"We would like to express our deepest thanks for all you did after the loss of our dear husband/father. Your kindness and professionalism were incredible. The fact that you all wore 'silly socks' without prompting blew us away!
You are all very special people
Thank you again"
Kay, Matt and Sam (Nov 2016)

Essex Based Family Funeral Directors
As a community based service we are experienced in helping families and friends create a meaningful celebration of the life
of their loved one. Our experience will enable us to talk you through all the practical arrangements as well as to discuss
more personal and heartfelt issues.
We are committed to the reality that affordability need not come at the cost of professionalism or care. Our dedication to remaining
independent* means we can continue to offer a flexible, personal service to our clients and to be a gentle, guiding hand through
a difficult time. As well as providing traditional and personalised funeral services for our local community we are also committed to supporting the work of those who have cared for the departed and for their family and friends. Among other things we offer recognition and support for health workers and carers who have given exemplary service, and we make a personal donation to the
charity of choice for each family.
*What are the key benefits of using an independent funeral service?
1) An independent funeral director does not have to pay shareholders and head office staff so
they are considerably less expensive whilst offering a more personal and focussed service,
2) If you use a local, independent funeral service your money will stay in the local community
rather than disappearing to a distant head office.
