J Howell & Daughters is a family-run business and one of the only local, independent funeral directors in Lichfield, Staffordshire.
Led by Jonathan and his daughters Amy and Abby, we have been providing a professional and caring service since 2012. Whether you’re looking for a traditional, green, or non-religious ceremony, we will help you tailor it to ensure your loved one is remembered fondly.
Jonathan has over 20 years’ experience in the funeral trade, helping many families in Staffordshire lay their loved ones to rest. His dedication to the client has been there since his time with FM & J Wait Lichfield, Sutton Coldfield Crematorium, and now J Howell & Daughters.
Many of our clients now see him as a friend, who has always been there for them through the most difficult of times.
Amy is the eldest daughter, following in Jonathan's footsteps after gaining an NVQ care qualification at college.
She has learned about all aspects of the trade from top and bottom, taking care of families from the initial arrangement right through to the day of service. Like J Howell & Daughters, she prides herself on assisting families and creating a farewell that is befitting of their loved one.
Jonathan’s middle daughter Abby joined the business in February 2018, after studying media at college, Abby joined to undertake the administrative tasks in the office. Abby also provides care for clients on their arrival to make arrangements or visit their loved ones in our chapel of rest. Abby has been around the area her whole life, bringing comfort to our clients that she has been there previously through difficult times.
Nicola initially met Jonathan whilst working for a large corporate funeral organisation, before joining J Howell & Daughters in 2016 as our Funeral Manager.
She brings 8 years’ experience with her having worked in all aspects of the trade, allowing her to not only handle the administrative side of the business but more importantly take care of the families.
