Serving Derby and the surrounding areas since 1858


As Managing Director I am pleased to represent the fifth generation of our family business, established back in 1858. Over the years we have always prided ourselves in offering a very high standard of service. Today there are over 20 members of staff providing the traditional, dignified, quality of service, which the people of Derby and the surrounding areas have come to expect – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

As you are visiting our website, I appreciate you may currently be going through a very difficult time. Please be assured that we will do our upmost to help you in any way we can. We have endeavoured to give you as much information as possible, to provide answers to the questions you undoubtedly have, but if there is something we have failed to answer then please don’t hesitate to call.

For those of you who are visiting for other reasons, perhaps for information on our Pre-Paid funeral plans, or our Bereavement Group or Grief Journey Programme, we hope your find our website informative but again, please do call us if you don’t find what you are looking for.

I sincerely hope we can make a difficult time a little easier.
