Weekend Opening hours


As your funeral director we are here to help and advise you in whatever way we can. We are dedicated professionals who provide a personal service to you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Our business began in Bow in the East End of London in 1900. We expanded into Thundersley, Essex in 1915 and then established ourselves in Rayleigh High Street in the early 1930's - where we have remained ever since. We are rumoured to be the longest surviving business in Rayleigh High Street today!
In November 2010 we opened up an office on The Broadway, Thorpe Bay which has allowed us the oppertunity to better serve the people of Southend, Shoeburyness, Southchurch and the Thorpe Bay area.

We are now into our fourth generation as family funeral directors and over 50% of our staff are family members. All of our family and staff feel the same, that it is a rare privilege to be a funeral director, to stand in the midst of your family, knowing that the quality of our service and reputation will help you through what may be the most difficult time in your lives.
