James Brown

James Brown MBE is the retired managing director of James Brown and Sons, Funeral Directors. He is married to Sandra and they have two grown-up children, Beverley and James.

Q. Can you tell us something about your background?

A. I lived in east Belfast since my birth in 1944 until I married in 1970. My parents, Jim and Grace Brown, were both born in east Belfast and lived in the Ballyhackamore area all their married life. They had four children: Stanley, Irene, Albert and me. Sadly, Stanley and Irene died relatively young, but thankfully Albert is still alive and resides in Knock. After I married Sandra, our first home was in the Castlereagh Hills, then we built a house outside Newtownards before moving back to Belfast in 1980.
