Hello and welcome to our website. My name is Michael Lawrence and together with my son Robert, and funeral director’s Kim, Angela and Jo, we operate Family Funeral Service. We like to think we provide excellent levels of service.
The offices are in Barming and Bearsted, both in Maidstone, and the new office in Headcorn where I also now live.
I have been serving the families of Maidstone and the local villages, for the past 40 years. Having written that I now feel really old! However as an experienced third generation, family owned business we know how to concentrate on caring for your needs with commitment and understanding. Kim Angela and Jo, (and I have to be careful here as they are all obviously a ladies, and it is quite easy for us chaps to say all the right words in all the wrong places!)
Anyway these wonderful ladies have brought us a new dimension in the service we work hard to provide. Between us, and the other excellent staff behind the scenes, you can leave us to get the details right to the highest standards, and naturally – we’re proud members of the ‘National Association of Funeral Directors’. Amongst the “behind the scene staff” is my wonderful son Robert. He will be the boss one day and he makes us a third generation funeral directors. It’s so amazing having him with me. He has a lot to learn but he is learning very quickly!
You will find Jo at Headcorn. With me moving between the three offices. I really feel that they just want me out of the way, so that they can meet all the families, and conduct all the funerals. Just leaving me to wash the cars! Still I have to say they are a great team to work with, and I have enjoyed watching them blossom into truly caring funeral directors. (but please don’t tell them I said that)
