Oldest family run business in Essex,
serving Chelmsford and the surrounding area for over 390 years

"Let our family look after your family"

Why choose us?

As an independent family owned business we are able to offer personal and sympathetic guidance through all the formalities of arranging the funeral for a loved one, either at our offices, or in the comfort of the family home. 

We are only a phone call away being freely available 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. Chelmsford, Essex is where we live, work and have a long-term commitment to our community and appreciate local customs, traditions and expectations.

When the funeral arrangements are made by one of our family, they will be the one to take you through the whole process and conduct the funeral. We feel this is a more personal touch for you and ourselves. 

We are the only Funeral Directors now remaining in the area who can offer bespoke coffins and caskets, made for our clients’ individual requirements on site, an important fact in these days of ‘mass production’.

All funerals are carried out in a traditional and dignified manner by the use of modern Hearses and Limousines.
