I opened 'Barry Whalen: Funeral Directors', in July, 2013, taking forward my own personal commitment and passion for the profession, with a view to serving the local community and
Over the past nine years, I have been entrusted by many families, to arrange and conduct the funerals of their loved ones. I am therefore very proud of my personal reputation within the funeral profession and pride myself in providing that personal touch - stretching far beyond the call of
My promise is to provide a twenty-four hour, genuine, caring and professional service, taking care of you and your loved one - with the utmost sincerity, dignity and respect. I will ensure full attention to every detail - reassuring you that all aspects of the funeral arrangements, are in safe hands.
Having achieved an Advanced Diploma in Funeral Directing Certificate, I was accepted into the membership of 'The National Association of Funeral Directors', known within the profession as
The National Association of Funeral Directors was established in 1905 and acts as a
governor to Funeral Directors, such as myself. The National Association of Funeral
Directors, demand high professional standards - and so in order to be accepted and
remain in membership, both me as a funeral director and my funeral home
premises, are assessed against strict criteria. Members of the 'NAFD' are then
required to abide by a stringent Code of Practice and are monitored regularly to
ensure a high quality of service is adhered to and maintained - throughout the Funeral Profession.
Looking back, I often reflect on the many experiences I have gained, throughout my time within the Funeral Profession. Having worked within most communities throughout the Ayrshire and Renfrewshire areas, I can recall the many heartfelt situations in which I have dealt with - at every stage in life. I have therefore no doubt in my mind, that the pain caused by the death of a loved one, is the most traumatic and distressing times in each of our lives.
Whilst I fully appreciate, that the funeral service is an industry that is often placed to the back of people's minds, I can only hope that at some point in the far future, should you ever require the services of a Funeral Director, that you would consider a private, independent company such as myself, committed and dedicated at every stage.
