Branch information

As the longest established funeral directors in Lichfield, our reputation has been built up and maintained over 200 years. This team continues to provide the same professional and personal service today.

Our premises on 25 Bird Street, Lichfield are where our founders, Frank Martin and John Wait, originally started as furniture and cabinet makers. As with a number of carpenters at that time, they saw an opportunity to start directing funerals to meet the needs of their local neighbourhood, stabling horses and carriages in nearby Lombard Street.

Starting life as 'The Unicorn' public house, 25 Bird Street is now a listed building, and still retains a beautiful and unique Stoke porcelain sign above the entrance.

A recent interior refurbishment has enhanced the character and heritage of the building, ensuring that families are offered an environment fitting for the importance of the services we provide. We offer a choice of chapels of rest and comfortable arranging facilities, enabling customers to stay as long as they want depending upon their needs and wishes.

Today F M & J Wait has an experienced team of funeral directors, who are recognised within the city for their professionalism, compassion, personal service and attention to detail before, during and after the funeral arrangements.

Opening Hours

Our opening hours are 9.00am - 5.00pm Monday to Friday, however our staff are available 24 hours a day on the above telephone number if you require our services outside of these hours.
