Our team

Introducing all at Arthur E. Davey

The team at Arthur E. Davey is made up of funeral directors, funeral operatives, chauffeurs, and bearers.
Each member of our team is highly experienced and professional; they are also kind, sensitive,
and caring people who simply want to help.

Tony Davey

Dip.F.D. and M.B.I.F.D.

Tony is responsible for the overall smooth running of Arthur E. Davey. He holds a diploma in funeral directing and is a member of the British Institute of Funeral Directors. Tony firmly believes in offering a deeply compassionate,
family-oriented, and supportive service to every customer.

Nicola Davey

Dip.F.A.A. and M.B.I.F.D.

Nicola is the third generation
of Daveys to work in the family business. She has progressed through the ranks from cleaner
and tea girl to a fully-fledged
funeral director. In March 2015, Nicola passed her diploma
in funeral arranging and administration.

Kevin Howdle


Kevin began working with us as a part-time pallbearer before
joining our backroom staff in 2017. With his caring and compassionate nature, Kevin has since become
one of our funeral directors.

David Johnston


David is Tony’s son-in-law.
While he comes from an unrelated background, David is naturally compassionate and a true professional. He has embarked
on the diploma course and hopes
to be fully qualified in the near future.

Yvonne Wadsworth

Funeral Director
Yvonne joined the company part-time in July 2010 to help with the bookwork. Over the years, Yvonne’s role developed into a full-time bookkeeper, office administrator, and funeral director. After 13 years, Yvonne decided to try retirement, but she missed the challenges of the office and the camaraderie of the team. We are pleased to say that she has since come back to work two days a week.

Lucy Hanks


Lucy joined our team as fleet manager in 2021. Lucy’s family
and the Davey family have a long history together; her grandfather was a gravedigger for Arthur E. Davey, and her father was a driver
at Blue Iris Coaches and Arthur E. Davey & Sons in the early 1970s.

Arthur E. Davey Family Funeral Directors are proud members of:

NAFAD – National Association of Funeral Directors
SAIF – The National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors
