FUNERAL parlour Claridge Funeral Service is hosting an open day on Saturday September 16 to demystify the funeral process.

New owner Daniel Claridge realised that losing a loved one and coping with funeral arrangements can be a daunting task and so decided to open his doors to the public.

Mr Claridge has been in the business since he was just 13 and ever since has dreamed of opening his own shop in his home town of Marlborough.

He said: "I have been waiting for the perfect premises and when this came up, we jumped at the opportunity. It is all coming together now.

"It can be a very daunting time for families so we hope to make it as stress free for them as possible."

The 28 year old will be at the Claridge Funeral Service shop between 11-5pm tomorrow to give tours of the newly renovated services.

The funeral parlour can be found on The Parade Mews off Marlborough High Street.
