The Hunnaball Family Funeral Group is exactly that, an independent, family-run business. We also have an expanding work family, and are often looking for new members. Caring for the deceased, and their bereaved families and friends, takes a special kind of person, so our team is made up of exceptional, compassionate people. As a result, it’s a great place to work.

Can you see yourself as part of a dedicated team that ensures that each funeral is conducted without a hitch, and with the utmost dignity and compassion? Can you offer hard work, dedication, commitment, efficiency, maturity, and empathy for your clients?

Then we would love to meet you.
