About Us

Ginns & Gutteridge are Leicester funeral directors that have been serving bereaved families in Leicestershire for over 100 years. We conduct dignified and unique funerals that are personal to the bereaved and their loved one who has passed away.

We were the first funeral home in Leicester to have a motorised hearse. You can see our history in old pictures and ledgers when you visit us.

Our specially equipped facilities provide disabled access, a wash and dress area for those who require it, and catering facilities that can be used for a wake. Please give us a call at any time of the day if you require our help.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,995 + third party costs, without compromising on the quality of the service that is delivered. Or our Full Service funeral can be tailored just how you wish, whether that be a traditional ceremony or a colourful celebration of life.

Call us today on 0116 251 6117 to talk through your personal requirements.
