Lodge Brothers Family-owned and managed for 7 generations

Lodge Brothers began as a family business currently run by six members of the Lodge family who are seventh generation funeral directors Clandon. While the current extended Lodge Family across the UK is not necessarily blood-related, the bonds between all of the funeral directors at Lodge Brothers still run deep because of the shared heritage they have and because of the common goal that they share.  This is to ensure that each person who crosses their doorstep knows that they are in safe hands and can rest assured that no detail is overlooked. With so much experience and a deep love for what can only be called a vocation, Lodge Brothers funeral directors East Horsley provide many options for the funerals, which honours the memory of the deceased.

Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors Godalming are unequivocally the most accessible funeral Directors in the country which means that you do not have to go far to find us when the times comes that you should be looking for a Funeral Director. 2020 began with the harsh reality that we all need to expect the unexpected. Covid 19 has caused mayhem across the country and globally and sadly resulted in the passing of a great many people both young and old. While the older members of our country and those with underlying health issues, have been struck down the most, it does not mean that a person can afford to be nonchalant. Each person has the responsibility of taking action to ensure his or her health and safety and that of those whom are closest.  Lodge Brothers have seen first-hand how this global pandemic has affected many families which is why we are so grateful for the dedicated Lodge Brothers team who compassionately assist families at their time of grief.

Funeral directors have to focus on two major areas: taking care of the logistics and legalities involved in the passing of a person, as well as taking care of the emotional aspects ensuring that the life of the person who has departed is respected and celebrated in the way in which they lived. But to the Funeral directors at Lodge Brothers, this is not a stranger who has passed away… it’s your family and who becomes our family which is why we treat each instance with the love and respect we would give if it WAS our own family. No request is too much to ask and no need is less important than the next as every single decision which has to be made for help finalise the person’s life, is of utmost importance in order for you be supported the journey that you find yourself facing. Nothing is more important to Lodge Brothers than to ensure that we are always here to help

IBS supply Blowers, Industrial Vacuums, Vacuum Pumps & Portable Vacuums

HomeLooking to significantly improve the pneumatic conveying systems for your business? IBS Industrial Blower Systems can offer you solutions that improve overall efficiency and reduces wear and tear on your equipment. What makes IBS such a success as a business, is the depth and understanding that their engineers have of the countless applications, functions and solutions provided by the products that they sell, service, repair, recondition for basically any production, manufacturing or industrial environment imaginable. At the end of the day, it comes down to excellent service, reliable products and a blend of customer service and practical application at competitive prices and being physically able to provide all of this, all the time.

While best known for being suppliers of vacuum pumps, blowers and similar equipment such as compressors, those use in the road tanker industry, or rotary valves most commonly in the food industry, IBS has extended their range to include dense conveying equipment and systems to accommodate the needs of industries such as milling, environmental, chemical and building industries. It is fair to say that while the application of dilute phase systems, widely accepted as being more economical and simpler in application, is a limited application when compared to dense phase systems. Where there is a requirement to move a denser product or concentration of fragile, abrasive or friable materials, the dense phase pneumatic system, such as the Gvf impianti range available from IBS, is undoubtedly more efficient. The ability to move bulk product, while preserving the integrity of the product, at low velocity with high pressure, results in higher industrial efficiency, with less wear and tear on the system, reducing the cost of system maintenance.

Speak to IBS process engineers who can perform a full survey, complete with reports and plans which will provide you with a full choice of relevant and practical options which will assist you in designing the best system, relevant to your business’s needs.

Over the last decade, the use of dense conveyancing systems and industrial mixing equipment has seen a sharp rise in utilisation in the fast paced FMCG environment, especially due to developments made in this industry resulting from the sharp rise in demand for packaged and pre-prepared goods. In a world that is itself, fast moving, keeping up with consumer demand requires innovation, effectiveness and efficiency. Well-known manufacturers of industrial mixing equipment, Mix srl and Olocco company, consistently meet industry’s demand for products which can sustain the high volumes of materials, with high quality equipment which does not suffer easily from wear and tear.

IBS has been supporting industry by providing them with reliable new and reconditioned equipment that is the bedrock of the reputation that has sustained IBS over many decades.

4x4m peaked commercial diy marquee

When it comes to the type of marquee would be most suitable, it is good to understand the difference in type of marquee and the materials used. Our 4m marquees range come in 2 different types: party tents and marquees. The term party tent is used around the world to describe a marquee, which is better suited for personal or private use. The material used for the party tent is made from a lighter weight material, typically PE (Polyethylene), a tarpaulin like material that comes in 80 to 240 grams per square meter, (the thicker the material the hardier and heavier it is) , or poly/PVC which consists of PVC however coated on just 1 side of the material and is a good alternative to the more expensive PVC marquees. PE for a party tent is perfect as it’s more economic than a heavy-duty marquee, which are really, only meant for use for commercial purposes. PE is 100% waterproof and its significantly lighter weigh means that it is quicker to erect (see our 4 x 4m pop-up gazebo marquee) making this type of marquee ideal for garden parties, as temporary structures and extensions that you can add to an existing structure.

4x4m premium diy marquee

DIY Marquees has seven types of 4 x 4m products in this range, 3 of which are suitable for the private user. For those who are interested in investing in a marquee with extra strength and durability, in the same range of 4 x 4m marquees are commercial and professional options made from PVC instead of PE, which means the integrity of the material, offers more strength for frequent use. The 4 x 4 commercial marquee is also available with a peaked-shaped roof that adds some flare to your standard commercial marquee. Both of these styles are however made with 500gsm PVC and come with a galvanized steel framework made from 42mm thick steel. This is an excellent 3 / 4 season option for any commercial user.

Dukes of Daisy Non-Sexual Escorts since 2013

It’s fascinating to look back over the last 60 years and see how far the human race has come with the support of information technology. During the timeframe of less than 1 generation, we have moved from the invention of the first supercomputer, in the 1960s, to the 1970’s when the size of computers decreased and the functionality began to significantly gain traction, as computers were already beginning to network and communicate with each other. Into the 1980’s we began to see computers becoming more accessible to small businesses and even some domestic computers through to the 90’s where it became quite a lot more affordable for a lot of households, in the first world particularly, to have a computer with an external modem in the home, with which people were able to communicate via software to other computers on all sides of the world.

Lodge Brothers Legal Services fees are fixed and agreed in advance

Dealing with members of the public who are in dire need of assistance when they have had a family member pass away, is something that Sophie knows all about. Sophie’s aim, because of her experience, is to ensure that she supports each and every one of her clients with personal, empathetic, and qualified professional legal advice.

Lodge Legal Signing Documents

There is not a large understanding of what it is involved when a person has passed away and their affairs need to be attended to. While most people are very familiar with the concept that they should have a Will in place, the reality is that a vast majority of those people are unprepared when it comes to actually draw up a Will in the anticipation of the end of their lives. And even less so when it comes to probate. Few people understand the legal requirements attached to ensuring that the instructions of the Will are followed correctly.

The process of probate Walton and probate West Byfleet includes facilitating finalization of the affairs of the deceased person, in terms of their finances, assets, and properties. A grant of probate Shepperton process is a court-based one which is why it is highly recommended that your representative is a legal one who understands the implications of the law, who is able to speak on your behalf when you are not able to. A probate Sunbury attorney can be selected by yourself ahead of time. Our probate Weybridge attorney will have the insight and understanding of your Will and testament and will know what your intentions are for your deceased estate as well as who it will include and exclude. Sophie Andrews and her legal team confirm that while there may be some instances where probate may not be required, more often than not, there is an accumulation of possessions that must be distributed afterlife.
