About us

About W. Storey Funeral Service

My grandfather, William Storey served his apprenticeship with J.J. Pybus Joiners and Undertakers in Westgate Guisborough. In 1927 he left J.J. Pybus to start his own business as a Joiner, Wheelwright and Undertaker in premises at the rear of Bennison Street, Guisborough. In 1934 he moved to 18 - 20 Redcar Road, Guisborough which became the family home and business premises.

On leaving school in 1946, my father John joined the business, followed by my uncle Peter in 1957. In 1969 Grandad retired leaving Dad and Peter running the business as Joiners, Undertakers and Property Repairers.

I joined the business when I left school in 1969 and in 1984 both Dad and I gained our Diplomas in Funeral Directing. The business carried on in its original format until 1990 when we ceased general work and concentrated solely on the Funeral Service, Peter having left the business in 1985 to continue on his own as a joiner and property repairer.

In 1999 Dad retired leaving me to continue, with the assistance of my wife Sharon. That same year our son John joined us, becoming the fourth generation of the family to become involved.

Over the years many improvements have been made to the premises, creating dignified surroundings including pleasant reception areas, comfortable arranging rooms, private chapels of rest, and up to date mortuary facilities, yet still retaining a peaceful, homely atmosphere.

As local independent family funeral directors we are very proud of our long and outstanding reputation in providing at all times a sympathetic service with personal continuity of care.
