SAIF National President Paul Bowley was delighted to attend the opening of a new branch of AB Walker in Tilehurst, Reading.  The branch was officially opened by James Puxley, the Lord-Lieutenant for the Royal County of Berkshire, who unveiled a commemorative plaque.

A B Walker is a fifth generation family business, now run by brothers Julian and Matthew Walker. It has been supporting bereaved families for nearly 200 years and is one of Berkshire’s oldest family businesses. “We are proud to be at the heart of the community in Tilehurst and to be able to offer bereaved families a service on their doorstep,” said Julian.

“This is not just a branch office. It is a special place for all of those families who entrust us with their loved ones.” The Tilehurst branch is the eighth location for A B Walker, whose head office is in Reading.
