Independant Funeral Homes

The Old Bank, Aylsham

Our second branch was opened in 2009. Ivan has many links to Aylsham and spent many weekends shopping there with his grandmother as a boy. His grandmother, Lily Norton, lived in the town for most of her life, but unfortunately passed away just 6 months before the branch opened.

To this end, the funeral home is dedicated to the memory of her. Following the warm response we received with regards to the layout and feel of our Hethersett office, we opted to furnish the premises in a similar fashion.

Paul FisherPaul Fisher

As a child, Paul grew up in Cheshire and for most of his life has been involved in the funeral profession in some way. His granddad, Gerry Johns, was a qualified funeral director and embalmer, and lived at the funeral home he managed, so from a young age Paul has been aware of and took a keen interest in this type of work.

During his school years, Paul spent time at the funeral home for work experience. Following his A’ Levels, Paul moved to Manchester and tried various jobs but still had a passion for the profession he had grown up with. After 3 years, Paul came to Norwich and worked alongside Ivan when they opened Norton House, Hethersett together.
