About Us

The business was started on 11th January 1928 by James ‘Roy’ Layzell. It was his wedding day, when he married Lily Layzell, and also the day that he moved to Awliscombe from Horton, Ilminster. This is where he was brought up and worked with his parents in their Building, Wheelwrights and Funeral business.

In 2001 Roy’s grandson and Les’s son, Paul, took over the running of the funeral business when Les passed away. Paul having been involved in the business from about 1979.
