Brand new venture for SAIF Member Bowley & GallagherJune 1, 2016 // No Comments
With a wealth of experience and excellent reputations for compassion and professionalism, it’s no surprise that two of our most respected and successful family-owned businesses, Bowley Funeral Services and P&S Gallagher, have joined forces for an impressive new venture in Brighton. While both firms are keen to assure clients that their other local businesses will continue as normal, the two companies have long enjoyed a relationship as business partners and their new office located in Preston Road, Brighton is a natural extension of their continued success and growth.
“We’ve got a mission with our new office,” explains Matthew Gallagher. “There are hardly any independent funeral directors left in Brighton and we wanted to reverse that and bring all the benefits of independence to the local community.”
Paul Bowley grew up in Brighton, while Matthew studied and now lives there and this local knowledge, along with their personal and flexible service offers clients real advantages. “We answer our own phones, we have no shareholders to please, or specified suppliers we have to use, so our prices are competitive. Our sole aim is to create the right funeral for the person who has died and the loved ones left behind,” says Matthew.
The new office in Brighton reflects this new openness with a bright and welcoming ambience. Along with state of the art facilities and equipment, the offices will also act as a training centre for funeral directors across the South East, along with those working in the local caring community. Matthew is a national verifier for the Independent Funeral Directors College and relishes the opportunity to nurture new talent and raise standards within the profession.
