“A Family run service from the Heart”

Pet Undertakers was established in 2008 by Alan Knowlton after having to make the difficult decision to have one of his dogs put to sleep.

Whilst he was given various options about what he would like to do with the remains, he found himself wondering if there was a better way.

He felt passionate about giving those who had lost a loyal and much-loved family member a unique and dignified service.

For 9 years he worked alongside his son-in-law, Mark, providing comfort to families all over the South coast.

In August 2016, Alan felt the time was right to retire and left the business in the capable hands of Sharon, his daughter, and her husband Mark.

Being huge animal lovers themselves, they have juggled 7 dogs, 4 cats, a tortoise, an African Grey parrot and an albino toad whilst running their own successful Funeral Directors.

M Johnson Independent Family Funeral Directors began trading in 2008 and the company has gone from strength to strength.

The secret, they say, is that they pride themselves on understanding each family’s individual needs.
