The locally owned funeral director


The independent funeral profession has a long and proud history of personal service to local communities. Carrying on the family tradition is a way of life for many independent funeral directors. They are deeply committed to upholding professional standards. 

Why an independent funeral director is better


All our attention is concentrated on satisfying the needs of our clients. We are not distracted or bound by corporate rules; we are flexible and responsive to your needs. This is our business. Our neighbourhood is your neighbourhood, this is where we live and work. When you need us we'll be here. Large concerns answer to shareholders, we answer to you. 

A personal relationship

Just as you do, we turn to our local firms for service and products. We choose to do business with people we trust.

Whenever possible, we also support local charities and community organisations. We take every effort to be involved in our community and to create the kind of personal relationship which leads to individual, sensitive service.

We will always be here when you need us, 24 hours a day, every day of the year. 

Arranging the funeral


We believe that each funeral should be as individual as the person who has died. We therefore offer a wide range of services, which can be tailored to the wishes, requirements and needs of each family.

We will give you advice on all matters relating to the funeral arrangements and give you a choice of options where appropriate. In particular we will advise you on: 

• Registering the death 
• Cemetery and crematorium regulations 
• Type of ceremony e.g. church service, non-religious service
• Coffin/casket selection 
• Disbursements e.g. crematorium/cemetery fees, floral tributes, newspaper notices. 
• Additional service e.g. limousines, horse-drawn funerals, cremated remains caskets, memorials 
• Claims from the Social Fund (if applicable) 

In return, you will need to give us necessary information in order for us to complete the funeral arrangements. Once we have all the details required, we will give you a written estimate & confirmation.
