An independent, family run and multi award-winning

funeral directors based in Pershore, Upton, Malvern and Worcester.


Who we are

Matthew Jackson Dip. F.S.

Managing Director and Worcester Funeral Director

Matt started in the funeral profession over 10 years ago, gaining experience and training with The Co-Operative Funeralcare in Worcester, Evesham and Malvern. He then developed his experience and learnt the personal aspect of care with E Hill & Son Funeral Directors in Pershore. During this time he passed his Certificate in Funeral Services and Diploma in Funeral Services.

Matthew and Laura have two young children Phoebe and Thomas who attend school and childminders local to Pershore. As a family they spend time visiting local national trust properties, zoos, the cinema and local events.

Laura Jackson

Client Relations Director

Laura assisted Matt in the founding of the company in 2018. Whilst the company was finding its feet Laura continued her role in customer services in the private sector.

Following the acquisition of Andrew Phillips Funeral Services, Laura has now joined the company full time to ensure our business is offering the high level of service quality and ensuring all families receive the best care possible.

Mark Campion

Operations Director and Upton Funeral Director

Mark started in the funeral profession over 30 years ago, originally for a large company in London and then in the independent sector throughout the country. Mark owned his own funeral directors, Campion and New in Evesham before moving across to serve the community at M Presland Funeral Directors in Upton-upon-Severn, owned by Dignity Plc. He has a wealth of experience in traditional and bespoke services and is well known for his focus on family care. Mark is a family man with a great love of dogs. We welcome Mark’s vision and passion for his vocation and he really has become a firm foundation in our company.

Tracey Meakin

Malvern Funeral Director

Tracey began her funeral career with the same national funeral company as Mark, and Sylvia before moving to the independent setting of Andrew Phillips Funeral Service.

She helped Andrew manage the day to day running of the business as well as performing her role of funeral director. Her personality matches that of the Jackson Family team with a focus on providing high levels of family care. This shows that any bespoke funeral request or larger congregation can be dealt with in a calm but structured approach.

Having moved across to the Jackson Family team during the acquisition, Tracey will be working closely with Matthew to ensure families that have been cared for by both companies receive the same high level of professional service.

Taff Wiltshire

Funeral Operations Co-ordinator
Taff was Matthew’s first ever employee and turned up to his interview in a full leg brace knowing full well the job role required manual lifting. Matthew placed his trust in him and since then Taff has repaid that trust ten fold.
He completed a full career in the British Army and has now become a core part of how we excel in professionalism.
He works closely with the funeral directors to ensure our bearing team are fully briefed to maintain Jackson’s high standards. Taff also arranges the vehicle requirements and the maintenance. In all, he makes sure we are exactly where we should be, in immaculate order and punctual.
With his military background our logistical and operational procedures have become precise and the team’s shoes have never been so shiny.

Tim Hodges

Funeral Service Operative
Tim joined the Jackson funeral team as a casual funeral bearer in 2018. Gradually he has helped us more and more to become a key role within the company.
Tim assists Taff with the funeral operations as well as maintaining our branches. He is very family orientated and a loyal member of our team. Between Tim and Taff some of our finer procedures have changed over time making our funeral team one of the most impressive that Mark and Matthew have ever worked with. We have seen a new way that a coffin is removed from the hearse to the funeral bearers walking perfectly in step.
As they say, change is not always progress but progress is always change.

Christina Darling

Christina is the owner of Prime Mix Marketing in Worcester. Christina began working with Jackson Family as an advisor for marketing budgets and assisting with social media.

After a few months of building a relationship between the two companies it became apparent that Christina’s experience and approach to sensitive advertising helped to show the public how Jackson Family is different from other funeral directors.

Christina now manages all marketing communications allowing our funeral directors to focus on what matters to them… the families they serve.

Stephanie was working with Christina at Prime Mix Marketing and assisted Matthew with the management of our social media accounts.

Since the company foundations Matthew has used the social media platforms of Facebook and Twitter to show the public that talking about funerals is no longer a taboo subject.

With Stephanie’s experience of social media presence, and her passion to show how the Jackson Family company are challenging the public’s perceptions, she now manages all platforms through her own company, SD Social Media Solutions.
