Doves Funeral Branches in South Africa
May 4, 2016
Every business starts out small and for Doves, established in 1883, it was no different. Today there are dozens of Doves Funeral branches around the country.
It was in 1989 that the company was purchased from Metropolitan Life and changed its name to HT Group. The name then changed to Doves Group in 2004 and today Doves Group is one of the biggest funeral directing companies in Southern Africa. There are Dove’s funeral branches in just about every city, town and village in South Africa.
One of the reasons that Doves has grown so enormously is that they have made sure to represent themselves solidly online. They know that in the 21st century, the first place that people look for information is on a website. Online information can affect how people view your company, and Doves, with their many different branches dotted throughout South Africa and their many contact details, are connected to their members 24/7. Doves know that their customers are the very reason they have grown because satisfied customers spread the news of good services and products.
Doves Funeral Branches in all 9 Provinces
Today the Group runs a national network of more than 160 Doves Funeral branches in each of South Africa’s nine provinces. Each of these provinces offers several branches, ensuring there is always a Doves Funeral Home close to you. Most of these branches have the means to offer you a range of different services and products such as coffins, the arrangement of the funeral, claims as well as other funeral administration services.
