Proud To Be Local And Independent
R. Gist & Son have been serving Torrington and the surrounding area for
50 years as local independent funeral directors and monumental masons. Ralph
Gist started the business in 1958, as builders and undertakers.
R. Gist & Son are able to advise on and arrange every detail of the funeral,
be that registration procedure, choice of coffin, mourners' limousines etc as
well as ongoing liaison with clergy, burial authorities, crematorium staff, florists,
caterers and the local press. Other specialised requirements such as a horse-drawn
hearse, motorcycle hearse and green (environmentally friendly) funerals can also
be safely left to Ralph and his son Andrew.
R. Gist & Son are also proud of the memorial work they do. Andrew does all
his own letter-cutting and installation. He and Ralph are of course thoroughly
familiar with all the cemetery and churchyard regulations governing this aspect
and can advise accordingly, ensuring that the job is seen through to completion
and the family's satisfaction.
One particular service which is being used increasingly these days is the Pre-Paid
Funeral Plan. There are many advantages involved in considering this service,
not least the peace of mind in knowing that all the necessary arrangements are
in place. This can also bring relief from financial anxiety, to those who already
have enough concerns at such a stressful time. Ralph and Andrew will be pleased
to discuss this and any of their services, either in their local office or in
your own home, if you prefer.
In a world where all kinds of businesses are increasingly being taken over by
large conglomerates and multi-nationals, R. Gist & Son are proud to remain
totally independent - local people here to help and serve the local community.
