What we do

As experienced funeral directors, we take care of everything that needs to be done when someone dies, while offering you advice and support in the arrangement of the funeral.

Types of funeral can vary from the traditional to the modern (including eco-friendly). We provide all of the services that you would expect from a Funeral Director (or Undertaker), and also some you may not be familiar with.

Our role is to coordinate all the things that need to be done when someone dies. Also we see it as our duty to help you understand what needs to happen as the funeral draws near.

We provide tailored funeral services that can be designed to meet your wishes down to the very last detail. We will work closely with you, guiding you through every step of the process, from registering a death to choosing a coffin and making arrangements for a suitable venue. Having worked within the local community for many years, we have established a reputation for sensitivity and compassionate service.

Dear All

Thanks to everyone involved in taking care of my dad, and arranging his funeral,

Thanks for your kindness, friendliness and professionalism when dealing with my mum and I.

Thank You for the way you prepared my dad for chapel, when he passed away in hospital, he didnt look like my dad. We were dreading seeing him in chapel, but thanks to you he looked beautiful and like my dad again.

To the funeral director for making sure that everything went smoothly and again your kindness and professionalism towards my mum and I.

Without doubt, losing dad is the worst thing I have ever faced. Your support has helped my mum and I enormousley over the past 10 days since he passed away.
