About Us

Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors in Sevenoaks has long served the families of Kent with integrity and respect. We are here to help you at this difficult time, arranging a tender and dignified funeral for your loved one.

Founded by John Chappell in 1840, the experience passed down from one generation to the next allows us to offer you the highest standard of funeral care and support. Our team of funeral directors will help to ease any concerns or uncertainties you may have, while working to ensure your loved one’s farewell is a fitting reflection of their life.

Rest assured, you can put your trust in the knowledge and professionalism our longstanding position in the community has given us, along with the kindness our team offers from the moment you first call, to the funeral and beyond.

Our Sevenoaks funeral home can be found on the London Road and it has a welcoming arrangement room that includes a fireplace and oak beams. It is decorated in warm autumnal colours to help you feel comfortable and at ease when you visit. We also have a chapel of rest, where you can spend time with your loved one in a private environment, which we can open outside normal hours to suit you and your family.

The Sevenoaks location of our funeral directors means we are also able to provide our services to the surrounding Kent communities, including Edenbridge, Dunton Green, Kemsing and Seal.

In 2015, we were honoured to have reached the milestone of 175 years spent aiding the families here in Kent. We would be equally honoured to help you and yours.

    At a very sad, emotional time the arrangements ran very smoothly, with Jennifer organising and guiding us at every stage. Kerry our funeral director was very professional. On the day of the funeral it ran like clockwork.

    The staff were very considerate and at the same time instructive, at the initial meeting, so I knew what had to be done. The actual funeral took place with perfect timing, consideration for everyone and without a hitch.

    Francis Chappell & Sons of Sevenoaks recently organised my late mother’s funeral. Their efficiency and care for details took so much of the worry out of the day. Everyone associated with the event was lovely and they were there to assist me through each stage of the process. I have had substantial feedback from attendees about what a fitting tribute it was.
