“I started working in the industry in 1987. I wanted the opportunity to work outside and to learn new skills like digging graves, using the cremator and undertaking. From there I excelled in all aspects of cemetery services and loved working at the cemetery. I am passionate about my job, because I feel I can help the families in their time of need and I will do everything in my power to make sure their funeral service goes the way they plan it. I love helping people.”
Stephen Stewart, Cemetery Manager, Western Region

“I love applying my commercial experience to a not for profit role. I am passionate about finding new and helpful ways of communicating with our families and building strong relationships with our funeral directors and communities within which we work.”
Jo Davenport, Marketing
