What we offer
- The option of a dignified funeral now and a memorial service later
- Knowledgeable guidance and informed advice throughout the arrangement process
- Funeral services tailored to meet your wishes and needs
- Local knowledge of Kingsbridge and the surrounding area of Devon
- Cremation and burial services
- Services for all religions, beliefs and cultures
- A chapel of rest for visiting your loved one
- Hearses and other funeral vehicles, along with bespoke choices
- Funeral memorials, headstones and other tributes
- Peace of mind with prepaid funeral plans
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.

Reviews of our services
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.
