Neville Funerals, one of the region’s longest standing family owned businesses with branches across Bedfordshire,
Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire; has promoted Charmian Alexander to the role of Director.
Charmian joined the company; which has its head office in Luton, as General Manager just 12 months ago. With more than 20 years’ experience in the funeral sector, she has been instrumental in supporting the growth and development of the business. Her clear understanding of the varied and complex needs of a family-run funeral service provider has seen her quickly rise to her new position which is effective immediately.
Vicky Trumper, Director of Neville Funerals commented: “Charmian has been a significant addition to the Neville Funerals team and her drive and expertise has been invaluable over the last year, as we undertook an extensive company rebrand and expanded our services across the region.
“Now, Charmian’s guidance is vital as we navigate these uncertain times and look to keep our teams safe and well, as their support for those in our communities that have lost loved ones has never been so important.”
In her new role, Charmian will continue to work alongside the senior leadership team to drive the strategic direction of the business and support the company’s eight branches in delivering services locally. She commented, “Neville Funerals is a very close-knit team of highly skilled, dedicated people and I feel extremely proud to be part of such a company.
“At times such as these we are ever mindful of the difficulties faced by many in our region. This includes those that are bereaved and needing extra support to plan for funerals, which are always intended to be a celebration of a life lived but which now have to be ceremonies limited to small, close family groups. We must do what we can to help and guide and reassure.”
Neville Funerals is an independent family company which has been serving the community in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire and the surrounding areas for more than 140 years. For more information about the services offered by the business, visit www.nevillefuneralservice.com.
