About our Laindon funeral home

At Butler & English Funeral Directors, we have been serving the Laindon community since the late 1960's. Our funeral home, previously located in Laindon Centre, has now moved to New Century Road, into a larger building that matches the level of service every family in our care deserves.

How you wish to say farewell to your loved one is completely your choice. We can organise a funeral that is completely tailored to you and your family's preference, one that honour's the memory of your loved one.

Our funeral home has a dedicated ashes chapel and two chapels of rest, which can be made available, on request, outside of normal hours should you wish to visit your loved one before the day of the funeral. Call us at any time to find out more about the services we provide.

You and your family are our priority, so if there is anything we can do to help you in this difficult time, please let us know. We are here for you.

This is the 3rd time we have used Butler & English, in the last year we have had the great pleasure with having Michelle help us on 2 occasions. What a lovely, warm and kind hearted this lady is. Michelle helps above and beyond expectations. Also provides a great service. John Jeffries who has done embalming on 2 occasions also does a fantastic job really couldn’t have asked for more. From start to finish they made our very sad occasions that little bit easier. Ian also again above and beyond what we could of wished for. Would like to thank all of you at Butler & English superb service and superb people.
