Maxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, Streatham
About our Streatham funeral home

We now focus solely on arranging funeral services, with a wealth of specialist knowledge and expertise that we will use to help you.

Reviews for Maxwell Brothers Funeral Directors in Streatham
Nigel and his team were fantastic on the day - they treated my father with utmost respect and were considerate and caring of my mothers needs at the loss of her husband after nearly 66 years married.
Sarah our celebrant - so caring and thoughtful, nothing was too much effort.
If this was any other type of service you would say come again!
Thank you xx
Thanks to all the staff from the family and friends.
Mr D M Stagg
The staff from Maxwells were all very polite and respectful at all times and made everything stress-free.
Thank you to Monica, Sarah, Stephanie and all the Maxwells Staff.
We were allowed time for discussion, questions and we were assisted throughout the whole process. There was flexibility right until the day of the funeral allowing my family and I to make any last minute requests or changes. Communication was clear and open and responses whether via email, telephone or in person was always pronpt and reassuring.
We also noted the support the pallbearers gave to my brothers and family members whose wish it was to carry mum into the chapel. The pallbearers acted responsibly providing guidance with each step.
Due to the excellent support we received from Maxwell Brothers, my family and I were able to say 'goodbye' in a decent and orderly manner reflective of our mother and in accordance with her wishes. It was a beautiful service. We thank you for the professional and empathetic conduct of everyone at Maxwell Brothers.
Chris and the drivers of the limousines were good to, all went well.
Guidance & understanding in difficult times.
