Our family has been involved in some form in the profession of funeral directing or undertaking, in mid-cork, since 1843, when the family moved to Macroom from Kilmurry Lissarda. We are now in our eighth generation. It is a profession passed down to me, and I have had the honour of passing this profession to my own son Bill. Watching my parents & Grandfather, I saw the meaning of what undertakers do change. From something done for the deceased, to something done for the living, by the living - all of us. Thus our team is both organised & experienced, focused in one simple belief - "dignity in all matters".
On this webpage are some pictures & impression's of family members for more than 200 years, including my Grandfather John. Amongst those who had a huge influence upon me was Con "knocky" Cronin, and although deceased, he is still remembered throughout the area.
We like to think that our family provides a dignified service to other families. Organising the funeral of a loved one is an extremely traumatic time. There are many choices to be made & often it is easier to make them at your own convenience. On this website is a booklet for safe-keeping outlining the various options & choices, should you wish to avail of it.
