Welcome to New Member Grassby Funeral Service

June 9, 2014   //   No Comments

SAIF was delighted to welcome new member Grassby & Sons, based in Dorchester, in May.

Grassby & Sons was founded by Benjamin Grassby, who moved to Dorset from Lincolnshire in 1861. Benjamin, a stone carver, was responsible for a lot of the stone carving in many Dorset churches during the Gothic revival of the late 19th Century.  The family stonemasonry business continued down through the generations of the Grassby family, and in 1970, Clinton Grassby opened Grassby Funeral Service in Princes Street, Dorchester.

The business continues to be run by his sons, David, Andrew and Peter, the fifth generation of the Grassby family. The business has other funeral branches including Stockting Funeral Service and Rose Funeral Service in Weymouth and Portland, Colin J. Close in Blandford Forum, Potburys Funeral Service in Sidmouth and Hansfords Funeral Service of Beer and Seaton.
