Your best interests are the priority of everyone who works with us
In a modern world of big business and corporate companies it is sometimes difficult to maintain the personal touch and give the service that was once expected from everyone. Roy Quinton Funeral Directors try to preserve that standard that was set by our predecessors. To that end, our staff are all local residents who know the local traditions and are familiar with the Walsall & Wolverhampton Churches and Clergy. It helps us to help you when you are arranging a funeral service for someone special and who is dear to you.

Funeral Director and Embalmer
Scott started working in the funeral industry in his school holidays at the age of 13.
After leaving school, he joined one of the larger funeral groups and gained a wide range of experience whilst working all over the Midlands. He then left to work at the Royal Newcross Hospitals and Wednesfield Mortuaries.
His father started Roy Quinton Funeral Directors and during this time he worked for him in his holidays and out of hours. Scott then returned to the family business to help his father Roy full-time. He is a qualified embalmer and has experience in almost all aspects of the funeral industry.
He says “Nothing in this job surprises me anymore and the change over the years from when I first started is vast with the way people celebrate the life of a loved one.
Over the years I have made many good friends in my job, from the people I work with and the people that I have helped through this time in need.
I would like to think that I look after people’s family as if they were one of my own.”
In Scott’s spare time he enjoys being with family in the country side and riding his motorbike.
