Our family taking care of your family

Meet our Family



Stephen Alderson and John Horan are brothers-in-law who set up this family business in 2004 and remain completely committed to quality and service.

Stephen and John have more than 40 years’ experience in all aspects of the funeral industry. They worked together at a local funeral company for many years, until it was taken over by a much larger company – which didn’t fit with their idea of the personal service that they felt families should be offered.

The business has grown steadily year on year, and there is now a team of nine regular staff. Five are direct family and four are extended family members, along with several drivers.

Here at Alderson and Horan, family values are very important to us. We feel that the families we deal with – at their most difficult time – appreciate the warm, heartfelt and friendly service and atmosphere we offer. We’ve been told it gives them the confidence they need, to trust in someone to carry out such important tasks at this upsetting time.
