A Warm Welcome from David and Gill Pope of Lytham Funeral Service

When contacting Lytham Funeral Service you can be totally reassured of dealing with fully qualified professionals who are experienced and sensitive to your needs at such a difficult time in your lives.

Lytham Funeral Service was founded by David Pope in 2010 after working for Maurice Rawcliffe Funeral Director for almost 20 years.

David decided that after many years of only having one choice of Funeral Service in the town it was time for a more modern, personal and bespoke service.

So, Lytham Funeral Service opened its doors on Clifton Street, right in the heart of the community. David is now proud to be offering the community of Lytham a quality bespoke funeral service in a caring dignified manner which respects all faiths and traditions.
