Hellen and Gari Purcell Jones

Today four generations on W.R.R. Pugh & Son is being run by Perry Pughs daughter Helen and her husband Gari. Helen was born and grew up in Shrewsbury and in 1977 studied nursing in London, where she met her future husband Gari who was also studying medicine.

Their work took them to Jersey where Gari worked as an anaesthetist in the local hospital and later became the chairman of the Jersey Hospice. Helen also worked at the Hospice as a volunteer bereavement counsellor. In 2015 Gari received an MBE for his services to the hospice movement, which was a very special and proud achievement for the family.

Now retired, Helen and Gari work very closely with the team at W.R.R Pugh & Son. They continue to build on the high standard of dedication and personal service set by Jabus, Billy and Perry Pugh. This is why today the business has earned a reputation throughout Shropshire and Mid Wales for providing professional, caring and dignified funeral services to bereaved families.
