About our Chesterfield funeral home

We, Crowder & Alderson Funeral Directors, have been serving the families of Chesterfield since mid 19th century. At first as Alderson Funeral Service, then as Crowder & Alderson when Graham Crowder joined us in 1963.

Through all the changes, we have stayed true to the principles set by our founder, Henry Alderson; compassion, respect, high quality of service and total commitment to the families in our care.

You and your family are our top priority. What matters to you, matters to us. Let us help ease your concerns when it comes to arranging a meaningful and personal farewell for your loved one. We will look after all the arrangements, so that you can focus on looking after yourself and your family.

How you want to say goodbye to your loved one is completely your choice. Just let us know what your preferences are, whether that is a cremation, a religious funeral, a contemporary service or a bespoke ceremony, and of any personal touches you want to include, this could be a special song, poem, hymn, flowers or donations.

Nothing is too much trouble. If you cannot come in to see us, don’t worry, we will come to see you in the comfort of your home. We have two individual chapels of rest, should you wish to spend time with your loved one before the day of the funeral. If you wish to visit outside of normal hours, let us know and we will happily open our funeral home for you.

You are not alone. We are here to help you, day or night. Just give us a call. We will be honoured to help you in your time of need.

Crowder and Alderson helped to arrange my late mother's funeral. They didn't try to sell me the most dearest funeral, they helped me to work to a budget, I could have in the end afforded more but at the time I wasn't sure. Staff were pleasant and caring, they listened to us and didn't try to rush us. The lady who facilitated the funeral was really great and caring, and allowed us to do certain things on the day on the funeral. All the staff were great.
The only thing I would say would be to give ppl the choice to select a different casket if they so wished to pay the extra. The casket my mum had was ok, but you definitely have to make sure you have flowers on the top. In all tho I would recommend Crowder and Alderson to Anyone.
