service in a building which will be lovingly restored to its former glory.

Paul Weightman is running the business which has merged with neighbouring funeral business James & Thomas Funeral Directors, based in Woodbridge Hill, Guilford, to create two branches under the Godalming brand name, in the Surrey area supporting the growing needs of local families.

The second brand new branch will be based in Meadow Croft, Bridge Road, Godalming, which was a funeral home Paul had previously worked in before it closed in 1990. Since then, it has been used as a chiropractor’s before being vacated.

The same team and quality service in Woodbridge hill will be available for the people of Meadow Croft, Surrey, led by the well-known and respected local Funeral Director.

Paul, 55, knew he wanted to be a Funeral Director before he left school, with the seed of his plans being planted when he attended his grandfather’s funeral aged 15. He has enjoyed a lengthy career in the local area, arranging and conducting hundreds of funerals each year, serving his clients and their loved ones with empathy, respect and exemplary standards of care.

He is now looking forward to his new role as Senior Funeral Director at Godalming Funeral Service, working across both the Guildford and Godalming branches, continuing to support his local community and surrounding areas

“I have been privileged to meet and help thousands of families and have met some truly wonderful people during my 39 years in the industry,” he said.

“I enjoy the job and always have – you get immense satisfaction from it when you can bring some light and positivity to people’s difficult times.

“After the refurbishment has completed it will be a fitting nod to the past to be back working in that building serving bereaved families.

“I look forward to getting back out into our communities and supporting our local places of worship, businesses and families.” Please do come along and see Paul, and to read about more exciting developments and the branch opening visits
