As Kevin adds, “It is a pleasure work for a business that truly cares about what they do and for me to be able to make a difference to those people whom I come into contact with at their time of need. This award really means a lot to me and it is great to work for a firm that values your contribution.”
As Joseph concludes, “Kevin is a valued member of the G. Seller family and it is a pleasure to recognise his contribution in this way. He is a real asset to our business and we look forward to working with him for many more years to come.”

Alison Wormleighton is the newest addition to the G. Seller family and will be providing more support for people when they need it most.
Alison is joining the team as part of the Bereavement Support service that is being put together.
The Bereavement Support programme has been launched as a service to the community, making sure that there is support and care for families following the funeral.
As Joseph Barsby, the third generation of the family to lead the business explains, “We are truly passionate about what we do and have always gone the extra mile to support the families that we have the privilege to look after when they need it most. Our team are fantastic and are always going the extra step to support families and individuals but we recognise that there is more support needed following the following, especially in readjusting after the loss of someone close.”
A range of services is now available including 1-1 support for individuals providing a safe confidential space to explore difficult thoughts and emotions around their grief, bereavement groups bringing people together to recognise that they are not alone, share their experience, possibly learn from others and face their grief at a pace which feels right for them and a monthly social coffee morning which will be informal, giving everyone the opportunity to have a ‘cuppa and a chat.’
As Alison concludes, “Adjusting to life after losing someone close can be very daunting but we are passionate about providing the local community with the much needed care and support during this difficult time. I am looking forward to the new role within a family firm that clearly places family at the very heart of what they do, taking the time to support individuals when they need it most.”
