THE HISTORY OF HOW IT ALL STARTED
Malcolm has worked within the funeral business for over 70 years. He left school in 1947 and went straight to work for an independent funeral director, in his home town of Abertillery. His early duties were many and varied; from cleaning the hearse and cars to ‘pitching’ the inside of the coffins he was learning to construct. Malcolm had a two year period away from Abertillery, and the firm, in order to carry-out 2 years on National Service. After serving his two years Malcolm returned to Abertillery, rejoined his previous firm and continued there quite happily until 1966 when the offer and acceptance of a position with the Co-operative Funeral Service in Swansea, working as area manager, came about. In the late 1970’s a permanent move to Llanelli to oversee the now Co-op owned Thomas Morgan & Son was offered. This was a position he and his wife Mary were to hold for a number of years until Malcolm decided to open his own funeral home with the help of his wife Mary, and son Paul. They felt the time was right, after working for a large national company for so many years. Malcolm J. Silcox & Son was set up in 1986, in Long Row, off Swansea Road in Llanelli.
