Your best interests are the priority of everyone who works with us
Richard Lloyd Funeral Services always maintain the personal touch and give the service that is expected from everyone. We try to preserve that standard that was set by our predecessors. To that end, our staff are all local residents who know the local traditions and are familiar with the Woodley Churches and Clergy. It helps us to help you when you are arranging a funeral service for someone special and who is dear to you.
Meet the team:
Martin was born in Reading, but spent his youth growing up in Blackwood, South Wales, until moving back to this area in 1982. He now has over thirty years of experience, gained working for several firms of funeral directors, and he joined us as Funeral Director in June 2014.
Away from work, Martin has two grown up sons and also a beautiful granddaughter. He used to play cricket for Eversley and then Bracknell, before retiring from the game two years ago. Martin lives in Ascot and is married to Jacquie. Living so close to Windsor Great Park, when not seeing the family, or making trips back to Wales, he very much enjoys long walks with his Staffordshire bull terrier, Stanley.
Cheri has lived in the Wokingham area all her life. She has always had a passion for caring, and after bringing up her family, went to work in local homes, becoming Care Team Leader at a large care home in Wokingham. Having cared for people until the end of their lives, however, she decided that she wanted to work in the funeral industry, and we were delighted when she joined Richard Lloyd Funeral Services in 2016, on the retirement of Angie Southern. Cheri has a warm and welcoming manner, and is often the first point of contact for families, either on the telephone, or when they visit us in person. Cheri lives in Finchampstead with her husband and children and enjoys spending time with her family.
Yvonne has been with Richard Lloyd Funeral Services since shortly after we opened in 2016, keeping the office in order and assisting with in the arrangement and administration of funerals. She brings a very personal touch to her work and to our families, having lived and worked in Woodley for many years. Yvonne has two grown-up sons, both of whom live locally, as well as a young grandson, though she spends a fair amount of time travelling back to Liverpool, where she grew up, and where her mother and sister still live. Our families frequently speak of Yvonne’s warmth in their dealings with her and she certainly takes tremendous pride in her work.
Philip has been part of Richard Lloyd Funeral Services since 2008. He drives and maintains our vehicles and makes sure that everything behind the scenes runs smoothly.
Philip lives in Tadley, and in his spare time enjoys regular trips to the south coast with his partner, as well as baking lots of cakes with his young son.
