Ian joined Pughs over 24 years ago in 1996. Originally from Perthshire in Scotland, his journey began when he moved to Ludlow with his wife Debbie, who worked at Condover Hall School which was run by the R.N.I.B.
Ian trained as a funeral director at Pughs under the guidance of Geoff Rogers and Peter Forrest. He was later promoted to Director in 2002 and became responsible for overseeing all the day to day funeral operations. In 2020 he took over managing all the day to day business operations for W.R.R. Pugh & Son, Forget me Not Flowers and Copywrite. Ian has built a reputation for himself as a very experienced, caring and trusted funeral director offering guidance and support to families when they need it most.
Ian, Debbie and their three sons currently live in Shrewsbury. In his spare time, he enjoys walking his two dogs in the Shropshire hills, golf and fly fishing.
