Anthony J. T. Foster
Hello, my name is Tony Foster, I am the founder of Fosters Funeral Directors – The Independent Family Funeral Directors Ltd.
I have a great passion to help people, I love my profession. Families entrust their loved ones within the care of my company and that task I do not take lightly. I have managed over the years to build a team of people who have the same ethos as I do and with this team we have created one of the largest independently owned funeral directors in the United Kingdom.
My goal has always been to provide the highest possible service at the least amount of money anywhere within this industry. If I can offer any help or you would wish to email me please contact me at [email protected]
Senior Funeral Director
My name is Billy Morris and I am the senior funeral director at our Cumnock & Mauchline branches of Fosters.
I entered the funeral profession in 1995, originally with Brian Allan Whyte Funeral Directors, where I started as a funeral director. Over the years I gained a wealth of life experience within the company, eventually becoming a senior funeral director.
Our aim is to provide a personal, professional and compassionate service to families at their time of need.
FUNERAL DIRECTOR / EMBALMER
My name is Terry Buchan. I started employment in the funeral industry in 2006 as a funeral operative for Dundas Fyfe Funeral Directors, my role there involved chauffeur driving limousines for funerals, and general workshop duties. In 2010 I enrolled with William Purves embalming academy, where I completed the course in embalming. Over the 3 years since then I have worked in the mortuary, taking care of hygienic treatments and preparing your loved ones for viewings and for their final journey. In 2013 I joined Fosters Funeral Directors as a funeral director, coming here mainly because they are an independent family funeral directors.
My intentions are to provide a professional and compassionate service so that you and your loved ones’ wishes are carried out.
When am out of work I spend time with my wife Lisa and 4 children. Nico, Nathan, Keanna and Jack and our family dog Kira.
My name is Phil. I entered the funeral profession after many years in the army. I feel my army training transfers well to the funeral industry, where the utmost respect and attention to detail are paramount.
I assist my work colleagues in ensuring that the funeral planning details are taken care of in the days leading up to a funeral taking place. This can include collection of deceased, ensuring the necessary paperwork is submitted or collecting orders of service. Working on the day of a funeral, either driving the hearse or limousine is also a big part of my role here at Fosters.
My aim is to ensure all preparation prior to funerals is carried out precisely and on the day of the service for funerals to run faultlessly every time.
