About Us

Established in 1838, our original Leigh on Sea funeral home was based on Leigh Hill Road, founded by "Chippie Thorp", who was a carpenter and a funeral director. As this point, the building was 'listed', therefore it could not be altered to meet the needs of our growing clientele.

Today, we are located on the corner that meets Avenue Road on the bustling Broadway high street, with a bigger team and improved facilities to provide our families with professional funeral care. Please call us so we can provide a personal and unique funeral service.

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 01702 476323 to talk through your personal requirements.
