Why Choose an Independent Family Funeral Director?

Personal Pride.

All our attention is concentrated on satisfying the needs of our friends and neighbours in our local community. We are not distracted or bound by corporate rules handed down from head office and shareholders. We are flexible and responsive to your needs. This is our business.
Our neighbourhood is your neighbourhood and we take personal pride in serving you well, which we have been doing for four generations. Every family that we help receives a completely unique and personalised service, with attention to the finest details that make the funeral special and memorable at such a difficult time.

Devoted to families, not profits

Large corporations answer to shareholders….We answer to you. In our truly family owned firm there is no pressure from head office to increase profits. We know our business will do well, when we serve you well. We may also offer our services for a lot less than some national groups, as we have no corporate shareholders to appease.

Knowledge of local traditions.

Funeral traditions vary greatly around the country. We know and appreciate local customs and expectations, because we have served in this community for so many years. On the other hand, the staff and management assigned to a funeral home from a national company may be from another area. Ignorance of local traditions might cause disappointment when expectations are not met.

We are proud to be the only remaining family run funeral service in Brixham and Paignton, serving Torbay and South Devon
