Coronavirus update 31st March 2020
As social distancing requirements continue, our receptions are now closed to the public except by appointment. If you require our advice or assistance, please telephone whichever one of our funeral homes you wish to deal with, and we will assist you over the phone, making an appointment to come into the office only if required.
If you have an appointment to visit us, please ring the doorbell and wait for a member of staff.
In view of the restricted service we are able to offer we have produced a special brochure which excludes the services and items we are no longer able to supply, and explains some of the restrictions which both ourselves and bereaved families are facing. This document can be downloaded below.
On 25th March, special measures were authorised to streamline the process of Registration of a Death, and allow registration to take place without face to face contact. Please download our advice leaflet here.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Gillotts Funeral Directors have been arranging funerals for families across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire for generations.
We serve a wide area from five funeral homes in Eastwood, Kimberley, Heanor, Stapleford and Selston.
People may be more familiar with our former names; Eastwood and District Funeral Service, Kimberley Funeral Service and Gillotts Funeral Service. In November 2015, we united our funeral homes under a single name; Gillotts Funeral Directors, to reflect our identity as a family business. The business continues to be owned and managed by The Eastwood Funeral Partnership; Barry and Elaine Hutsby, Joanne Hutsby and Anthony Topley.
We can be contacted 24 hours a day when someone dies and our highly experienced team of funeral directors and arrangers are on hand to help with every aspect of managing the practical arrangements.
