Meet the Family

Sometimes it helps to be able to put a name to a face – especially if you only get to speak to us on the phone.

Barry & Carole (Mum & Dad) Founders
Barry & Carole founded Dignity in 1992. Sadly Carole passed away in February 2014 after suffering from Alzheimer’s disease for over 6 years. Barry, aged 82, who cared for Carole, passed away peacefully in October 2016 after battling pulmonary fibrosis. Despite his illness Barry continued to help Kevin run Dignity until the very end. It was Barry and Carole’s dedication and love for animals that led them to start Dignity. You can read more about why they started our pet crematorium here

Over the years he has guided Dignity to several national awards for excellence of service and was awarded an Honorary Fellowship of the University of Winchester for the way Dignity is run on an honest and ethical basis. He is also a Director of the Association of Private Pet Cemeteries and Crematoria (APPCC) that strives to set standards and improve the service of pet cemeteries and crematoria in the UK and Europe.
