Our History

Joseph Lymer & Son was founded in the early 1950’s by Joseph and his son, George. The business evolved from the sale of fruit and veg to undertakers, following the demise of corner shops in the late 50’s.

The original business was based in their fruit and veg shop on Waterloo Street, Hanley. Joe would notoriously stand on the front step to capture passing trade whilst George sold produce from his horse and cart. 

The family moved out of the shop in Hanley, to the current premises at Bucknall in 1956.

George and his wife Eira had three daughters Sheila, Diana and Karen. Diana and Karen worked with their father upon leaving school and Karen’s husband Glen, a former engineer, later joined them in 1981.

George sadly passed away suddenly in 1981 aged 58, followed by Joe in 1985 and Eira in 1987. George’s main passion was for horses, and all three daughters have followed in his footsteps by competing at all levels on their ponies.

The Jepson family acquired the business in 2021 and are the fifth generation of funeral directors.
