Wathall’s Re-Signs with the Rams

Wathall’s Re-Signs with the Rams

Wathall’s, Derby’s longest established independent funeral directors, has renewed its partnership with Derby County Football Club for the sixth year.

With branches in Derby city centre, Allestree, Alvaston, Ashbourne, Borrowash, Chaddesden and Burton-on-Trent, Wathall’s remains a Rams Preferred Partner - enabling families to have special access to Pride Park Stadium following the unique and personal funeral of their loved one.

Options include the chance to place a commemorative brick and ashes around the stadium perimeter, using the club logo and colours for service sheets, flower arrangements, coffins and urns.

All are available either as part of a funeral pre-payment plan for someone who is in the process of planning their own funeral or for the bereaved family.

Wathall’s also supports the club’s ‘Rams Remember’ programme when the club offers supporters the opportunity to submit the details of their loved ones whose names can then appear on the LED advertising boards surrounding the pitch at selected games.

Wathall’s managing director Helen Wathall MBE is a lifelong Rams fan and the fifth generation of her family to run the funeral directors which has been serving local communities since 1858.

She explained:

“As Derby’s longest established funeral directors, we are proud to not only support the Rams but also to provide special features for families who entrust us with planning their loved one’s funeral.

“The memorial bricks, including the opportunity to place cremated ashes underneath, are particularly popular with families.

“Our specialist stonemasons at Art Stone Memorials, create the bricks especially for each person. 

“The bricks create a lasting memorial at Pride Park Stadium and many families gather at the spot to share memories and celebrate their loved one’s life, particularly before and after the special ‘Rams Remember’ matches.”
