To Make a 

As your funeral directors, we are here to help and advise in whatever way we can. We are dedicated professionals who provide a service to you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. From the first call to the completion of the funeral, we provide personal attention and supervision of all the arrangements. Our clients have the peace of mind of speaking to and seeing the same funeral director and staff throughout.


It is a rare privilege to be a funeral director, to stand in a sensitive position at a crucial time in the midst of your family, knowing that the quality of our service and reputation will help you all through the difficult time of a bereavement.

It is not our policy to impose urgency or apply undue pressure on you or your family. It is important for many people to reflect the personality and character of the deceased within the arrangements. This often requires a lot of time and thought.


Our services start when you contact us and often extend way beyond the day of the funeral. We will help you through all the stages of arrangements to make sure that the day of the funeral runs as smoothly as possible.


We will liaise with clergy, church and crematorium, and organise floral tributes, catering, orders of service, hearse and limousine hire as well as the all the necessary legal documentation.
