Mayor to officially open St Margaret’s Hospice’s newest funeral home in Bridgwater

The Mayor of Bridgwater will oversee the official opening of the hospice’s second funeral home in Bridgwater at a special event on Tuesday 14th September. Following the official launch members of the public are warmly invited to attend the event between 12pm and 4pm, where there will be a chance to look around, meet the team and enjoy a cup of tea.

The new home, on Eastover, was opened in November 2020 but due to the Covid-19 restrictions the funeral team have not been able to invite the local community in to meet them.

The building is the second funeral home set up by St Margaret’s Hospice Care as an extension of the care and compassion that the hospice gives to people across Somerset.  St Margaret’s Funerals already has an existing funeral home in Bridge Street in Taunton. The service provides funerals for everyone in the community, while supporting St Margaret’s Hospice Care.

Julie Lacey, heads up the team consisting of Funeral Administrator, Terena Gill, and Assistant Funeral Director, Chris Jones. Both Terena and Chris are local to the Bridgwater area and come with a wealth of local knowledge as well as lauding the ethos of the hospice and sharing their vision for the future.

Julie said: “We are delighted to be offering our services to the Bridgwater community. We are looking forward to meeting people and explaining that an individual and unique funeral does not have to be expensive.

“I believe that the dedication and personal touches that our professional team bring to every funeral, make it special to every family that we care for. Understanding the needs of our families is important to us and it is our passion to make the funeral arrangements as easy as possible at such a distressing time.”
