The Directors of Stray Business Services Ltd, Ella and Helen have worked together in various roles for over a decade and continue to enjoy working together to provide an excellent accountancy service, with a smile!

Ella Cooper Stray Business Services


I am a member of the institute of chartered accountants and association of accounting technicians. Since qualifying as a chartered accountant in 2003 I have worked in both industry and practise acquiring knowledge and expertise in business management and all areas of accountancy, taxation and business strategies.

Outside of work, being mum to a cricket mad ‘young man’ keeps me very busy!

Helen Straker Stray Business Services


I am a member of the association of accounting technicians.

Working in industry within varied roles has given me an understanding of all practical aspects of business accounting and administration. This together with my practise experience has enhanced my knowledge of accounting and taxation.

When not at work, I can be found enjoying a Zumba class, walking Buster the dog or watching my ‘not so young’ men playing football!
