  • If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.

From beginning to end all staff were very lovely and totally professional but It seemed as though we’d known them all for a long time. They were very easy to talk to and attended to every detail in a very caring way. A staff member (who grew up as a neighbour and who’d known my uncle since he was a child) had been one of the undertakers who attended and took away my uncle on the night he died made sure he attended on the funeral day and also the conductor on the day stopped the hearse and walked my uncle through the local shopping centre where he was well known. It was all very lovely and personal and made a sad day so much more bearable... thank you so much!!
Response from Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors

Rating 5.0
Sadly, I've had to deal with Francis Chappell three times over the last 18 months, having lost my partner and both my parents within that period. Beyond the obvious grief, I also had to deal with funeral arrangements, not something I'd ever had to deal with before. Thankfully, the team at Francis Chappell were excellent on all three occasions. I was always treated with kindness and understanding, which I very much appreciated at the time and still do.
Response from Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors

Rating 5.0
Extremely attentive and listened to my many questions and explained the process clearly . Which I found very helpful in this sad time .
I have never dealt with organising a funeral and the process was explained clearly and the booklet showed photos and clear pricing.
Showed sympathy and empathy .
Price is clear and reasonable, compared to the other local firms .
Response from Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors
