Welcome to M. Coghlan Funeral Directors
The company was established in 1861 by Michael Coghlan and is currently run by Richard Coghlan, the fifth generation of the family. We have records dating back to 1881, when my great great grandfather, Michael Coghlan ran the business. The records show that in the early 1900’s we were general carpenters, but in those days most local carpenters also took care of the funerals, as they had the materials and expertise to make the coffins.
Charlie Coghlan, my Grandfather died in 1976. He knew I would be joining the business, as I was training at a large funeral directors in London. I joined my father, John Coghlan in the family business in 1976, and later I took the “Diploma in Funeral Directing” (Dip FD). John Died in 2012.
Daniel Coghlan, the sixth generation, has joined his father in the business and passed his Diploma in Funeral Services in September 2015.
