Toby Hunt Funeral Service

James Toby Bryan Hunt - Toby founded the business having been introduced to the funeral profession through work experience at Wollaston School.

Having grown up in Castle Ashby before moving to Earls Barton, Toby felt he should stay local to the area so as to help families who had known him from a young boy.

The premises Toby refurbished had previously been used as a Funeral Directors run by Sid Knight who had retired some years earlier.
