About Gillman Funeral Service
At Gillman Funeral Service, we have been helping local families at one of the most difficult times since 1880. The business that became Gillman Funeral Service was founded by Mr Henry Ingram at Goldsworth Road.
We are proud to serve the people in those communities of many different cultures and faiths, as well as those with no religious beliefs.
We bring empathy and experience to support you in planning your loved one’s funeral and fulfilling your wishes to the best of our ability.
Our experienced and caring staff will advise and support you at every stage of the funeral planning process, with a wide range of funeral options and transparent pricing.
Here at Gillman Funeral Service we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.
If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.
Meet the Team
Branch Development Manager
As a mother of five and grandmother of eight I dedicated most of my life to raising my children and grandchildren maintaining my focus on my family.
In doing so I found a passion for event organising, including charity and non-profit events, religious and family occasions and parties that catered to specific requirements.
Raising a family wasn’t all parties and I was no stranger to the heartache of losing loved ones. Its these personal experiences that drew me to join Cruse 18 years ago as a bereavement counsellor and I very quickly realised that this was something that came naturally to me.
Drawing on my passion for organising, empathetic nature and family-orientation I feel that in my role as a Funeral Arranger I was doing something that not only allowed me to support individuals and families when they need it, but also to reach out to my community raising money and more importantly an awareness for a number of groups and charities.
Since becoming a BDM I have carried my experience through and hopefully now can guide and nurture other arrangers and help them build up their Branches and Brands to be an essential part of the communities that they are in. Whilst ensuring our best practice is always at the forefront.
