G Wathall & Son Ltd

101-111 Macklin Street, Derby, DE1 1LG
It was in 1858 that the cabinet making and furniture broking business established by Leonard Wathall in Siddalls Lane decided to diversify into funerals. Leonard’s son, George, established G Wathall & Son, originally in Green Street, Derby. Since those early days, the business has gone from strength to strength, six generations of the Wathall family have been involved in the firm, still to this day remains a family affair with Leonard’s great-great granddaughter Helen Wathall at the helm. Helen’s two daughters, Bec and Charlotte, have recently joined Helen, being the sixth generation to work at the firm. It is the longest established independent funeral directors in Derby and was the largest single-site Independent undertakers in the country until the opening of the Ashbourne Branch in 2007. The business has witnessed many changes during the last 150 years, most recently the addition of two new branches in Alvaston and Borrowash in early 2016.
