About Egham & Hythe - Egham

Egham & Hythe Funeral Directors was established by Ian Glazier and Evelyn Woodison in 1990. They had previously worked together at Hodgson Holdings, a local large funeral firm that was sold to Great Southern Group, and decided to open Egham & Hythe for themselves.

Over the next few years Ian and Evelyn enjoyed great success covering a large local area and providing a good service to the community with the aid of P Boast & Son for vehicles and bearers. As the business grew, so did the overheads and financial demands, and the pair approached John Ford and Tony Mears for advice and assistance during this period.

Eventually they decided to sell the business to help Evelyn retire and free themselves from the stress of running the business on a day-to-day basis. It therefore made sense to sell the business to their associates at G M Luff & Partners with whom they’d built up a good relationship over the years. Ian decided to stay on with the firm and took on various roles across the company during subsequent years.

As part of the Ford Mears group, Egham & Hythe continues to provide a caring and professional service to the local community around Egham. Further investment in the business by Ford Mears has meant that Egham & Hythe is now able to offer a wider range of services and vehicle options, whilst still providing a personalised service that honours the legacy of Egham & Hythe’s independent, family-run business.
