At H. Porter & Sons, we’re always keen to demonstrate best practice and high standards.

With that in mind, this year we decided to participate in The Parliamentary Review, an annual celebration of business leadership and innovation which provides a useful guide to industry trends for policymakers.

The Review talks about how H. Porter & Sons have evolved over 175 years and how we’re supporting bereaved families in this period of change for the funeral profession.

For example, we feel it’s important that families are in control of a funeral and one of the ways we do this is by making people fully aware of a wide range of options.

On top of this, we actively get involved in the community as part of an ongoing initiative called Dying Matters Dudley, to encourage people to talk about the difficult subject of death and dying.

We also adhere to high standards throughout the business, both front of house and back, as part of a long-standing commitment to providing the very best in funeral care.

We marked our involvement in the 2019 Parliamentary Review at a special launch gala at Mansion House in London, the official residence of the Lord Mayor of London, on Wednesday, September 11.

It was a real privilege to attend and listen to guest speakers like former Economic Secretary to the Treasury Ed Balls and radio presenter Julia Hartley-Brewer who talked about the important work of businesses the length and breadth of the country.
