In 1991, two experienced Funeral Directors saw a need for a new independent Funeral Director practice to serve
the local area of Surrey and Hampshire. Geoffrey Thorne was working with his father in their family firm, Kemp &
Stevens in Alton, while David Leggett had been a funeral director in Farnham for many years. The partnership of
Thorne-Leggett was established and their first office opened soon after in Whitehill with much success. David and
Geoff were determined to build their business on their principles of total professionalism and always making the
client their absolute priority. David retired in 2009, and Geoffrey opened the second office in Farnham in 2012.
Our team strive to create an atmosphere of relaxation and tranquillity to help our clients feel as comfortable
as possible when they visit to discuss the funeral arrangements. Geoffrey firmly believes that all funerals
should reflect the character of the person in life and he still pages all corteges from the place of departure into
Cemeteries, Churchyards or Crematoria.
