At a time when many family owned funeral directors are being taken over by large, national companies, Andrew Grey Funeral Directors is proud to offer a personal independent service.
When the thriving business needed money to finish an extension and ensure the funeral home was fit for purpose, company director Andrew Grey began looking into funding options.
Keen to support a fellow local business rather than deal with the banks, Andrew was introduced to Gateway Commercial Finance via a mutual acquaintance.
Following one visit with Andrew, Simon and his team were able to recommend crowdfunding as the most suitable funding option . While Andrew had never considered going down the crowdfunding route before, Simon was on hand to guide him through the full process.
Gateway Commercial Finance filled in the paperwork ensuring it contained all of the relevant information potential investors required and sent off the formal application. It wasn't long until Andrew received notification that the funding had been successful and the money was quickly obtained.
The funding has enabled the final alterations and adaptations to the building, ensuring that it is fit for purpose in the future, without using all of the business capital up.
Andrew Grey said: "Simon would be the first person I would ring when looking for business finance. He knew exactly what the investors were looking for and wrote an application which ticked all of their boxes. Gateway Commercial Finance did a great job and were always on hand if there were any problems. I would highly recommend Gateway Commercial Finance."
