About Us

We are Eltham funeral directors called Francis Chappell & Sons. Our premises opened in 1905, with two chapels of rest which can be used if you would like to spend time alone with the departed before the funeral service itself. Many benefit from the reflection and solitude they find doing this.

Our London funeral home has undergone an extensive refurbishment scheme with your ease, comfort and accessibility in mind. You can rest assured that our dedicated professionals will tend to the deceased the utmost compassion when they are in our care, giving them the dignified funeral they deserve. Please call us to find out more about our funeral directors in Eltham.
