Who we are
We are a compassionate and respectful guide through difficult times of personal loss.
Over the years, the name Lyndhurst has been providing caring service at home, in the Caribbean region and at times further afield, and has become synonymous with extending empathy to those experiencing the pain of bereavement. Ours is a rich and fascinating history, dating back over 60 years. Indeed, our lineage stretches even further back to the days of our precursors, Burton and Company and later, Parkinson and Gill, household names in time. We have long represented that symbol of support anchor to families when the inevitable moment arrives.
