In 1982 Steven Near embarked in to the funeral profession with the
Co-operative Funeral Service. In 1984 he created Steven Near Funeral
Directors and remained there until October 1987. Shortly after which the
business was taken over by a multi-national company and as such ceased to be an independent family owned concern.

became Near & Near Undertakers.
