A funeral in Kingsbridge
A funeral in Kingsbridge is an opportunity to celebrate the life of the one you have lost, while remembering what they meant to you, your family and friends.

A more traditional funeral, whether it is a cremation or a burial, usually begins with a funeral procession from the home of your loved one. The Hearse leads, with the cortege following behind, journeying to the service.
  • The service is held in a church or another place of worship, or at the crematorium, depending upon your wishes
  • Following the service, if the committal is being held elsewhere, the funeral procession travels to the final resting place, be it the churchyard by foot, or a cemetery or crematorium by vehicle
  • The committal takes place at the graveside or inside the crematorium, often with a prayer or some final words spoken by the presiding minister or celebrant
  • A funeral wake often follows: a gathering of family and friends at your loved one's home or a local Kingsbridge venue, marking an end to the day.
The team at our Kingsbridge funeral home will be beside you throughout, to provide support and ensure that the arrangements are to plan and on time.

The Staff were very compassionate and every consideration was given to my Mother's funeral arrangements. My contact at J D Andrews was very approachable, understanding my wishes and taking the trouble to choose the right Celebrant who would conduct the proceedings with flow and ease. The result was that the funeral went better than I could have ever expected and instead of it being a sad occasion it was a real celebration of life.
Response from J D Andrews & Son inc. Savill Funeral Directors

I thought that the service was very very helpful. The member of staff made me feel at ease immediately and as I had never had to do anything like that before I was very grateful.

At such a sad time I was supported by all the JD Andrew staff.
From the initial meeting through to the funeral, I was kept abreast of everything appertaining to the day, with many telephone conversations to ensure my complete understanding.
The day was dealt with in a very quiet, respectful and dignified manner. Every member of the party from JD Andrews went out of their way to insure that my whole family were involved and that I was kept informed of everything that was going to happen at both the church and crematorium. They went out of their way to ensure that the whole family were involved in the proceedings.
Both my father and I would like to express our complete satisfaction in the whole affair.
