Funeral Arranger

Hi, my name is Julie and I live with my fiance Mark and our two children Brooke and Brody.  I joined Fosters Funeral Directors in 2018 after working with East Ayrshire Council for 16 years.  My post in East Ayrshire Council, Bereavement Services, highlighted that I was interested in getting into the funeral industry.  My role with Fosters as a Funeral Arranger is to help families ensure their loved ones wishes are carried out at a time when they need help, support and guidance.  I carry out their wishes with a caring, professional manner and treat families as I would want my own to be treated at a difficult time.

Phil Stevenson

Phil Stevenson

Chauffeur Driver

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.
