Exeter Funeral Directors

At Mitchell Funeral Directors in Exeter, we will arrange a heartfelt funeral personal to you and your family. If you have experienced the loss of a loved one, our sympathetic team is here to help.

For more than 100 years, we have provided funerals in Exeter, a role we have always fulfilled with integrity and kindness. When you ask us to arrange a funeral, we will ensure your wishes are met.

You may already have in mind the type of funeral you want, but don't worry if you haven't. Our team of Exeter funeral directors will be available to offer guidance and advice, as well as help ease any of your concerns. Whatever your request, be it a religious or a humanist funeral, a traditional service or a more modern offering, we will endeavour to make it happen, creating a unique tribute to your loved one.

Since 1860, we have been a part of Exeter, originally in the building trade before moving into funeral arrangement at the start of the twentieth century. In the intervening 100+ years, we have provided support and funeral care to families throughout the community, always ensuring we adhere to the values we were founded upon: kindness and understanding.

Once out of necessity and once out of convenience we have moved premises. Our first funeral home in Exeter opened on Summerland Street, where it remained until it was destroyed during the Blitz of 1942. We subsequently moved to Old Tiverton Road, with the chapels and workshops based at our present site. During our time at both locations, we were known by the family name of W Mitchell & Son. This changed in 1988, when it was decided to move everything to the current premises and the name was shortened to Mitchell.

Our Exeter funeral directors can be found on King William Street, near to the main shopping parade. This central location means we are accessible to all areas within the city, such as Exwick, Heavitree and St Thomas. We are also within reach of nearby Devon villages, including Cowley and Exminster.

Allow us to take care of the arrangements for your loved one’s funeral. We are available to listen 24 hours, call us today.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,995 + third party costs, without compromising on the quality of the service that is delivered. Or our Full Service funeral can be tailored just how you wish, whether that be a traditional ceremony or a colourful celebration of life.

Call us today on 01392 272682 to talk through your personal requirements.

    Astounding service. Sheril and the team went above and beyond to support us during what has been an extremely painful period for our family. We really felt that they were with us every step of the journey, and they looked after my mother and grandmother with love, respect and dignity. We will never forget your care and support for our family, Sheril and team, and we are so grateful for all you have done. Hannah, Nick and family.

    I had anticipated a good service as Mitchells had dealt with my father's funeral some years ago. I was not disappointed as Sheryl also helped me to make the necessary decisions but was also considerate of my feelings and nothing was too much trouble.

    Our mum paid and arranged her funeral, my sister and I did the finishing touches. We were very well looked after, nothing was too much trouble, and at the most darkest time sheril made it alot easier for us. We felt like we were her only clients. I would highly recommend Mitchells.
    Thank you

    Martin was very informative, empathetic and caring with all our arrangements.
    Chas, the Minister who led the service was perfect with everything he said about dear Auntie.
    Then when we had her ashes scattered, yet another lovey Minister who read a beautiful poem about Rainbows.
    Amazing care for our wonderful Auntie.

    We live in Newcastle and my Aunt who passed away lived in Seaton and the funeral was to take place in Exeter. So all the arrangements had to be done by phone and Email. We found Mitchell Funeral Directors professional, compassionate and very helpful in dealing with my aunts passing. I can’t speak highly enough of them. They treated my aunt with dignity and respect and kept us informed with every part of the process. Should anyone find themselves in the unfortunate position of needing this kind of service. I highly recommend them. Thank you very much once again
