2019 has been another record year for the company.

Requests for emergency assistance continue to grow; we have been engaged throughout the year by both local authorities and the private sector.

Lee recently completed a five month period as interim registrar for a Midlands authority.

He was engaged earlier in the year in a revenue enhancement study for a local authority and is currently engaged as a consultant conducting a review of operations for a client within the industry.

We continue to be engaged as lead consultants for a new build crematorium.

Lee continues to be in demand as a tutor, having been engaged by APSE several times in the past year. His next two training days are taking place on Tuesday 14th in London and then Wednesday the 4th March in Birmingham.

2018 was another record year for the company and 2019 has started in the same fashion. The growth of the company in the last 2 years has surprised even us.

Melissa is engaged in a 3 month assignment assisting a London authority with technician cover until end of April. The emergency cover side of the business continues to be busy with 3 associates out each week for the next 3 weeks.

Lee has just completed a large feasibility with administrative assistance from Sharon for a Northamptonshire authority for extension to an existing cemetery, a new build cemetery, remote cremation services at a cemetery chapel and a new build crematorium. The study also included a key stakeholder study and need statement.

Lee continues to be busy as a tutor with an engagement last week in Northern Ireland and further tutoring courses in London on 19th March and Manchester on 26th June.

In April Lee is due to begin a 6 month Interim Management role for a Greater Manchester authority and he is lead consultant for a new build crematorium. Planning permission was submitted end of January with a decision due in May.

We are delighted to announce that Lee and Sharon’s daughter, Melissa Snashfold, has now joined the company on a full-time basis. Melissa completed her training as a Crematorium technician at Seven Hills Crematorium, Nacton, Suffolk, a site Lee helped establish in 2010. Melissa passed her ICCM CTTS exam on 10th October and becomes the 14th qualified technician associated with the company.

Due to the unprecedented volume of consultancy we are taking on, Melissa and Sharon will be assisting with desk top studies on behalf of clients, freeing Lee to continue his tutoring, public speaking engagements, site visits required for studies and reports and interim Management posts.

Lee will be speaking at the APSE Cemeteries and Crematoria Seminar on the 16th November 2018 at The Preston Marriott Hotel, Garstang Rd, Broughton, Preston PR3 5JB and his next tutoring assignment will be on 28th February 2019 in Belfast.

Assistance to cremation authorities continues all year round, in the past 12 months we have provided emergency cover assistance in 49 of the last 52 weeks – an astonishing achievement!

Consultancy is at an all time high, Lee is currently lead consultant on a large new build crematorium project, is carrying out 2 key stakeholder studies for potential new crematoria and has been asked to review business cases for 2 other new build crematoria.

Involvement in 5 different potential new build projects at any one time is a record even for us!

Lee has also been requested to provide Interim Management cover for 2 Crematoria and 5 Cemeteries.
