Welcome to D. Hollowell & Sons, Blackpool, Wyre & Fylde’s first choice for funeral service.
As an independent family funeral home we work around the clock to serve our local communities and ease the burden a loss can bring. We recognise that funerals are unique and memorable occasions and we aim to tailor each service to your needs, from a traditional church affair to the more low key yet dignified ‘Simple Alternative’ option. Whatever your needs, we are here to assist and serve in every way.
The Hollowell family, originally from the farms of Northamptonshire moved to Blackpool in 1984 to look after a small hotel in Albert Road. Dedicated to customer service with attention to detail, Mrs. Janet Hollowell and husband David brought up two young boys Andrew and Robert and daughter Jackie with a similar work ethic. Andrew was introduced to the funeral profession after leaving Collegiate High School and completed an apprenticeship with a local funeral directors.
The natural aptitude Andrew showed for the profession shone through, and Janet and David nurtured their sons talent. They went on to sell the hotel in favour of supporting Andrew’s career in funeral service. Today, the Hollowell family are in their third generation and still serve bereaved families across Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde with that same personal touch and attention to detail set to seed in the farms of Northampton, nurtured through years of service in Blackpool’s hotel trade and now flourishing as the only funeral service on the Fylde Coast to treat each family they serve as they would their own.
