John was born in Cheslyn Hay and grew up in Burntwood where he attended Chase Terrace High School.

John first became interested in the funeral profession after his Grandfather passed away in 1994,  that same year John completed his work experience at the same funeral directors that had cared for his Grandfather, John’s caring and compassionate nature along with his ability to put those he meets at ease fitted well with the role of a Funeral Director and John soon realised this was a profession he wished to work in when he left school.

Nearly 22 years later John achieved his dream of opening his own Funeral Directors alongside Mother Jennifer.

In John’s personal life he is an active member of his local church, enjoys spending time with his own family and likes to travel when he can.
