Anna joined MW Funeral Directors in June 2021. Having had many years of leadership experience in the hospitality sector, followed by a period at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, Anna was drawn at the start of the COVID pandemic to serving the bereaved. Helping families, Anna says, is fulfilling.
Following training and some months experience arranging funerals in Bristol Anna visited Memorial Woodlands several times and loved the ethos and tranquility. She believes the nature reserve being created with its environmental and sustainable goals are very important.
“I want to ensure that all the families I serve are well looked after and are able to say farewell to their loved ones in a manner that’s most fitting for them.”
At home Anna and her family enjoy walking their greyhound, live music and geocaching.
