How We’re Different

Kingfisher Independent Funeral Services is owned and managed by Andrew Hickson, who lives in St Neots and has more than 25 years experience of the funeral profession. Our very able full-time funeral directors are Scott Hardiman, Philip Reynolds and Nick Gellatly. Andrew, Scott and Phil all hold the Diploma in Funeral Directing (Dip.FD) and we all take complete responsibility for our own clients, whilst ensuring that we support each other.

We consider that the celebrants we work with for the majority of the funerals we conduct are absolutely vital to the service we provide. Nicki Hallett and Lorraine Inglis are both qualified and experienced civil funeral celebrants who will work with you to create a unique and memorable funeral ceremony. Nicki and Lorraine provide office cover for us on occasions, so you may meet them in more than one capacity.

Our strength is in our very small size, which enables us to focus entirely on our clients and to offer a completely unique personal service.

We approach our profession from a non-commercial perspective. We do not sell inflexible packages. Even our fixed-price funerals, which we provide to allow you to budget without any worry, are completely personal and very flexible. We listen to the needs of our clients, and tailor our service to their exact requirements.

Unlike any of the other funeral directors in St Neots and Huntingdon, we are not part of any group. We are an entirely independent company, which means that all decisions are made at a local level. We are not bound by corporate rules and the constant demands from distant directors to increase profits. Find out who’s who in our towns.

We support local charities and organisations, and use local suppliers and businesses wherever possible. We care about our environment, and encourage a green and eco-friendly approach to funerals.
