John Burrows & Sons
J Tandy - Independent Family Funeral Directors
We were established in 1878 in Lymm by my
great grandfather John Burrows.
As was common at the time in small villages, funeral directors often had a second occupation.
John was a wheelwright, blacksmith
as well as undertaker.
His sons followed him into those professions and Bill, my grandfather, was a proud member of both the National Association of Funeral Directors
and the Master Farriers Association.
My dad, Mike Tandy married into the family
and joined Bill in 1970, and carried on grandad's
friendly approach to helping families.
I became the fourth generation of
funeral director in our family when I followed
dad into the business, over 20 years ago.
As a family, we are very proud of our
almost 140 years of being of help to other
families in Lymm and beyond.
