About Us

At Gordon Barber Funeral Directors we cherish our local community, and we do whatever we can to make sure our families receive the highest levels of service.

In 1993, we opened in Thorpe St. Andrew, so that we could better help families living in the east of Norwich, and in the smaller villages towards Acle and Great Yarmouth.

As a Dignity funeral director, we want to do the best we can for everyone we help. We will support you with advice and guidance when and where you need it. We will help you to plan a funeral service befitting your loved one, and we will go the extra mile to make sure everything is just as you want it.

To keep our promises, we make sure that you can reach us at any hour of the day. You can get in touch with us by telephone at any time. We are here for you.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,995 + third party costs, without compromising on the quality of the service that is delivered. Or our Full Service funeral can be tailored just how you wish, whether that be a traditional ceremony or a colourful celebration of life.

Call us today on 01603 702460 to talk through your personal requirements.

    All the staff were very helpful,and any requests we made were dealt with efficiently, nothing being too much trouble. When I said about people were asked to wear something red, was told the pallbearers could wear red ties which they did, and everyone remarked about it.
    So thanks everyone for the excellent way the funeral went.

    Everyone was so kind, respectful and caring. Every detail was attended to. At a time like this it’s important to feel you are in “good hands” and this was certainly the case. Nothing was too much trouble. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company.

    I first used Gordon Barbers in September 2017 for the funeral of Terry Compton and found them more than helpful as I had to organise a church service in Acle, Norfolk and a burial at London to my delight Barbers Funeral Services arranger did most of the work or me that I was expecting to do myself.
    Terry's wife then died with the same funeral arrangements to be made in January 2019 this I did by giving all the details to Barbers who then had the previous file as guidance and again did most of the arranging for me. Everything went smoothly and according to plan as there where two undertakers involved one in Norfolk and the other in London.

    Ursula was professional and very helpful in making an emotional and stressful experience for my daughter and I. With her help, we were able to cope better with our loss. Also thanks to Gordon Barbour's team who fetched my wife from our residence on 9th December,18 and treated this sad situation with true respect and professionalism. I shall definitely recommend Gordon Barbour to any person asking about a good Funeral Director.

    The care and compassion shown by the team at the office was outstanding, as was that shown by the funeral directors. What could have been a really difficult time for all the family was made a really smooth process: everything was taken care of with professionalism, dignity and care. We had used Gordon Barber before when my father died, so we knew that Mum was in safe hands.
