Funeralcar's 2,000th apprentice Ryan Coombes

Ryan Coombes, 23, from Grimsby made the news this week when he became the 2,000th apprentice taken on by Funeralcare.

We’re on track to welcome 500 apprentices this year and are still the only national funeral provider to offer a funeral apprenticeship.

Couple that with the fact that a third of the apprentices we’ve recruited since the launch of Funeralcare’s apprenticeship programme in 2013 have been over the age of 50.
