James Brown & Sons, the name synonymous with arranging family funerals in Belfast since 1904, has expanded to South Belfast and Dunmurry by integrating with Funeral Partners, the third largest funeral business in the UK.
Speaking about the expansion of the business to include the arrival of James Brown & Sons to South Belfast and Dunmurry, James Brown MBE, third generation of James Brown & Sons, said: “I’ve been helping and caring for families for more than 60 years so I am helping the dedicated staff at Knockbreda Road and Dunmurry to build the James Brown & Sons brand while continuing to care for families in the local area who may be facing one of the most difficult times in their lives.
“I have been greatly encouraged by Funeral Partners willingness to engage with the businesses here in Northern Ireland and I believe that, with this change of ownership, the service provided to the bereaved will be enhanced when people are preparing to say farewell in the most dignified way possible.”
With a more than 100 year heritage, James Brown & Sons at Knockbreda Road, Belfast, and James Brown & Sons, Dunmurry, join the James Brown & Sons portfolio at Newtownards Road, Belfast; Lisburn Road, Belfast; and Upper Newtownards Road, Dundonald.
