TWO employees at a Keighley funeral directors are being celebrated for their achievements.

Simon Wheeler and Suzanne Bairstow have been awarded the Diploma in Funeral Arranging and Administration.

They received their accolades, from the National Association of Funeral Directors, at a presentation ceremony in Hinckley, Leicestershire.

The duo – of David Gallagher Funeral Directors – will now study for the association’s Diploma in Funeral Directing.

Suzanne joined the business in 2016 as office co-ordinator, but also moved into the funeral directing side – recently becoming an assistant funeral director – and combines the roles.

Simon joined the firm the same year, as an assistant funeral director. He cares for the deceased and works closely with families.

Director, Adele Gallagher, said: “We are extremely proud of their dedication to the business and are pleased to be funding and supporting them with their ongoing qualifications.”
