Norfolk man opens funeral home at 22 - that's quite an undertaking!

- Watch a full report from ITV News Anglia's Rob Setchell.


A man from Norfolk says he's landed his dream job - and it's a bit different to the careers his friends are carving out.

At the tender age of 22, Jordan Young has opened his own funeral home in Norfolk.

He got a young person's business loan from the Government and opened the 'Jordan Young Independent Funeral Home' in June in his home town of Dereham.

A few people say crikey we weren't expecting someone so young but I think it's quite refreshing sometimes for people to have someone slightly different, slightly younger.

"The idea of being able to help those who're most in need is really appealing to me," said Jordan.

"It's such a rewarding job. You get such a sense of satisfaction when you can help a family. You feel like your job is really worthwhile."

Jordan has already worked at a care home, a doctor's surgery and a supermarket - but he says being there for those who've lost loved ones is his dream career.
