Funeral directors CS Bowyer held an open day to celebrate their return to Bradford on Avon after being flooded out on Christmas Eve.

The business has operated from its sister branch in Trowbridge since December 2013.

Nearly 20 coffins had to be thrown away, two cars were ruined and it took three months for the building to dry out.

Funeral director Denise Hamlin said: “It is exciting to be back.

“People have been keen to look around, view our funeral plans and see what we have to offer.”

People were able to view the refurbished arranging rooms, the Chapel of Rest and the mortuary, and see the new fleet of cars. There was also the opportunity to ride in the horse-drawn carriage.
