Our history

On the 11th October 1899, the first JR Carrigan took out an agency with Eagle Star Insurance in a small tobacconist shop in Burbage, Leicestershire. To conduct chiefly life and fire insurance business, and from that date there has always been a JR Carrigan involved in the insurance family business. The present Mr JR Carrigan has been in the business for over 50 years.

Although there are no more JR Carrigan’s to continue the business, his daughter Sarah Carrigan has been in the business for over 20 years carrying on the family name. Mr Carrigan deals with all forms of insurance and has built up a reputation in dealing with claims and in this department he considers a good claim service is of greater importance than a small saving in premium. The business has gone through two world wars and hopes the business will continue for many more years.

What’s next for JR Carrigan & Son?

On 1st March 2020 the oldest independent insurance broker in Leicestershire joined the ClassicLine family.

There is no change to service as Rob and his team have just moved up the road to 138 Castle Street and they look forward servicing all new and existing customers.
