Coombes & Sons Funeral Directors, Bovey Tracey
About our Bovey Tracey funeral home
We understand that this will be a difficult time, which is why our caring team of funeral directors will be on hand to offer comfort and support. We are here to listen, as much as anything, taking the time to learn about you, your family and your loved one. This helps us to shape the funeral to how you want it.
The loss of somebody special can lead to a mixture of emotions, as well as uncertainty as to what to do next. We will provide guidance and advice, when you need it, so you are not left to make important decisions alone and whatever your preferences are for the ceremony, we will arrange them accordingly.
This means that regardless of whether you want a religious or humanist funeral, a traditional service or something a little more contemporary – a woodland burial, for instance – or even a send off that is uniquely personal to you and your loved one, we will endeavour to see your wishes through.
Established in 1807, Coombes & Sons Funeral Directors has been a trusted local presence for over 200 years, serving many generations of the same families. We can be found on Fore Street, in the centre of Bovey Tracey, placing us within easy reach of nearby towns and villages in Devon, including Chudleigh, Chudleigh Knighton, Coldeast and Kingsteignton.
If you want to spend some time with your loved one, our funeral home has a chapel of rest in which you can do so privately and in comfort. If it is more convenient for you, it can be opened outside of normal hours.
There is always a sympathetic ear ready to listen, so call us any time of the day or night and we will be here for you.

When someone dies, the first steps will depend on how and where the person passed away. Our step-by-step guides will walk you through the practical steps. For additional support and personal advice, please get in touch with us.
You don't have to make an appointment at our funeral homes. However, doing so will ensure that someone can be available to cater to your needs. When arranging a funeral, our Funeral Directors are happy to visit you in your own home, if required.
Third party funeral costs are additional charges which we will manage for you and attach to your single invoice. Get in touch with us to confirm costs and plan a funeral to fit your budget.
If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.
Dignity Funeral Plans let you pay for your funeral in advance and at today's price. It's a way of taking control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the funeral plan upfront.
Reviews of our services
They did a wonderful and very professional job at a difficult time.
On the day the service proceeded with dignity and respect in a truly professional and seamless manner, which was a fitting tribute to my late mother.
Each and every member of my family were so impressed with how the final day went.
Coombes and Sons reinforced the need and benefits of Local and small community services. They don't make you feel like "Just another customer". They will go the extra distance to make sure the "Final day" is special and unique, to you.
