Julianne Lockhart

Administration and Customer Service Consultant

Working at H Parsons is a privilege I get to share with the families and friends of those that we care for. It is a place where I am able to assist our lovely clientele through the initial grieving stages of losing their loved ones.

This is a special privilege that I acknowledge not everyone gets to partake in when celebrating the life of a loved one.

 

I am the shoulder to cry on, the listening ear, and the support when people are at their most vulnerable.

Funeral Director

I find it a privilege to help a family when they are at their most vulnerable. The loss of a loved one is both distressing and confusing.

 

To make the process of organising a funeral easier when emotions are at their most heightened is my priority.

 

To help a family say goodbye whilst celebrating the life of their loved one is personally very satisfying.

I look on my position as a Funeral Director as a gift.
