About Us

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.

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.

Call us today on 01268 543135 to talk through your personal requirements.

    Michelle was very helpful and went the extra mile to accomandate the date of the funeral as the vicar we wanted to perform the service was going on a 3 month visit to Africa
