We were proud to welcome guests to the opening of our new branch in Woodley.
The branch, at 1 Headley Road, was officially opened by Mr James Puxley, the Lord-Lieutenant for the Royal County of Berkshire, who unveiled the commemorative plaque. Guests also included Mayor of Woodley Councillor Kay Gilder, and Wokingham Borough Mayor Cllr Bill Soane.
Ken Murphy, the Funeral Administrator at the branch, has lived in Woodley for the last 30 years. He said: ‘After living here for so long it is good to be able to give something back. I like to be able to help people at their hour of need. It is a close knit community in Woodley.’
A.B. Walker has been supporting bereaved families for nearly 200 years and on the wall at the new branch is a picture of Alfred Blyth Walker who took over the business in 1882.
We have been supporting bereaved families in Woodley and Earley for generations.
We are now proud to be at the heart of the community in our new branch and to be able to offer bereaved families a service on their doorstep.
