Somerset Funeral Directors Family Run Firms

Somerset Independent Funeral Directors  Directory.

Somerset funeral directors are mostly part of big conglomerates.  Many folk would prefer dealing with a family run funeral director not than a chain disguised (with a family name over the door) as one.  We believe all of the funeral directors below are real family firms who have not yet succumbed to the corporate cheque book.  Family firms are far less common than you would think in Somerset, so please do consider the firms below.  Do let us know of any other family owned and run funeral directors in Somerset. (Back to what to do after a death.)

(Register a death in Somerset.  Probate help in Somerset.  And do ask for our free guides.  Some of these firms may have negotiated special terms with us for their clients – ask them.  You would probably get charged more for the office junior in some firms than our barrister charges!)

You can have as much involvement with the planning and holding of your farewell as you would like, or you can simply ask us to look after everything for you, leaving you free to be with family and friends in your time of need.

We can offer you advice on burials and cremations, as well as a wide choice of eco-friendly coffins. We can help you to have the service at any suitable venue, Woodland site, Church or Crematorium.

If you would like, we can also help you to arrange for a gathering afterwards along with any catering needs that might be required.

There is NO need to rush into making decisions. Our first meeting will be both informal and caring and you won’t have to make any final choices. We’ll simply talk about your thoughts and feelings, so that we can begin to understand how we might best create a funeral together that reflects their personality, character and life.

We are a completely Independent and family owned company and our aim is to provide affordable Green & Eco-friendly Contemporary or Traditional funerals.
