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, 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
