Our History

R.W. Percival was originally called Webster’s, a firm of joiners and undertakers with their own horse-drawn hearse. In the 1930’s Frank Webster who was the founder’s son, was joined by his brother-in-law Robert Percival. The business then became known as Webster & Percival and then later simply as R. W. Percival.

In 1963 Charlie Belfield joined the firm and eventually became the sole proprietor when Bob retired in 1980. At the time Charlie was well known in the area for breeding shire horses which he successfully exhibited at local shows.

Charlie died suddenly on 31st October 2008 having conducted a funeral earlier that day.

In 2009 the business was acquired by the Jepson family and is now under the personal supervision of Tom Jepson. Tom is the fifth generation of his family to be a funeral director and is fully qualified having gained his diploma (DipFD) in 2009.

Testimonials

What our families say

“The team at Percival’s are wonderful. Harry, Tom, Debs and all their staff who helped us arrange the service, assisted at the service and the journey to Macclesfield and back could not do enough for our family. Genuine caring people which are exactly what you need at such a time.

We wanted a woven casket for our Mum and for it to be covered like an English country garden. They provided exactly that, and it looked so beautiful. The flowers were gorgeous, and everyone said how they’d never seen one like it before. Service is second to none. Would definitely, definitely recommend.”
