Our Family Are Here, To Help Yours...

The Hickton family have been funeral directors since 1909, when the family business started in Cradley Heath in the Black Country. This has been achieved through four generations of the same family working in, and owning the business.

The company has funeral home branches across the West Midlands, enabling them to serve all areas with care, dignity and respect. Many funeral directors in the region have sold their companies to much larger corporate entities, losing the family ownership and care only a family owned business can give.

The Hickton family saw this happening and grew their business to ensure families have a family owned funeral director to turn to in their time of need. They uphold their age old traditions with a modern 21st century view on death, bereavement and business management.

Originally the local undertakers of Cradley Heath, they are now one of the leading funeral directors in the West Midlands with funeral home branches in Cradley Heath, Halesowen, Bartley Green, Castle Bromwich, Sheldon, Penn and Codsall. The family also own Jones Memorials of Dudley, a long established memorial stone masonry company dating back to 1881, able to provide quality memorial head stones and grave services.
