B H Mears Funeral Directors, Midsomer Norton
About our Midsomer Norton funeral home
At an already difficult time, you may be further daunted by the feelings of uncertainty that often follow the loss of somebody special. Not knowing what to do next or how to go about arranging a funeral is perfectly natural when placed under the emotional stress of something as overwhelming as a loved one’s passing.
Our team of funeral directors is on hand to help ease your concerns and provide a sympathetic ear, providing guidance to help you through every step of the arrangement process. We will listen to your wishes and learn about your loved one and your family, allowing us to provide a funeral that is both a personal and unique reflection on life.
If you would like to spend some time with your loved one in the days leading up to the funeral, there is a chapel of rest where you can do so in privacy and comfort. We can open outside of our normal hours to allow your visit, if it is more convenient for you.
Our funeral home is located on Pows Orchard, just off Midsomer Norton’s High Street, and we are easily accessible to nearby towns and villages in the Bath and North East and Mendip districts. These include Paulton, Radstock, Peasedown St John, Chilcompton and Ston Easton.
Our advisory team is available 24 hours a day. Call us on 01761 412160 when you feel you are ready, we are here to listen.

If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.
Dignity Funeral Plans let you pay for your funeral in advance and at today's price. It's a way of taking control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the funeral plan upfront.
Reviews of our services
They were very helpful and had time for us didn’t rush any visit while we were there.
They were both very professional and very friendly towards us always made us feel welcome and that nothing was too much trouble.
They made us feel very reassured about the actual day of the funeral and that everything would be in place, and it was.
Could not fault anything and would definitely recommend to everyone for their wonderful service.
I have no hesitation in recommending Martin and B H Mears.
