We are professional funeral directors, who help you plan and conduct a personal funeral. We work with you, so the funeral reflects your family's style and values, and the life of the person who has died. We help with choices, information, and guidance so the funeral is meaningful to you, and you get exactly what you want. You can have as much - or as little - involvement as you would like. We will help you plan a funeral in advance, and on pre-payment plans. Any enquiry is welcome ... ...
What you can expect
A very personally managed, full service Funeral Directors in Stroud and around.
Working in collaboration with you we will make sure you think about and then get exactly what you want, and that you feel confident that you have done it all right, with no regrets afterwards about the farewell you designed.
You can expect a heartfelt, and well researched 'green' policy.
It may help you know that our interest extends beyond the type of coffin to include the whole funeral, from how we understand and treat the person who has died, to the kind of food you want at the gathering afterwards, and what happens to the flowers from the coffin. As well as every detail that goes into making what you might consider to have been a 'good funeral'.
We are transparent about the cost of things, and you can ask us any questions and know we will be clear and kind and straight with the answers.
How did we do?
We care that the family feel good about how they did the funeral; perhaps make good new memories .......... but at least know they arranged a proper farewell for that one person that you knew and loved. Our job is to guide and advise and walk with you - and make sure it goes exactly as you wanted it - or better; and we are good at it! We care; we have the experience; and we have interesting and appropriate ideas. We have found that most people want a funeral that reflects the individual life of the person they loved; we listen, explore, encourage and help. You probably know you no longer need to follow the old Victorian rules, but in traditional funeral directors you are often given a range of services off the peg. We start from the beginning - "What was she/he like?" So we can then guide you through ideas and personalised choices so you all feel you have hit the spot with your decisions - even to say \"that was a good funeral\" and ....... \"she would have loved it!\"

"My mother's death is sad ..................the memory of her funeral is a great comfort; my father's funeral was conventional and I never felt it did him justice. I'm so glad he was part of my mother's ceremony and is with her now. Thank you for making it possible."
