About Us

Welcome to Ken Gregory & Sons Funeral Directors in Kirkby-in-Ashfield. We have been helping the families of Pinxton, Selston, Newstead and beyond since the late 1970s in their time of need.

Built under the guidance of Ken, Chris and Ann Gregory opened this funeral home with nothing but a “board on the street”. It was their love and commitment to the families that surround them that helped them become the reputable and professional funeral directors that they are today.

It is with the same commitment and compassion, that has been instilled in us by our founders, that we promise to take care of you, your loved one and all the funeral arrangements.

We understand how difficult and confusing this time can be, which is why we will take our time to ensure you are comfortable with all the funeral arrangements being made.

How you want to say goodbye to your loved one is completely up to you. Just let us know what your preferences are, whether that is a cremation, a religious service or a bespoke ceremony to celebrate the memory of your loved one.

No detail is too small to account for and your comfort is always important to us. We have a fleet of cars and a memorial display available to view and a private chapel of rest, should you wish to visit your loved one before the day of the funeral.

Whatever you need, please do not hesitate to ask. You can reach us at any time, day or night. 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 01623 466610 to talk through your personal requirements.

    The whole process from first contact to completion on the day of the funeral was handled in a thoughtful and very professional manner. Although mum had lived in Cornwall for 25 years she had expressed a desire to have her funeral held where most of the family still live. The handling of transport from Cornwall to Kirkby removed a considerable worry, the prospect of which was causing anxiety for some of the family.
    Due to the next service being close behind us I felt we were hurried away perhaps a few minutes too soon as I didn't have time to talk to all the mourners before having to leave. This may of course, have been dictated by the Crematorium rather than yourselves and would otherwise have been 5 star.

    Whilst arranging my Mothers funeral on Christmas eve I had no hesitation in using Ken Gregory as they took care of my Fathers funeral some 8 years ago.

    The process was very simple from start to finish thanks to a lady called Clair. At all times she was there to help no matter what we required and I always felt that I was treated with the utmost respect.

    The whole day of the funeral was planned to perfection.

    Thank you to all at Ken Gregory and a special THANK YOU to Clair.

    I was treated with great respect. My only complaint was that I had to chase up the date of the funeral although I had been told that I would have confirmation by phone. This was on a Friday and I obviously needed to know so as to give relations enough notice.

    My Mum has changed address since taking out the plan, Ken Gregory allowed us to use another undertaker who was a member of the Dignity group, closer to her home and ours so making life a bit easier at this difficult time.They sorted everything out for us including all the paperwork, I can’t thank them enough.
