Guiding you through all the arrangements

6th generation of family business

The days following bereavement can be an extremely emotional time. Knowing where to begin with the funeral arrangements can often be overwhelming. That's where we can help. Our role is to guide you through the process and give you all the information you need, either in our private consultation rooms or in the privacy of your home.

From funeral planning to choosing the music for the service, the flowers, cars and coffin, we'll assist and support you every step of the way. We've been supporting the families of Staffordshire through the loss of their loved ones for almost 150 years, so you can be sure you'll always get a considerate and sympathetic funeral service from all our staff.

Golden Charter funeral plans

• Close attention paid to detail

At times of bereavement, we have served the local communities in this area since 1866. We personally know many of the families we have assisted. Only an independent family firm with its roots in the community, can offer this service with understanding and commitment. We are also triple award winning agents for Golden Charter funeral plans.
