  1. Good evening

    We are a funeral company based in Somerset and Devon and have been looking into utilising the kick start scheme to increase our staffing numbers over what could a very busy period for us
    We had looked into using the scheme put together by a funeral trade association yet communication has stopped so we are looking at other options
    We would be looking at hiring up to 6 people for our 3 branches
    Any information would be great
