Symon Tranter, Managing Director, would like to thank both customers and the team at Evans & Tranter for their patience and support during this challenging time. Symon stated “The conversion has taken over 6 months and has challenged our staff and loyal customers and even included a period where we had to close the offices completely. We are now very much open for business and able to offer bereaved families some of the finest facilities in Shropshire. As well as looking after families in their time of need, we are also able to provide a full range of Memorials and advice on pre-arranging and pre-paying for your funeral in advance. Our offices at 130-130a High street are open Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 5.00pm so for further advise on the above services or to simply have a look around, please phone 01952 820292 or call in where myself, Julie or Claire will be pleased to help.”
