In 1985 Grassby Funeral Service extended into the Blandford and North Dorset area by working with local funeral director, Colin Close to open Colin J. Close Funeral Service in Blandford Forum.

Colin has lived in the Blandford area all his life and had worked in the funeral trade since leaving school when he joined Cherretts Funeral Directors in Blandford.

In 1988 the business also purchased Cherretts which was incorporated with Colin J Close Funeral Service.

The business eventually moved to new premises in Blandford when they acquired and renovated the old ambulance station in Peel Close, off the Salisbury Road.

These excellent premises complement the high standard of service the business provides to Blandford and the surrounding area.

In addition the business has a Chapel of Rest facility at the Cemetery Chapel in Sturminster Newton.

The branch is overseen by Manager/Funeral Director, Kaye Clemens, who is qualified with the Diploma in Funeral Directing and Office Manager, Cathy McIver.

Colin J Close Funeral Service are members of NAFD (National Association of Funeral Directors) and SAIF (National Society of Allied Independent Funeral Directors).
