About our Exeter funeral home

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,

My partner sadly passed away from cancer recently. He was adamant that Mitchell Funeral Directors deal with his funeral arrangements; having used them previously when my mother passed away. They looked after us all, again, so well. Listened and advised in a gentle, compassionate manner and made a very sad, stressful situation for us all, into a beautiful and fitting send off. I would strongly recommend Mitchell's to everyone.

Martin and the team at Mitchell’s Exeter were professional, compassionate and supportive throughout the funeral arrangements.

I can’t fault their approach and service in anyway. At such a challenging time for our family they were like a close friend.

Their experience and attention to detail meant the day went as well as I could have expected given the circumstances

From our initial meeting with Sheril at Mitchells, her kindness, sensitivity, professionalism and yes,good humour, ensured the daunting process of losing our dear friend was free from any stressful complications.We were guided, but always listen to with respectful understanding and patience.In every aspect of the arrangements we had a feeling of genuine care from all of the staff....I have no hesitation in recommending this truly FIRST CLASS SERVICE

I found the staff very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. I lost my mother, who left details of the service she wanted. Sheril found the right music, and a lovely lady vicar to take the service. She was so helpful from beginning to end. I had many good comments on the service sheets, which were printed with pink orchids. I was surprised but pleased that I didn't have to pay more for having a design on them. The flowers were also ordered by Sherill who got me a good price for them. They were beautiful an smelt lovely. After the service I was given a book to take to the wake for friends an family to write in, I thought this was a lovely idea and have not known other funeral directors do this. I cannot fault the service I received at Mitchells and would recommend them to anyone else that I knew who were in need of a funeral directors.

An outstanding service, very professional but also with a personal touch. We were guided helpfully through all the stages of arranging mum's funeral, and all of our wishes were carried out beautifully. From the moment they arrived to collect mum's body throughout the whole process the staff were deeply respectful of mum and kind and considerate to us, and they made things as easy as possible for us at our difficult time. I am so glad we chose Mitchell's and would highly recommend the service.

My experience with Mitchell Funeral Directors was excellent the Sheryl was very thoughtful and very helpful thereby making decisions easier at what was a very difficult time. On the day the she was quietly efficient and again helpful in directing us where to go etc, which was very much needed.

Thank you for making a very difficult process bearable.

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.

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.
