“Our focus is on caring for the families in our local community. Our family businesses have been trusted by local families for four generations. Our family and staff are deeply connected to the local area. We know and appreciate local customs, traditions, and expectations. You can trust us to be there for you and your family when you need us. As a family run funeral directors we can still provide a very, very different approach to caring for local families than big national companies. Nothing is too much trouble.” Sebastian & Dominic Loram
Stockman & Loram is owned by Ian Loram, with the business now operated by his two sons Dominic and Sebastian, along with Ian’s wife Vanessa. The Loram family are assisted by their well respected team of experienced local funeral directors Elaine Harrison, Les Down, Stuart Gayton, Robert Hunt and Neil Edwards. Many local families would have known Ian’s father, Douglas Loram, who previously owned Torquay firms Torbay & District and Drakes of Torbay and also Maunders Funeral Services in Paignton prior to his retirement in 2001. Sadly, these funeral directors are now owned by a national group and are not family run. Consequently Stockman & Loram are the only remaining family owned and run funeral directors in Paignton and Brixham and continue to look after families throughout Paignton, Brixham, Torquay and across South Devon.
