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.

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.
