In 1937, John W Griffith, with his wife Doris, set up his funeral directing and wedding car hire business. His son, Peter, the current owner of the firm, joined in 1946.
The business was moved from Liscard Crescent in Wallasey, to the current premises, Millbank Funeral home in Mill Lane, Wallasey. Millbank was originally the old Clarendon High School building, and after extensive renovation, was opened for business on 24th October 1963.
Then, as now, the firm was on call 24 hours per day, seven days per week, 365 days per year. Current office opening hours are 8:00am to 5:00pm weekdays, and Saturday from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
With Peter Griffith the current owner and son, Barrie Griffith as director, the firm is also managed by Barry Lunt, Craig Saville and Roy Golding, combining a wealth of knowledge and many decades of experience in helping families and carrying out their wishes at a difficult time.
