Next-Generation Join G Wathall & Son


The sixth generation of family-owned funeral directors G Wathall & Son have joined the Bondholder business in key roles.

Bec and Charlotte Wathall have joined the business - working alongside their mother and company managing director Helen Wathall.

Bec, who has joined as Helen's personal assistant, said: “This is an exciting time to be joining the business and I am particularly enjoying taking the lead on updating our technology to modernise the way we do things and being involved in our expansion and re-branding at the new branches.

“There is an element of pressure and expectation on us as the latest generation to join the business but we are keen to embrace the historical values that G. Wathall & Son are so highly regarded for whilst ensuring that we look to the future.”

Helen concluded: “I am delighted that both Bec and Charlotte have decided to join us at G Wathall & Son to help take the business forward.

“We are extremely proud of our heritage as a family-owned business and it is wonderful that the next generation see their future in this profession.

“I know that my father Bill would have been particularly proud of them both and in seeing that the traditional values, coupled with ambitions to modernise our operations to reflect customers’ wishes, will be developed in future years.”
