In 1987 Andrew and Heather made a life changing decision when they purchased William Farmer so that it remained a locally owned, independent business. Andrew enjoys being involved with families, helping them farewell a loved one. He and Heather are proud to own and operate this business which has been part of Bendigo’s history for 150 years.
They strive to ensure that honesty; integrity; care; and compassion; are the cornerstones of the way they operate their business. They will also continue to look for new ways to improve the experience for their client families, staff, and the community.
Heather manages the office, looks after the advertising, arranges funerals and assists on funeral services. She helps those who wish to pre-plan their funeral service by discussing and recording down their wishes. She is very caring, thoughtful and a friendly person, who is always trying to make life a little easier for their families.
Jesse is an active member of the community through his involvement with the State Emergency Service, Cystic Fibrosis, Bendigo Easter Festival and many sporting groups. He enjoys exploring new technology and ways to create a different experience for the families of William Farmer.
Alan has been in the funeral industry for seventeen years now; he’s enjoyed his time at William Farmer for the past eight years. Alan is committed to providing outstanding service to our families at a very vulnerable time in their lives.
Caring for a families loved one with respect and dignity is often rewarded with comments from families after a viewing. Ron joined the William Farmer team 9 years ago, returning home to settle again in Bendigo. Ron is enjoying renewing friendship and meeting new families.
