About our Kirkby funeral home

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.

We found Ken Gregory & Sons caring and both personal and professional in all their contacts with us. Living so far away it was important for us to feel confident that they recognised the challenges we faced in dealing with the arrangements for our brother.
They were always welcoming and offered us a clear view of the way forward for what we required.

The staff at Ken Gregory & Sons Funeral Directors for both funerals for my Dad in November and my Mum in April were excellent and caring at every stage.

Mum had picked the same casket for herself as my dad and burial in the same plot but unbeknown to us the parish council had changed the criteria and were not allowing anymore caskets in the cemetery and the first we knew about this was after it had all been sorted by the staff at Ken Gregory. They had contacted the parish council and pointed out that my Dad had been buried there 6 months earlier in a casket and they had also conducted a funeral the previous day in a casket! At a very difficult the staff at Ken Gregory and Sons had taken this worry away from us and what I feel was above and beyond the service they were providing.

Everything for both services were excellent, nothing was rushed and having them by our side gave us great support throughout.
Response from Ken Gregory & Sons Funeral Directors
Thank you for sharing your sentiments with us regarding your experience. We are glad that we were able to provide you with assistance with regards to the casket and that our staff went above and beyond to provide you with support.
