Hand in Hand Funerals is a modern funeral directing service, incorporating expert end of life care and bereavement support. Founder Kerry Aldridge refers to herself as a holistic funeral director, as it is her aim to provide individuals and families with a proliferation of care at each stage of their end of life journey. Kerry’s unique approach to her funeral business that centres on her client’s emotional health and wellbeing means she is happy to respond to whoever is interested in her services, wherever they are in the country. Her focus is on bringing about a positive change to an industry which has barely evolved over 100 years.
After experiencing a number of funerals, it struck Kerry that they offered little to no choice in relation to available packages and the day itself always seemed to be a grim and sombre affair. Through Kerry’s unwavering commitment to rectify this abdication of responsibility, which included extensive additional training and networking to enlist the input of other experts, she set about providing a truly holistic approach to the symptoms of loss. Her passion to transform the industry includes care and support from the point of diagnosis of a life limiting illness, through the dying process, after death, every step of the funeral, as well as subsequent bereavement support.
