Our Funeral Services

Our services start when you contact us, whether by telephone or by calling personally at any of our branches Cradley Heath, Halesowen, Bartley Green or Castle Bromwich. We cover the whole of Sandwell, Dudley and Birmingham along with all surrounding areas and can assist you with all of your funeral needs.

On initial contact regarding a death we will ask for preliminary details, where upon if the deceased has died we will advise the conveyance procedure of the deceased to our private chapels of rest. We would then ask, for a time and place to suit the family for the funeral director to call and arrange the funeral.

We have a wide selection of coffins and memorial stones available across our offices and we will assist you throughout the selection process.

We have private chapels of rest at all our offices, family members and friends are welcome to visit at any time if so desired to see a loved one.

We offer a wide range of funeral services from simple basic funerals, to large elaborate services. We feel our costs are very reasonable and we are happy to match any written estimate from any other funeral home. Our fees and charges can be found here.

Unlike other funeral homes, we are happy to accept families that are making a claim to the DWP for help towards funeral costs.

The company was first established in 1909. Currently in its fourth generation of ownership, under the personal attention of Ross, Greg, Jodie & Trevor Hickton. The family and staff are here to guide and support you with the upmost care and guidance following the loss of a loved one.

Considering the recent publicity looking in to funeral costings, along with the government investigation we feel that as someone arranging a funeral it should be considered more than just the cost element when choosing a funeral director to care for you, and your loved ones.
