Gordon Rodwell Funeral Directors in Felixstowe

About our Felixstowe funeral home

We are Gordon Rodwell Funeral Directors, your local funeral home in Felixstowe since 1971.

The Rodwells used to be carriage masters and provide vehicles for other funeral directors. Gordon then decided to open his own funeral home to provide high standards of care to the people of Felixstowe, Trimley St Mary, Walton and beyond.

Although Mr Gordon is now retired, he regularly pops into the office for a cup of tea and to ensure that the families in our care are looked after with the same compassion and care as before, if not more.

It is from these humble beginnings that we now endeavour to help you and your family through this difficult time. We promise to take good care of your loved one and to honour their memory by organising a farewell exactly the way you think would be best.

No detail is too small to take into account, everything from the type of funeral to the flower arrangements will be personally taken care of.

Our funeral home has a private chapel of rest, one that can be made available out of normal working hours, should you wish to spend some time with your loved one before the day of the funeral.

Your and your family's comfort is our priority so we are always available to come see you to make the arrangements in the privacy of your home. You can contact us at anytime you need, our team is always available to offer help, advice or a listening ear.

I work in a care home and the girls that work there recommended Gordon Rodwells. And I must say I found them to be most kind. Family members commented on the kindness and respect shown. Even say that when their time came they have told their next of kin to use Gordon Rodwells. I found the staff friendly and helpful. The way they looked after my husband was beautiful, and I had no worries, they took away the stress.

An excellent level of care demonstrated from start to finish. Your Funeral Director, Tom, in particular was very good and a real asset to the business. Within minutes of speaking to Tom on the phone, my family and I felt that everything was under control and that with Grandad in Gordon Rodwell's care, he would be in safe hands. Thank you once again for the personal and compassionate service that you provided.

I was totally happy with the service provided. Everything was arranged as requested and nothing was too much trouble. Tom was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. All of my dealings with him were professional and respectful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gordon Rodwell to anybody in the same situation. I have used Gordon Rodwell for both of my late parents and my late partner over the course of the last 5 years and have had extremely good experiences each time.

Gordon Rodwells of Felixstowe buried my father with such care and sensitivity that when my mother died we knew exactly who to turn to.

They made sure that our every wish was carried out, and we were never left feeling that we were 'just another funeral'.

I'm delighted to take this opportunity to recommend them.
