J H Kenyon Funeral Directors, Kensington
About our Kensington funeral home
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.

Reviews for J H Kenyon Funeral Directors in Kensington
Nabeela (Funeral Service Arranger) guided us through a very difficult period with kindness and compassion. She presented a calm reassurance that allowed us to approach the day confident that it would proceed flawlessly. Her knowledge and experience were evident in everything she said and everything she did.
The pallbearers were immaculate, and the flowers were stunning.
We can recommend them highly.
On the day of the funeral the limousine drivers were respectful and courteous. They helped to make a difficult journey pleasant. They overheard one of my relatives saying he needed to collect something from my home on route to the wake; they immediately suggested that they take a detour to enable my relative to collect what was needed. Their thoughtfulness was very much appreciated.
I am grateful to Nabeela and the drivers for the way they treated me and my extended family.
