Cooks Funeral Directors, Chesham
About our Chesham funeral home
Our Chesham funeral directors was established in 1945, when Roy Baker and Percy Cook joined together to give the local community respectful and dignified funeral services.
We are now a well-known and valued part of Chesham, serving families from our surrounding areas, such as Newtown, Waterside, Chesham Bois, Pednor, Lye Green, Botley, Ley Hill, Hyde Heath and beyond.
For your peace and solitude, we can offer you a chapel of rest where you may spend time with your loved one leading up to the day of the funeral. We can open this at any time if you let us know in advance.
We are located very close to The Emmanuel Church and Chesham Cemetery, both of which we have strong ties with, alongside many other places of worship in our Chesham community.
Please call us whenever is convenient for you. We are always here to talk, 24 hours a day.

Cooks Funeral Directors reviews
On the day everything was done by the funeral director that l requested he went above and beyond and l am very sure my dad was looking down on us and was very proud.
We live a distance away from Chesham but Cooks were very good and dealt with all the paperwork for us without us needing to travel to Chesham to handle things.
Overall we were pleased with the funeral service and the celebrant they found for us, Katie was always kind and considerate when dealing with us as were all the staff we dealt with.
They went above and beyond by raven finding the vicar that did the funeral 10years ago.
