  • HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY INSPIRATIONAL FRIEND.

    I lost a much-loved friend, suddenly in 2019. Today on Wednesday 19th July 2023, he would have been celebrating his 50th birthday. He was stung by a hornet and had a catastrophic allergic reaction. For a week he was kept alive by machines in hospital, but sadly his family had to take the decision to…
  • From dinosaurs & entreprenuers to coffins & care.

    Back in 2015, my day job involved moving dinosaurs setting up an Virgin entrepreneur event in Birmingham. I loved the buzz of that job, meeting passionate people starting businesses and hearing success stories from those that had already achieved much – Richard Branson,  the founders of Not on The High St, Jack Wills, Innocent and…

  • White Feather now under sole ownership

    After a rewarding 3 years, in February 2023, Lucy Atabey became the sole owner of White Feather Funerals. There will be no change to the level of service that clients of White Feather have come to expect and Lucy looks forward to continuing to work closely with local families to create the perfect funeral for…
  • Caring for your loved one

    We understand how difficult it can be to let go, once someone you loved has died. That’s why we try to be there, if we can, with our team, when it comes to the time to take them into our care. And once they are in our care in our private mortuary at our Heathfield…

  • His last act of kindness

    Over 13.6 million people watched The Duke Of Edinburgh, Prince Phillip’s funeral. It was widely agreed that is was a beautiful, poignant and elegant service with very little fuss, befitting the Prince who hated any ‘faff’. From the Land Rover hearse he specifically designed for purpose to the carefully chosen readings, hymns and music, this…

  • A personalised funeral that isn’t limited to a time slot

    Did you know that a funeral can literally be held anywhere? Unlike weddings, venues do not need to be licensed for funerals. A service in a church or a crematorium is generally limited to 45-60 mins. After the service mourners have to travel to another venue for the wake. There is a simple way to…

  • Did you know 100% of people die?!

    We don’t mean to make light of death, but there is literally no escaping it and leaving your family to second guess what you might have wanted after you have gone is hardly fair. Parental responsibility should extend to making sure your children aren’t left struggling to pay for your funeral. Money held in a…

  • Environmentally friendly funerals

    There is much more concern these days for us to be more aware of how our behaviour affects the planet. We need to apply this to funerals too. It is somewhat puzzling that families would want to spend a fortune on a coffin for it to be put in the ground or burnt. That’s why…

    Losing someone you love can shatter your world. Your loss can feel overwhelming. There are so many decisions to make. It can be hard to know where to start. That’s why we created the step by step guide (overleaf) on what you need to do and when. We’ll do everything we can to help you…
