We are personally invested in the well-being of the people in our community and are here to support and advise you if needed.

We try to help as many local events and charities as possible, and have supplied Ely’s new school with plants for their garden, provided Christmas meals for the homeless and are always ready to show our support in attendance.

If there is anything we can do to ease any concern you may have or make you feel more comfortable, please do not hesitate to let us know. You can call us at any time; our phone lines are always open for you

Nothing was too much trouble for Michael at Ely. I wanted to visit my mum on bank holiday Monday, not a problem. Michael took all our wishes on board and made them happen. He was extremely professional including his team on the extremely hot day we buried my mum. Thank you for making the hardest day of my life manageable.

Our funeral director was absolutely brilliant when organising my uncles funeral. Nothing was too much trouble and he made sure the day ran smoothly by taking time to run through routes etc beforehand with me - all little extra touches which we really appreciated. Ely Funeral Directors also looked after my Dad when he passed away, I wouldn’t use anyone else.
