Forty years of family heritage connects Liveseys and Coleman Milne

Livesey Funeral Services of Horwich, near Bolton has recently invested in a pre-owned hearse from trusted local specialists Coleman Milne Ltd. Their new Mercedes E Class Hearse is the latest in a series of funeral vehicles supplied by Coleman Milne to the family business, fostering a relationship which extends over many years.
Tradition lies at the very heart of Livesey Funeral Services, located in Horwich near Bolton. Founded in 1848, the family owned and managed business has been nurtured by six generations and has long been a well-respected establishment serving the local community. The decision to choose Coleman Milne as the supplier stems from the consistently high quality customer service experienced by Liveseys over many years. Martyn Finch, of Liveseys Funeral Services said, “We are proud of the long tradition we share working with Coleman Milne. We choose their vehicles because we believe they are the very best and the fact that Coleman Milne are another, long-established local company means we share the same values. We particularly like the way they look after us in the same way we look after our own customers. Long may this association continue.”
Martyn is pictured outside his premises taking delivery of the new hearse from Graham Clow, Area Sales Manager of Coleman Milne, echoing the scene forty years earlier when his father-in-law, Mr. Eric Livesey was pictured accepting the keys for his new Ford Zephyr Zodiac hearse outside the same premises in 1972. It just goes to show that while fashions may fade and technology relentlessly marches on, traditions such as brand loyalty and customer service not only continue but, reassuringly, endure.
