Simon 40th Work anniversary 270416

Simon Jupp being presented a plaque for 40 years service by James Whittle and Richard Whittle (Great Grandson and Great Great Grandson of the founder)

This week we have been celebrating the long service of Simon Jupp who is one our part time Funeral Assistants.  Simon has worked with us for 40 years and started in 1976 when he was 18.

Simon is now the 3rd longest serving employee in the history of the firm having overtaken his brother in law Rupert Bungard (who is the grandson of the founder) several years ago. James Whittle is second having been with the firm for 44 years. James retired in 2012 but is still involved as company director. The current longest serving is Hervey Bungard (Rupert’s father) who joined in 1922 and retired in 1971 and working for 49 years.

We would like to congratulate Simon again on a fantastic achievement. We know how proud he is of his work. Congratulations Simon.
