About Holmes & Daughters
Funeral Director in East Sheen

Holmes & Daughters was first established in 1993 in Ashford, Middlesex, by brothers David and Andrew Holmes. Andrew had industry experience, having taken an apprenticeship with a well-known firm, whilst David managed the finances. The brothers’ interest in the funeral business stemmed from their stepfather being a coroner’s officer, and they were keen to establish their own family business.

Enlisting the help of family members including their other two brothers, sister, sister-in-law and some close family friends, the business thrived as it offered an alternative to the established funeral directors in the area. Due to a good reputation, Holmes & Daughters was soon able to expand, opening offices in Feltham in 1994, Teddington in 1995 and East Sheen in 1996.

However, due to unfortunate circumstances the Holmes family decided to sell their business to G M Luff & Partners in 2000. John Holmes stayed on with G M Luff & Partner as a Board member with responsibility for the day to day running of the area he was so familiar with.

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

John Blissett-Turner

John Blissett-Turner

Funeral Director
John has worked within the funeral industry since 1992. He started with The Plantsbrook Group in West London where he studied all aspects of funeral service from embalming, international repatriation, disaster management through to arranging and conducting funerals. Born and raised in Shepherds Bush, John was soon the funeral director for WS Bonds serving the local community where he has grown up. In 2006 John moved to Richmond with his company and was funeral director for TH Sanders in Ham and Richmond and also opened TH Sanders in Ashford. In 2011 he moved from funeral service into cemetery service where he was a cemeteries officer for The London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames. Although John enjoyed working within the six cemeteries the borough manages, he missed looking after people in the way that funeral service allows. John left cemetery service in 2019 and joined G M Luff & Partners as a Funeral Director, where he was initially based at Chertsey until moving to Holmes & Daughters in East Sheen in 2020 as a Funeral Director, bringing him closer to his residential community.
