About Us

We are Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors in Orpington, Kent. We are known in the local community for our consistently high standards of funeral care, service and facilities, which we conduct with uncompromising compassion.

Our funeral home has been recently refurbished, and has been designed and tastefully decorated to help you feel comfortable when you visit us.

In 2016, we celebrated 175 years of service to the community, and during this time we have gained essential knowledge and expertise that we use to arrange a bespoke funeral for every family in our care.

You can always get in touch with us by telephone, 24 hours a day. If you need our help, our dedicated funeral professionals will be here to support, advise and guide you.

Christmas can be a difficult time of year, especially so for those who are grieving. We warmly invite you to join us at one of our Memorial Carol Services. Local staff will be on hand to welcome you, and there will be an opportunity to remember your loved one by lighting a candle, if you wish. Afterwards, you are welcome to stay and have a cup of tea or coffee with us. Please call us to find out more details of our Memorial Carol Services.

We are here for you, every step of the way. Please call us today on 01689 823777 at any hour.
