Bishop's Stortford Funeral Directors

We are D C Poulton & Sons Funeral Directors in Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, and we are here to give you careful guidance and uncompromising compassion to help make a difficult time a little easier.

After over 130 years of serving our community, the caring values of our founders remain at the heart of all that we do today. We want to make a difficult time as easy as possible for you and your family, and will tailor any details to honour any final wishes.

Our funeral home has a long history of helping people. During the Second World War, 50 Hockerill Street was requisitioned by the War Office, as a lodging for expectant mothers that had been evacuated from London.

Today, we have the best facilities to care for you, your family and your loved one, including a state-of-the-art fleet of Mercedes limousines, and a peaceful chapel of rest where you can spend time alone with your loved one.

Please get in touch at any time of the day; we are here to talk 24 hours around the clock.

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.
