Choosing a Coffin.
Harry Tomes Ltd. was founded by the late Harry Tomes over half a century ago.
He initially started prior to the war, with Taxis, Coaches and Private Hire Cars. When Harry returned from the war, he restarted the business. As Private Hire became busier, more people asked him if he could conduct funerals. So he purchased a hearse and started to offer the funeral services.
Owing to Harry’s warm, caring and trusted personality, the funeral business became busier. In the 1950’s, he diminished the taxi service side, sold the coach business and solely concentrated on the Funeral work.
The business is now owned and run by Harry’s three sons, Trevor, Adrian and Andrew. They carry on the tradition of serving the community, believing in the old values of personal care and attention, that is so very important during the time of loss.
