About us
Connolly Embalming Services (C.E.S) is owned and managed by Stephen Connolly. Having acquired over 15 years experience working in past funeral homes, dealing with all aspects of the business, which has enabled me to acquire a high level of expertise based on commitment, trust and professionalism, which to this day is the foundation and cornerstone of our services.

Having enrolled and attended an embalming school set out and regulated by the I.E.B.E. and the B.I.E. I attained a distinction in my theoretical examinations and went on to sit and pass my two practical examinations in Telford, England which gained me acceptance and successful membership into the British Institute of Embalmers, of which I belong to the Northern Ireland Division and abide to the strict Code Of Ethics. Following this I was presented with the Robert Connolly Memorial Cup for having achieved the highest practical marks in Northern Ireland for 2014.

The sole purpose of our services is to provide a modern freelance embalming service to our clients within the funeral profession across Northern Ireland and the surrounding border areas. The services that are offered and provided are unique to the funeral director, in that we come to your funeral home or place of death if appropriate, saving you any unnecessary travelling, allowing you the precious time to carry out the funeral arrangements with the bereaved family, knowing that you have a fully qualified and registered B.I.E. Embalmer working on your behalf.
