About Us

We are Robert Nicholls Funeral Directors, helping the people of Stafford say goodbye to their loved ones with dignity.

We have come a long way in a relatively short space of time. Having moved to Rising Brook in 1993, we provide bespoke and dignified funeral services to our local community. Our funeral home includes a preparation area and three chapels of rest, which you and your family can use to spend some peaceful moments with your loved one.

In 2005, we incorporated A Walker & Son Funeral Directors into our fold. Established in 1890, A Walker & Son Funeral Directors was managed by three generations of the family before they joined us.

As Dignity funeral directors, we serve our ever faithful community of Stafford, Gnosall and other neighbouring areas. Our priority is you, which is why you can rest assured that we will go above and beyond to deliver exactly what you want.

As part of our service, we are always available to call. So, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at any time of the day. We will be there for you, to help ease any concerns you may have and guide and support 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 01785 253683 to talk through your personal requirements.

    Everyone at Nicholls were extremely helpful and supportive and nothing was too much trouble. They made a difficult time much easier to deal with. Their time was given freely and everything that I wanted was carried out. I found Nicholls to be very professional with a very personal approach and would highly recommend them. Jane, Richard and Ben all went above and beyond what I expected and for that I will be eternally grateful.
