Funeral directors in West Mersea

Established by John K. May in 1980, JK May of West Mersea has served the community for more than 40 years. John himself was the Island’s funeral director for over 35 years and will always be remembered fondly. The Hunnaball family has continued its fine traditions since JK May became part of The Hunnaball Family Funeral Group as long ago as 1988, and it is still run by the family today. The team is led by Joe Garwood and his wife, Polly Hunnaball, who are very much part of the island community.
