The UK’s largest funeral services company, conducting around 70,000 funerals per annum from a network of over 500 funeral homes and operating 21 crematoria.

In February 2002 Montagu led the management buyout of Dignity Funeral Services from Houston-based Service Corporation International (“SCI”).  The strengths of our proposal, our relationship with management and our reputation for delivery gave SCI the confidence to award us exclusivity in January. We completed the transaction five weeks later.

In April 2004 Dignity returned to the London Stock Exchange following a successful IPO, which valued the business at £394 million.
