Paul O’Brien

Paul’s career within the funeral profession began after he left school at 17 years old, and started working in East London. Paul joined a funeral directors in his area and received the National Association of funeral directing Diploma in 1992.

Since then he has built up his experience over his 30 year career and could not see himself working in any other sector. “I decided to join this profession as I enjoyed working with the families and ensuring their loved one received a send off that not only reflected them but was also a way for their families to celebrate their life and to say a personal goodbye”.

Paul has been living and working in Shrewsbury since 2001, and joined Pughs in 2007. Paul is married with four children. He enjoys spending time with his family, walking the dog and riding his motorcycle.
