Welcome and thank you for visiting our web site.

When you suffer a bereavement, a funeral for a member of your family is the most difficult day of your life. Everything your family and friends ever thought about a loved one is expressed on that day.

When someone dies it comes as a great shock. Sometimes the death may be expected, but nothing prepares you for the emotional shock of losing someone close.

As your funeral directors, we are here to help and advise in whatever way we can. We are dedicated professionals who provide a personal service to you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

It is a rare privilege to be a funeral director, to stand in a sensitive position at a crucial time in the midst of your family, knowing that the quality of our service and reputation will help you through this most difficult time in your lives.

This brochure is an extension to the specialist information that the funeral director will discuss with you. It allows you to sit in the privacy of your own home and reflect on the information you have been given, and to raise any further questions you may have about complementary or additional services we can provide. It is not our policy to impose urgency or apply undue pressure on you or your family.

It is important for many people to reflect the personality and character of the deceased within the arrangements and this often requires time and thought to do so.


The premises have been constantly improved upon to provide families with the best possible funeral home in Northampton including a spacious reception area for families to reflect while paying their last respects to their loved ones, a large car park next to the main front doors, a large remembrance room and books containing every funeral conducted by the company since its start.
