One of the winners was Horncastle Funeral Home, which was awarded Gold Funeral Branch of the Year for providing consistently high levels of service, showing resilience and thinking of new ideas that have now been implemented in other funeral branches, too. On top of this, it achieved a 100 per cent client recommendation score.

Richard Blackburn, funeral director at Horncastle Funeral Home, said: “It’s absolutely fantastic to have been awarded gold and am thrilled for the team here.

“All the funeral branches work so hard to do a difficult job and to be recognised amongst them is incredible. I would like to thank my amazing colleagues. We’ve built a strong team here in Horncastle through their efforts but have also received valuable support from all the other branches too.

“All the branches pull together to deliver, so a big thank you goes to them too.”
