THE oldest funeral company in Portsmouth has opened a second branch.

A G Stapleford & Sons, which started on 1855 and is based in Powerscourt Road, North End, has opened a second outlet in West Street, Portchester.

It was opened by the deputy mayor of Fareham, Councillor Susan Bayford.

Business manager Martin Ripley said: ‘It gives us great pleasure to open a second branch. We hope people trust us to help them out, in what can be a difficult thing to come to terms with.

‘We were honoured to have the deputy mayor with us.

‘We’ve had a lot of people in the Fareham, Gosport and Portchester area, that come to us and say the Portsmouth office is a bit of distance away. Hopefully this one will help.’
