Welcome to New SAIF Members in AugustAugust 20, 2014 // No Comments
SAIF is delighted to welcome two new companies accepted into membership this summer.
George Brooke Ltd, Dewsbury
In 1945 George Brooke began his apprenticeship as a joiner with Walter West Joiners & Undertakers before starting his own Company. George’s wife, Audrey worked from home providing the back up – ‘manning’ the phone, typing the necessary documents and baking for the funeral teas. George worked all the hours he could, to be able to afford to buy and build the Chapel of Rest at Battye Street, which was the first privately owned Chapel of Rest in Dewsbury. Over the years George also took over the business of Lewis Brook and by goodwill, that of F.W Tong, giving the business a history of over 150 years. His family have also joined the firm- Neil in 1976, Helen in 1982 and Judith in 1987. The business now has one of the most modern fleet of limousines and can offer one of the most caring services to the community. Sadly George passed away in April 2008, aged 76 years. His three children have continued to run the business which has now grown to be one of the largest independent Funeral Directors in the area.
