News: Funeral director eyes up village location to be nearer to new crematorium

Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…

A 55-year-old firm of funeral directors wants to expand into a former Post Office to be nearer a new crematorium.

Gainsborough-based Bradley & Sons Funeral Directors has applied for planning permission to open premises in High Street, Saxilby.

The plan is to create a funeral parlour on the ground floor and provide staff accommodation upstairs.

The premises would be closer to the new £6m Lea Fields Crematorium set to open in Lea in January 2020 than the facility in Lincoln.

Carlton Bradley, senior director at Bradley & Sons, told Lincolnshire Live: “We are also hoping to be open in Saxilby by the Spring.

“We already serve the Saxilby area so it makes sense to locate there.

“Travel times from there to the new crematorium just outside Lea will be quicker than say going to the crematorium at Lincoln.

“The ground floor will be funeral premises and the upstairs used as residential accommodation for a member of staff.

“We’ll have two members of staff working there to begin with.”

 

Saxilby Post Office’s High Street branch closed when the service moved to the nearby Lincolnshire Co-op food store after more than 50 years.

Following the move, the building was used as a cafe but that is due to close once the lease ends and the building is sold.

Bradley & Sons Funeral Directors has asked West Lindsey District Council for permission to change the use to expand the business.

The company also wants to add an extension to link the main building with an existing car port.
