Company History

Marion started her career in the funeral industry a little over 30 years ago, after taking on some of the responsibilities from her Father – in – law, commonly known as Bill Roberts who was well known throughout the Vale of Belvoir for his handy work within the building trade as well as the funeral industry. Eventually after some years, Marion had taken on the full responsibility of the funeral work after Bill had retired. Marion continued to serve the Vale of Belvoir and surrounding areas till early 2020 and the recent pandemic when she decided it was finally time to retire. Marion decided that instead of fully closing the doors, she wanted to pass the legacy of the William Roberts name to someone she knew and could trust to continue the legacy. Now M. A. Mills Funeral Service in Radcliffe – On – Trent, a funeral service who Marion has worked very closely with for the past 20 years, are now proud to be serving the Vale of Belvoir.

What is dying?

I am standing on the seashore, a ship sails in the morning breeze and starts for the ocean.

She is an object of beauty and I stand watching her till at last she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says: "She is gone."

Gone Where?

Gone from my sight that is all.

She is just as large in the masts, hull and spars as she was when I saw her, and just as able to bear her load of living freight to its destination.

The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, not in her, and just at the moment when someone at my side says,

"She is gone"

there are others who are watching her coming, and other voices take up a glad shout:

"There she comes!"

and that is dying.
