Carl Kenyon is a well-known Funeral Director in the Chorley area, having joined the family funeral services business back in 1982 when he was just 2
1 years of age. He quickly became a qualified funeral director that same year passing his N.AF.D (National association of Funeral Directors) Diploma.
Carl lives above the business premises with his wife Susan who he married in 1982 the same year as he started in the business.
Living actually on the premises enables Carl to be on hand to meet people and to let them in the Meridian Funeral Home to see their loved ones during the day or evening. This is a service which is really valued and appreciated by bereaved families.
Providing caring funeral services which are valued and respected in the local areas has been the key aim over the many years. Carl Kenyon is, in fact, the 3rd generation of the Kenyon Family business. He worked then with his father Bernard who retired in 1996 but still calls in to see how the business is doing. Having worked in every aspect of the job during his 33 years in the business, Carl now passes his years of experience onto his son Brett. For the last six years, Brett Kenyon has been working in the background, learning the trade and more latterly also meeting families who have been bereaved.
