London Funeral Directors in Kensington

We are J H Kenyon Funeral Directors in Kensington, London, and we are based in a charming parade of shops on Kensington High Street. Our funeral home has been recently refurbished with a brand new, modern interior and beautifully decorated on the outside to welcome you and you family during your time of need. Upon visiting us, you can still find some of the historical features from our previous funeral home, such as the original wrought iron signage.

Ever since we began helping families as Carriage Masters in 1870, our name has continued to be a symbol of trust and respect in our London community. Our founder James Kenyon and his son Harold had a caring nature which they were well-known for, helping families give their loved ones the farewell they wished for, as well as doing all they could for charities and the homeless.

J H Kenyon is still built on this ethos today; no matter what kind of funeral you think is most fitting, we will always be able to help you. We want nothing more than to help make a difficult time a little easier for you. We can cater for all religious, spiritual and non-religious funerals, from a traditional service and a colourful woodland burial.

We also have funeral homes in Bayswater, Kilburn, Westminster, Hampstead and North Finchley.

We are available to talk to 24 hours a day, so please call us at any time on 020 3667 8664 and we will be here to help you every step of the way.

    JH Kenyon is an excellent High Street Funeral Directors business. They understand the distress and they commit to deliver superb service from death to funeral and beyond. They even offered me a service in a price that is below the national average, and they have never been unreasonable with their demands. In fact, they have been supremely supportive in this hard time, where as the government has been extremely hard and harsh. You will be in good hands in whatever you need.

    We have used the services of JH Kenyon on two occasions and I have only positive things to say about them. The staff, particularly Sandra and Nabeela, are kind and attentive and were able to put us all immediately at ease. Everything was carried out to perfection and with great attention to detail. To have such support and efficient service at such a painful and difficult time has been a huge comfort. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

    I approached J H Kenyon at Kensington High Street with what seemed to me to be a rather unusual and difficult request. I required two burials for the same person; one in the UK and one in Canada. However the funeral director immediately put me at ease, understanding my concerns and made suggestions for dealing with both scenarios. Without any hesitation everything was arranged and all the necessary procedures and documentation arranged for both the UK as well as Canada. At a time when circumstances were very stressful, it was a comfort to know that I was dealing with a reliable and professional company that was able to cope successfully with my circumstances. Thank you once again for your sympathetic assistance and support; it is very much appreciated.

    The service we received from Nabeela, Sandra and Fabio at the Kensington branch from start to finish was exceptional. Their professionalism, humility and support was amazing and I could not thank them enough for this at a very difficult time. Would recommend the team without hesitation. Thank you.
