The Bond Family Tradition of Service
"Help and understanding when you need it most" – that is the guiding ethos behind the long history of Funeral Directors, R H Bond. For 140 years, five generations of the same family have supported the bereaved by providing funeral services for their deceased loved ones.
The firm was originally established by G P Riches, the great grandfather of current owner Colin Bond. Colin’s father Ray and his mother, Sylvia, managed what had been renamed as R H Bond Funeral Directors from the early 1980s. Colin worked alongside his father from his teens and now, over 30 years later, he regards his role as a Funeral Director as a vocation. His personal commitment is to provide direct support to bereaved clients before, during and after the funeral. He recently said...
"I take care of those who have died but we also care for the living for as long as we are needed. I will always talk to anyone who is troubled or has questions following a funeral, as well as in the days leading up to it."
As time has moved on, the business has adapted so that every traditional option or modern opportunity can be engaged to make a funeral a ‘bespoke’ event that truly represents the person who has died.
Throughout the many generations leading to today’s R H Bond, service to the local community has been uppermost. Today, with families often being geographically distant, the same caring, gentle, direct and personal approach is available to families living outside Norfolk with immediate support when a Norfolk-based relative or friend dies.
The common thread throughout the many, many years between the establishment of G P Riches in 1872 and R H Bond as it is today, is the determination of dedicated professionals doing everything possible to ease the pain of bereavement by managing the practical, logistical and administrative elements associated with a death.
