Business Description

Long Established Independent Funeral Directors
Ref. CQ196
Asking Price : OIRO £375,000
Location : North Wales/Chester

The business currently operates from three different leasehold properties. Two of the sites are located on the High Street in adjacent towns and are highly visible to the community. These two sites have receptions, offices and beautifully appointed chapels of rest, together with cold store, preparation areas, toilets, kitchen areas and ample staff/customer parking.

All three properties are located within easy reach of each other. The business has built up an impressive infrastructure over the years so it can provide a complete funeral service to clients and take away much of the stress and worry for what is a difficult experience for most clients families.
The business has been successful for many years mainly as a result of the wonderful level of service that it offers. As an independent, family run business, the personal touch and a friendly, caring attitude are what separate this business from much of the competition.

This business would be an ideal acquisition for either an existing operator looking to expand or indeed for an investor with no background in this sector to date.

All offices are beautifully and tastefully appointed and in excellent condition. Each site is self-contained and has fully equipped preparation areas with hydraulic lifts, cold stores etc.

The business has its own stretch limousine, hearse and transportation van. All in excellent condition with low mileage.

Key Strengths:

Having been run by the same family for many decades, the business has always been determined to maintain very high standards. This pride in the name of the business and its strong reputation has helped to keep the business successful. The business has been located in the same town centres properties for many years. This has helped to make sure that the name of the business is recognized by the local community.

Key Opportunities:

The current owner has actually been with the business since it started over 50 years ago. By his own admission the vendor would agree the business would probably benefit from a new injection of energy and business acumen to increase future revenues. The current pricing policy is due an update which could certainly increase new revenues.

The area in which the business operates has seen its population grow over the years. This trend is continuing as the area is benefiting from further development.

There are two High Street offices (in neighboring towns) both with their own reception area, offices, chapels of rest (one has one chapel the other has two), preparation and storage areas (inc. cold stores), together with toilets etc. The third site is non High Street and this is where the main preparation work is done, as well as where the vehicles are stored internally. This third site also has a chapel of rest, offices, kitchen, toilets etc. as well as workshop area.
