About Us

On 15th March 2012, the world, as I knew it, changed forever when my dad, Hugh McShane passed away. I, alongside my siblings were faced with organising a meaningful and final tribute and taking care of Dad’s affairs. Although I, Stephanie, have spent the majority of my career running a very successful local Wedding & Events business organising major, large scale events nothing prepared me for the rollercoaster of emotions which often made even the simplest of decisions almost too much to cope with. As a family we spent hours going from place to place, trying to find a venue for the funeral reception, organising flowers, asking questions, trying to absorb the answers, researching, making decisions and hoping desperately we were doing the right thing. Eventually after much deliberation, we held a funeral service for Dad, which I’m sure he would have been proud of.
Moving forward to the very next year on 22nd March 2013, David’s father Arthur sadly passed away and once again we were plunged into the same bewildering melting pot of trying to take care of those left behind, organise a meaningful final tribute and manage those endless forms and procedures that follow a death. Once again, after endless hours visiting venues, researching and everything else that is involved we organised and held a beautiful funeral service for Arthur.
We often commented on how difficult it had been gathering everything together and trying to find somewhere suitable for the funeral etc and that one thought planted a seed which grew over time. And, as is often the case, out of the darkness came something good and we decided that we would use our experience to help others get through those bewildering, confusing early days following a death and so Footprints Bereavement Services was created to do exactly that: to guide, support and provide information for the newly bereaved.
We hope you don’t need us but we’re here when you do.
Stephanie & David Bines
