Quercus Corporate Finance is delighted to announce the sale of the business and assets of Camp Hopson Funerals on behalf of Camp Hopson & Co Limited.

The Quercus team advised the Board of Camp Hopson & Co Limited (“Camp Hopson”) on the sale of the business and assets of Camp Hopson Funerals to Dignity plc for an undisclosed amount.

Camp Hopson is a 5th generation family business that has been in the heart of Newbury for over 100 years. The sale of the funerals business is the third M&A transaction that Quercus have advised on for Camp Hopson over the past 18 months and clearly demonstrates our focus on building longstanding trusted adviser relationships with our clients.  Quercus previously advised on the successful sales of the group's retail operations in 2014 and their removals business earlier this year.

Neil Giles, Senior Director, said:

“We value our relationship with Camp Hopson very highly and these are excellent deals for both the group, and the management and staff of the various businesses involved.  Across three complex transactions we have sourced partners in Morley Stores (retail), Dignity plc (Funerals) and Ward Thomas (Removals) who have excellent track records of acquiring independent businesses, maintaining brands and using their expertise to develop businesses and giving staff enhanced opportunities as part of a larger group.”

Jonathan Hopson, Director of Camp Hopson added:

“Over the past 18 months we have been delighted with the advice, quality of service and the seamless manner that Quercus integrated into our team.   We are extremely grateful to them and in particular the skills they demonstrated in presenting the various businesses to prospective buyers with the focus very much on future potential rather than historical performance."
