17-Year Old Starts His Own Funeral Home Business In UK

United Kingdom

George Simnett, of Loughborough, Leicestershire is believed to have become the youngest person in the country to run his own funeral director’s business.

The youngster had already been cleaning and preparing bodies full-time for the past two months – and last month set up his own firm GE Simnett and Family Funeral Directors.

The teenage undertaker currently runs his company from the premises of Charnwood Funeral Services in Loughborough where he learned his trade.

But he plans to buy his own offices as soon as he finds somewhere suitable.

Hailing from a farming family in Coleorton, Leics, he broke with family tradition by ditching livestock for dead bodies.
