I am an independent funeral director in Lurgan, Co. Armagh. I started full time in the funeral industry in 2005 with Malcomsons Funeral Service, Lurgan. My first funeral was that of the late Rev Dr G B G McConnell on the 18th February 2005 in Warrenpoint Presbyterian Church. During this time I gained a wealth of knowledge. I studied at McKiernan & Sons in Kilrea under Mrs Eily McKiernan. In 2015 a change in company circumstances lead to my resignation. This opened up a new chapter as I founded Ronnie Russell Independent Funeral Directors.
