All about us

Herbert Henry Birch started the business as monumental services in 1903 and also as wheelwrights.

It was originally established in Swainby by Burt Carter, although the funeral home relocated to 10 East End, Stokesley in the late 1990s, where it remains to this day.

Funeral Arranger Chrissi Graham also worked alongside Burt Carter until it was sold to Vincent Rea of Thomas Rea & Sons in 1992.

Bill Harbottle sold W Harbottle which became part of H W Carters when Vincent Rea sold in 1997.
