We are caring experienced empathetic trusted independent compassionate local knowledgeable reliable family professional discreet

When you need the services of a funeral director, we’re here, and with our long tradition of discreet and caring service to the Dacorum community, you can be sure that your instructions are safe in our hands.

We believe that funerals should give a person’s family and friends an opportunity to mark their life and passing. It should be personal, special, and as unique as the individual.

We don’t do funeral “packages” – although on this site you will find examples of the types of funerals we most frequently arranage and pricing information as mandated by the CMA. Instead, the funeral you arrange for your loved one will be bespoke, and tailored to your specifications. Each funeral starts with us listening to you to ascertain your requirements. It doesn’t matter if you know what you want, or even what options are available. We will ask you questions and combine your answers with our expertise and experience, and then advise and guide you, so that together we’ll ensure that everything is as you want it to be.
