Bennetts Funeral Directors Open Day Saturday 11th June 2016


Bennetts Essex Funeral Directors have been supporting families with sensitivity and respect for 125 years.  Known for value and trusted for excellence they are opening their doors on Saturday 11 June to mark 125 years serving the community.

The day promises to be far from sombre with Bennetts undertaker services own staff displaying their extra talents with the Mayflower Morris Men dancing with Tony Motley and Jon Lee playing with the Shenfield Bell Ringers.  Other musical interests are Fairlytes Singers and Michael Heaslip on Bagpipes.

The day will start with the Mayor of Brentwood, travelling along the High Street to announce the opening in a horse drawn carriage.  The horses will stay on site during the day, along with a special appearance from Nemo the Unicorn. Bennetts will be launching a new range of vehicles to their existing vintage Rolls Royce and contemporary Mercedes fleet which they are very excited about.
