-Fate played a part in the process

-of starting the funeral business.

0:00:150:00:21

-It was after my gran's funeral,

-which was a bit of a shambles.

0:00:210:00:25

-We decided that we could do

-a better job than they did that day.

0:00:250:00:31

-I'd be lying to you...

0:00:370:00:39

-..if I said that everything

-has always gone as it should.

0:00:390:00:43

-Our hearse has broken down.

0:00:430:00:45

-On one occasion.

0:00:460:00:47

-It has failed to start once.

0:00:470:00:49

-But that's nothing compared

-to some stories we've heard.

0:00:510:00:56

-That's what keeps us going, I think.

0:00:560:01:00

-Coffins lowered into

-graves that are too narrow.

0:01:000:01:03

-Coffin handles

-not being screwed on properly...

0:01:030:01:09

-..so that when the bearers

-lift them...

0:01:090:01:12

-..the coffin falls off

-onto the road.

0:01:120:01:15

-I take great comfort that it's only

-our hearse that's broken down.

0:01:150:01:20

-I believe that when we go

-to a grieving household...

0:01:310:01:34

-..we should be sensitive...

0:01:340:01:38

-..but we should also be practical

-and professional.

0:01:380:01:41

-I know of people who have done this

-work and who still do it, in fact...

0:01:420:01:46

-..who go to a house in mourning

-and cry with the family.

0:01:460:01:50

-We have to be sensitive

-to their grief...

0:01:500:01:53

-..but we also have to be

-slightly detached.

0:01:530:01:57

-We can't be of any help to them

-if we're crying as well.

0:01:570:02:01

-We have to be strong.

-We have to support them.

0:02:010:02:05

-There's no point having a houseful

-of crying people...

0:02:050:02:09

-..which includes the undertaker.

0:02:090:02:11

-This job offers a new challenge

-each time.

0:02:170:02:22

-As there is no textbook

-for this type of work...

0:02:240:02:27

-..I think that makes the challenge

-all the greater.

0:02:270:02:30

-You cannot take anything

-for granted.

0:02:300:02:33

-I've learned over the years...

0:02:330:02:35

-..that the best tool a good

-undertaker has is his ears.

0:02:360:02:40

-You have to be willing to listen.

0:02:410:02:43

-I don't believe in spirits.

0:02:510:02:53

-Many people's faith carries them

-through the grieving process.

0:02:540:02:59

-I respect every individual's

-opinion...

0:02:590:03:02

-..whether they're religious or not.

0:03:020:03:06

-We have to respect

-everyone's standpoint.
