Kingfisher to open new funeral director’s premises in Huntingdon

Princes StreetIt gives us great pride to announce that we have completed the legalities on the lease of our second premises, 10-10A Princes Street, Huntingdon.

The former stable block forms one side of the Lawrence Court development which houses the registrar, coroner’s office and library. It is a listed building with loads of character, and being old it requires a little attention before we move in. This should take roughly three weeks, and we expect to open after the first bank holiday in May 2014.

Kingfisher Independent Funeral Services has grown as a local business since its conception in October 2010. The company employs three full-time, qualified funeral directors and prides itself on the often-copied but never-bettered level of service it provides to the Huntingdonshire community.

Andrew Hickson, who lives in St Neots and owns the company, said “Kingfisher Funerals are proud to be the only locally-owned, fully independent funeral directors in St Neots. We have found over the last year or so that clients from Huntingdon are using our services more and more, and the next logical step was to open an office in Huntingdon to better serve their needs. Princes Street is a great location for our expanding business, which can now claim to be the only independent funeral director in Huntingdon as well.”

Nicola Jarmaine, who has been with Kingfisher Funerals for just over one year, will become the face of the Huntingdon branch of the business, while Scott Hardiman, who joined the company in May 2013, will be the person most people will meet at the St Neots office. We will, however, continue to be a very close-knit team, covering for each other as and when necessary, and providing the out-of-hours call-out service which is vital to our business.

Kingfisher Independent Funeral Services are proud to be the only locally-owned, fully independent funeral directors in St Neots and Huntingdon. We are recommended locally on The Best of St Neots, and nationally by The Natural Death Centre. Visit our Huntingdon website or our St Neots website, call us on (01480) 471001, or drop in and see us at Gate Lodge, Cemetery Road, St Neots PE19 2BX or at 10-10A Princes Street as soon as we are open! A warm and friendly welcome is assured at any time.
