Specialist marketing for the funeral sector

Telling your story to your clients in the funeral sector.
By a team from the funeral sector.

Who are we?

Sophie Hadley Marketing (or SH Marketing as we are known as!) was established in 2023, and initially ran by just our founder, Sophie. The team has since expanded and we now are pleased to work with a range of specialists on a freelance and project basis.

What makes us different? 

We have direct links and experience across the sector from a range of areas because we all have a funeral industry background. In fact, many of us still support the industry practically (our founder still does call outs for local funeral directors!).

We understand your challenges first hand and we know how to speak to bereaved families, industry colleagues and what is appropriate for the sector in a unique way. 

We are trusted, approved and trained

"As a funeral director, it can be difficult to know how to market our business and knowing that Sophie Hadley Marketing exists takes away a lot of that stress."
