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.

What We Offer

  • Advice and guidance at every stage including registering the death
  • Arrangements personalised to meet your family's needs
  • Local expertise and knowledge
  • Cremation or burial at any local crematorium or burial site
  • Viewing of the deceased in the chapel of rest
  • Hearse, funeral cars and other transport options
  • Memorials
  • Funeral plans
