We were established in 1878 in Lymm by my great grandfather John Burrows.
As was common at the time in small villages, funeral directors often had a second occupation. John was a wheelwright, blacksmith as well as undertaker.
His sons followed him into those professions and Bill, my grandfather, was a proud member of both the National Association of Funeral Directors and the Master Farriers Association.
My dad, Mike Tandy married into the family and joined Bill in 1970, and carried on grandad's friendly approach to helping families.
I became the fourth generation of funeral director in our family when I followed dad into the business, over 20 years ago.
As a family, we are very proud of our almost 140 years of being of help to other families in Lymm and beyond.
