The Hunnaball Family Funeral Group has opend its second branch in Ipswich, bringing its total number of sites around Suffolk and Essex to 12.

The new branch, in Spring Road, Ipswich, has involved a major refurbishment of the building, with the work overseen by local architect Nick Barber.

Melanie Hunnaball said: “Following the success of our Norwich Road main branch which has now been established for over 20 years, we are pleased to be able to extend our services to east Ipswich and the surrounding areas.”

“The prominent position with easy access for clients, combined with the light and modern decor and our trademark exceptional service is now available for bereaved families in the local community.”

Nick Barber said: “As a small architectural practice it enables me to be personally immersed in all projects. Whilst I work on a variety of schemes and project values the challenges are always the same; to provide a bespoke client orientated service, and to exceed the client’s expectations.”

“The renovation of 420 Spring Road is just such a project. I am delighted with the results and that as an overall team we have been instrumental in bringing the property back into appropriate use.”

Richard Bertram of commercial property agents Beane, Wass & Box, which handled the transaction, said: “This property on Spring Road occupies a prominent corner position, not far from the town centre and I am confident it will be an ideal location for The Hunnaball Family Funeral Group. I wish all of the team the very best with the opening of their new premises.”
