From our funeral home on the Balmoral Road in Gillingham town centre, we serve the local community and the surrounding areas. Our location means we are easily accessible to towns and villages throughout Medway, including Brompton, Rainham, Walderslade and St Mary’s Island.

    Having to deal with a very unexpected passing of my husband was greatly helped by Barbara in Gillingham office. She assisted with everything right from the start. The staff who attended on day of funeral were very respectful and courteous. Cannot thank them enough
