About Us

Donald Matthew Hay established 'DM Hay' in 1955 to serve the needs of local churches. Operating from a shop in Castle Street close to Exeter Cathedral he established a thriving business. Although Donald retired in 1997, the business continued to grow and following its acquisition by Trade Advance Ltd in 2004 moved into larger premises to develop the growing mail order side of the business.

DM Hay is a major supplier of church candles and consumables to traditional churches all over the UK. The business is focussed on sourcing and supplying the most in-demand candles and consumables. Competitive pricing, quantity discounts and loyalty benefits allow churches to make significant savings by buying astutely and in bulk. Orders can be placed online, by email or over the phone. Our service approach is no nonsense - we simply aim to process orders quickly with the minimum of fuss. We deliver over 95% of orders within 2-3 days.
