The Story of Aurora

In loving memory of Pauline Newman 4th July 1945 – 11th March 2018.
Aurora funerals has been borne from a life of supporting others through some of the worst times of their lives. After 30 years in the social sector, supporting people who were at their lowest, I helped change lives and am proud of what I have achieved.

Following the death of my beloved mum, I too found myself needing support. Unfortunately it wasn’t readily available and somehow I not only supported my sister, holding her up when she needed it most, but I struggled through and came out the other side.

For months after I suffered with health anxiety and eventually received counselling to help cope with my loss. After a year or so I felt much stronger and began to explore the idea of working in the funeral industry to support others travelling the same journey that I had experienced. After months of research and training I co-founded White Feather Funerals in Heathfield.

In the years that followed it became apparent that many families wanted an alternative to Church or Crematorium funerals with traditional, but expensive services. I wanted to help families and give them options. Aurora was founded with those families firmly in my mind. My journey through grief has very much led me to new beginnings, I feel I have found what I have been searching for, for the past 30 years.

Above is a picture of my mum, even in death she never stopped guiding me, I know without a doubt that she never will.
