Memoria is a transformational acquisition for our DBS Fund and we are hugely grateful for the support that Buzzacott provided to this transaction. Matt, Alex and the rest of the team were professional throughout the process and their dedicated and flexible approach allowed the transaction to complete under a tight timescale. We will certainly look to work with Buzzacott again on future transactions and would highly recommend their services to others.

James Penney, Chairman of Darwin Alternatives

We were pleased to work so closely with the team at Darwin Alternatives and are delighted to have achieved the final outcome. It was interesting working on the Low Cost Funeral entity which has taken a leading role in acting as an online funeral director and offering prearranged funeral plan products, and overall improving the UK funeral sector.
