About Isobel Whittaker Funeral Services

About Our Funeral Director Izzy!

Hello everyone, 

I am Isobel but everyone calls me Izzy! I am the Funeral Director here at Isobel Whittaker Funeral Services, as well as jointly owning the company with my husband, James.

I’ve been in this industry since I left college; starting off my journey with a family-run, independent funeral home who gave me the opportunity to learn and helped me to find a full-time job. I then moved to a large funeral home where I started as an administrator then as an operative then a funeral director. Moving through different positions has given me valuable experience with all aspects of funeral arranging.

Our Funeral Director Isobel

My time working for these other companies has proved that this is not just a job for me – it is a privilege and an honour to care for every family that comes to me in their time of need. As a funeral director, the most important thing to me is being there for every family every step of the way. From bringing their loved one into my care and arranging the funeral service, to interring ashes and arranging memorials. Any stress I can take off your shoulders, I am more than happy to do so! 

In the time I have been working in the funeral industry, I have taken care of families of different faiths, beliefs and traditions and they have taught me so much and opened my mind to different ways of thinking. Here at Isobel Whittaker Funeral Services we value diversity and everyone is treated with the same level of respect and dignity. 

Our phone line (01785 336722) is open 24 hours a day everyday for call outs and advice. 

Why choose a local independent funeral director?

As a local independent Funeral Director, we are truly here to help you. We don’t have lots of shareholders to please nor do we have a head office in a faraway place telling us what we can and can’t do. This allows us to provide exactly the options we believe are best for our families while providing true value for money.

During her time in the industry Isobel has worked for larger companies and set up Isobel Whittaker Funeral Services with her husband to provide that truly personal service and allow her to invest in the best possible care for the families we serve.
