About Us

We are S & R Childs inc. Fisher & Townsend Funeral Directors in Witney. We have been supporting the families in our Oxfordshire community since 1997, before becoming Dignity funeral directors in 2012.

We are here to make a difficult time a little easier for you and your family, by giving you our uncompromising compassion, and arranging a funeral service that will pay tribute to the life of your loved one.

    Simon guided us through a very difficult and sensitive time with great caring and attention to detail. I cannot speak highly enough of his services, we could not have had better care anywhere.

    At a very sad time we were treated with kindness, friendly faces and professionalism. We were helped through all the necessary arrangements needed with efficiency and compassion and felt reassured that our Mothers funeral would go as planned. We were not disappointed on the day as Simon quietly and efficiently ensured that the day went smoothly, following our plans and giving our Mother the send off we had wished for. Indeed all staff were excellent and professional and I certainly recommend this firm.
