About our Whitchurch funeral home
Your wellbeing matters to us and we will provide the right support when you need it. This means offering comfort, taking the time to discuss your requirements and finding out how we can make the send off a truly personal occasion. We will also ease any concerns you may have and offer guidance, tailoring the funeral to meet your wishes.
The experienced team at our funeral directors will treat you with kindness while you are in our care and ensure your loved one is tended to with dignity and respect.
In 2018, we changed the name of our funeral home from Whitchurch Funeral Service to R. Davies & Son, continuing to provide the same high standard of service as we have done since 2010.
We can be found on Gilda Parade, which runs adjacent to Wells Road (A37). From here, we are able to offer our funeral care to the whole of Whitchurch, as well as the surrounding areas of Bristol. This includes Brislington, Stockwood and Knowle.
We are always here to talk, 24 hours a day. For a dignified funeral for your loved one, call us today on 01275 833441.

Reviews of our services
On the day David and Emily drove us to the Crem and acted with great dignity and were very helpful to my Mum.
Everyone commented on the service that it was just as Dad would've liked. The Celebrant brought everything together well.
Highly recommended and made easier as funeral plan in place.
She went above and beyond what we expected which made the funeral easier to cope with.
