Ginns & Gutteridge Funeral Directors, Leicester
About our Leicester funeral home
We have a long history and reputation of going the extra mile for our families and ensuring their loved ones are cared for to the highest standards. We are always striving to set the standards in funeral care and, consequently, were the first funeral directors in the city to have a motorised hearse.
Our funeral home in Leicester city centre has recently been refurbished to provide a warm and welcoming environment for our families. We have a beautiful stained-glass window donated to us by the church, a horse drawn carriage and old ledgers dating back to April 1907. But most importantly, we have a team of people here who will work tirelessly to help you and your family through this difficult time.
We promise to listen to you carefully and help you at every turn. We have specially equipped facilities, can easily accommodate those physically disabled and have a wash and dress area if you need it. We welcome every religion and denomination and are ideally located near to Guru Nanak Gurdwara and St Nicholas Church.
From our funeral home in Leicester city centre, we have been able to serve the neighbouring areas of Westcotes, Newfoundpool, Frog island and beyond. You can also visit our other branches in Evington, Long Eaton or Loughborough, if they are closer to you.
If there is anything we can do to make you feel more at ease, please let us know. You can call us at any time of the day on 0116 251 6117, we are here for you.

Reviews for Ginns & Gutteridge Funeral Directors in Leicester, Vaughan Way
The challenge of a spouse moving over is one that you can never be prepared for !!!
However, Ginns & Gutteridge are prepared for this challenge; they act and provide love, consideration and compassion. In what is an horrific time. I found i was confused and they held my hand to enable me to navigate these storms and strong tidal waters.
Ginns & Gutteridge and especially ,The Business Manger Wayne Goddard, made the funeral for my wife a moment of joy and honour. They met all our wishes, questions and desires. I believe and know Donna, my wife, was proud of her send off and that's was down to this company.
To conclude, i can only strongly advice to use this service,it is impeccable and a rarity in our current climate. Thanks you so much Wayne and Co,your working ethics and efforts towards my family are that of divine angels on earth.
We would like to say a big thank you to Helen for her care and attention whilst making the arrangements for my Mother's funeral.
