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.

We are available 24 hours to listen and talk. To arrange the funeral of your loved one, contact us today.

Christmas can be a difficult time of year, especially so for those that grieve. We warmly invite you to attend one of our Memorial Carol Services. Local staff will be on hand to welcome you, there will be an opportunity to remember your loved one and to light a candle, if you wish, and to stay afterwards to 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 01732 450203 at any hour.
