About our Stafford funeral home

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.

Having to face our fathers funeral so closely after my mothers was a very difficult time. All of the staff at Robert Nicholls funeral directors supported the family throughout and the staff that had previously dealt with my mothers funeral remembered us and made the effort to compassionately acknowledge this difficult time personally to us which was very thoughtful and much appreciated. It was very clear by their actions that we weren't just a number and that the staff care about the families that they are supporting. Any requests we had were dealt with quickly and the day ran very smoothly, so I'd like to thank all the staff for their care, support and professionalism.

The standard of service provided throughout, right from our first call to Emma, was truly excellent and it was all done with real attention to detail and great sensitivity. Just like with Dad, whose funeral was also directed by Nicholls, we wanted our Mum to have the very best and that's exactly what she got.

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.
