About Us

Bracher Brothers Funeral Directors in Sherborne provides compassionate funeral care to the communities of north west Dorset. We are here to help you through this difficult time.

With our first funeral conducted in 1866, Bracher Brothers has been serving the families of Dorset for over 150 years. The experience gained and passed down from generation to generation, ensures that we can provide your loved one with the send off you want.

Our team of funeral directors will offer support and sympathy, guiding you through the choices that are available and helping you to shape the funeral to your preferences. We will also provide advice, drawing upon the knowledge our longstanding association with funeral care has given us, so that you are not left to make important decisions alone. Your wishes are what matter to us and we will endeavour to meet them to the best of our ability.

We can be found at the junction of the Marston Road and Newell (A30) in Sherborne, with our location making us easily accessible to the surrounding community. We are also within reach of towns and villages further afield, including Bradford Abbas, Henstridge, Milborne Port, Stalbridge and Sturminster Newton.

Our funeral home also has a chapel of rest, the dedication ceremony of which was conducted in 1964 by the then Archdeacon of Dorset, Edward Leslie Seager. Here, you and your family can spend some time with your loved one in a peaceful and private environment. Our commitment to you means we will also open the chapel of rest outside of normal hours, if it is more convenient.

It would be our honour to arrange a funeral that truly reflects your loved one’s life. When you feel ready to talk, we will be here.

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.

    Everything about the funeral was well thought out. It was a memorable day and the people attending found it a fitting farewell to my mum. My dad was delighted with the order of service, however I found the formats limited in relation to my mum's personality. The process was very well explained and sympathetically. No-one else knew, but the music chosen at the start of the ceremony was not the right version. So perhaps checking the music clips would have avoided this. But this is a minor quibble in this case. The picture for the coffin was a nice unexpected touch, but as she was a photographer and most of the people attending were photographers I could not use it due to the low resolution of the print quality. Again I liked the idea of the condolence book - but no-one used it. I have already recommended the Dignity funeral plan to two other people. Many thanks.

    Contacting a Funeral Director is not something we do very often and when we do it is because we have lost a dear and treasured family member. My father had already paid for a funeral plan so he had already made some of the decisions which was a great help. The staff at Bracher Brothers were compassionate and understanding, they talked us through the funeral process making sure we understood and were happy with the arrangements. I have never thought much about the occupation of a funeral director which must be very difficult sometimes when you are arranging funerals for families who have just lost their dearest relative. We found Bracher Brothers offered an excellent service at a time when the family is mourning a loved one.
