Pre-owned fleet for Radcliffe Funeral Service 

Our photos show (Back Row, L-R) Andrew, Gwen, Richard and Julie Schofield taking delivery of a pre-owned Mercedes Fleet from Wilcox Limousines Ltd.  Also in the photo are Gwen’s Mum and Andrew and Richard’s Mum who were invited along to witness a special day for the family business. 

Radcliffe Funeral Service was established in 1964 by Gwen’s Father, Brian Radcliffe.  The business is based in Honley, West Yorkshire.   Gwen joined the business in 1976 and quickly qualified as an embalmer and passed her Dip FD.  In 2013 Gwen was awarded Fellowship of the British Institute of Embalmers and is currently the National President.

Gwen’s husband Andrew joined the business in 2009 having purchased further premises in Kirkheaton and 3 years later he also attained his Dip FD.  They are also members of the BIFD, NAFD and SAIF.

Having hired vehicles for a long time, consideration was given to obtaining their own.  Andrew’s brother, Richard, wanted a change of career and offered to purchase a fleet with a view to not only supplying to Gwen and Andrew but to also hire elsewhere. Richard and Julie set up their business as R J Carriages.  Richard and his wife Julie were delighted with the vehicles which are already in regular use and on hire.

Wilcox Limousines Ltd would like to thank Gwen, Andrew, Richard and Julie for their custom and wish them every success with their new fleet.
