Ivor Thomas Funerals was the idea of Mark Ivor whilst working at Cardiff Bereavement Services. When he saw some of the prices and practices of the funeral industry, he believed that there was a niche in the market for a funeral service with the ethos of providing a cost effective funeral service, which still centres itself around the family in need.
He was also told to only go into business with people you trust, so the only person he wanted to pitch his idea to was his recently retired father Ivor Neil, as not only do they share the same ideology of family needs coming first, but Mark also knew that Neil would put his heart and soul into it.
The company started in January 2019 and was christened ‘Ivor Thomas Funerals’ to honour both their names. Since then, the whole family have become involved and we’ve even had several ‘adoptions’ into our Ivor Thomas Funerals family. Please see a little introduction to everyone below.
