About Us

We are H J Phillips & Sons Funeral Directors on Rockingham Road, in Kettering. We are honoured to continually have had the opportunity to help our local families in Kettering and surrounding areas in their time of need, for over 100 years.

We know how difficult it is when a loved one passes away and how important it is to say farewell exactly the way you want to.

Your wishes will be carefully listened to and we will ensure that they are carried out to the letter. Whether you prefer a traditional, religious or a contemporary funeral, like a woodland burial, the choice is yours.

Our experience and knowledge of the local area means that we are well equipped to handle all your request and ease the burden regarding all the arrangements.

Our funeral home has disabled access and a private chapel of rest, should you wish to spend time with your loved one before the day of the funeral. Furthermore, we offer reimbursement when parked opposite us, at Sainsbury’s carpark.

We are here for you, day or night; so if you need our help, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. If you cannot come to us, we can arrange to visit you whether you are based in Kettering, Barton Seagrave, Warkton, Weekley, Glendon, Thorpe Malsor or any other surrounding area.

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 01536 512144 to talk through your personal requirements.

    From start to finish and beyond the funeral arrangements were handled with care and consideration to both myself and the deceased, and there was very good contact with me leading up to the day of the funeral, the little exras given to me after the funeral in a gift bag were a very nice gesture and we're appreciated and so we're the follow up calls afterwards, after another funeral by a well known company, l would recommend HJ Phillips & Son without hesitation and l can't think of anything they could do to improve on the service they provide as it is perfect and very well thought out.
    All I can add is " Thank you ".
