We are an independent family company committed to providing the highest standard of care and service to each family that we serve. Our company has grown through establishing a high reputation and through personal recommendations providing a high standard of care and concern to families past and present.

We believe that each funeral should be as individual as the person who has passed away. We, therefore, offer a wide choice of services which can be tailored to the needs, wishes and requirements of each family.  The care taken in providing these services has helped us establish a highly trusted and personally recommended family of funeral directors.  We have expect advice on hand with regards to DWP claims and work with Funeral Safe to offer Funeral Finance.

As professional and compassionate funeral directors, we are conscious of the responsibility, trust and confidence bestowed upon us. Our staff are available at all times, day or night – and therefore even outside normal office hours, we will be at your service. A full traditional service is offered to all of our clients.

We have a new fleet of Jaguar and Bentley Limousines with all our staff dressed in uniform. We believe all our families should be provided with the best, but at a competitive price, as we understand the financial burden placed onto families.

We also offer a full Monumental Masonry service.  Our team of highly skilled masons have combined skills and knowledge of all aspects of the Memorial industry and  can produce both standard memorials and also those to client’s specification and are among the best in the industry. Our memorial masons are fully qualified. With the Masonry side being accredited by B.R.A.M.M (British Register of Accredited Monumental Masons).

Finally we are centrally located, just off the Arboretum traffic lights in Walsall and have customer parking available.

We are also only 500 yards from the Walsall Registrar’s office.
