Serving families across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire for generations.

Family-run Funeral Directors

Welcome and thank you for visiting our website, where we offer advice about our compassionate funeral services for families in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Please accept our condolences if you are visiting here because you have lost a loved one or are beginning to plan because someone is unwell.

Our website has a number of sections dealing with different aspects of planning for a funeral and the services we can offer, and you are welcome to browse through this information. However, during the Pandemic, to deal with the ever-changing circumstances faced by ourselves and the families we served, we began placing the information that those searching for advice and information needed around the time of bereavement on the home page rather than spreading it around the site. Due to the positive feedback we received about how helpful this was, we have continued this practice.

We offer a full range of services, from Unattended Cremations to unique and personalised celebrations of life. Our website is designed to provide you with information on different aspects of funeral planning, and we hope you find it helpful. As your trusted funeral directors in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, we are here to assist you every step of the way.
