This website has been set up to give you honest information in your time of need.

All the funeral directors listed on this site are proud to be independent family businesses.

In all forms of business today there are big, international companies that have made their profits by taking over small firms. The funeral profession is no exception.

Many businesses have been swallowed up by the giants. The trouble is, there usually isn't any change of name to tell you the difference. Also this isn't always apparent when you read their adverts, speak to them or visit their premises. We don't feel this is fair.

It makes it hard for you to distinguish between the family-owned firm and the conglomerate. Without asking, you might never know if the owners your family has trusted over the years continue to make the decisions which will affect the service you receive when you need to make funeral arrangements.

When you entrust a funeral director with the responsibility of looking after you and
your loved one we feel you should know exactly who you are dealing with.
