About Us

Welcome to F L Mildred & Sons Funeral Directors in Wigston, Leicestershire. We are here to help you and your family through this difficult time and arrange a beautiful and personal farewell for your loved one.

Our founder, Frederick Mildred, first began as a carpenter, joiner and funeral furnisher before starting his own business in 1917.

In the 1930s, his three sons became his apprentices; Ron the joiner, Dennis the bricklayer and Fred the plumber. Following the Second World War, Frederick and his three sons joined together as F L Mildred & Son.

As the company flourished, they began focusing more on conducting professional funerals in Wigston. Three generations later, they joined Dignity, with Keith and Trevor Mildred still involved in providing beautiful funeral services to this day.

Please call us at any time. We promise to carefully listen to your wishes and requests, and arrange the funeral service you want for your loved one.

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 278 6291 to talk through your personal requirements.

    From start to finish the staff were professional, knowledgeable and caring. Although F L Mildreds are part of a big firm now I felt like I was being looked after by a family of workers who had the time to sit and make a horrible situation not so bad. I don't want to mention any names in particular as everyone has been supportive and it usually takes a team of workers to make the front line as good as they were. I would also recommend taking out the funeral plan especially if that awful time is looming as it's an opportunity to think about what your loved ones would like.

    Our family were very pleased with the service provided by F L Mildred. They provided us with a full explanation both with the costs involved and the funeral service details. On the day of the funeral we were met by the representative of the funeral directors. He was very attentive to our needs and made us feel assured at the service and at the church yard for the burial.
