About our Richmond funeral home

T H Sanders & Sons Funeral Directors in Richmond are here to give careful guidance and uncompromising compassion to you and your family during your time of need. We will do everything we can to make this difficult a little easier for you.

We welcome families of all faiths and cultures into our care, and our funeral home is located close by to the places of worship for many different religions. No matter what kind of funeral you want to honour the life of your loved one, we will always be able to help.

Our Richmond funeral home is part of the rich heritage of our local community. It was the first of many funeral homes opened by Thomas Henry Sanders, who is renowned for his impeccable services and kind values. Our funeral home was blessed by the Vicar of St John's Church when it opened on 21st September 1937.

Here is a description from The Richmond and Twickenham Times from when our Richmond funeral home was first built:

"From outside, the brickwork of the new building harmonises with the older part, while the central tower and the plain cross in the brickwork are reminiscent of church architecture... Every night a warmly tinted light shines from the tower... regulated to start earlier as the days grow shorter, so that loved ones will not seem to have been forgotten and left in darkness."

We are always here for you 24 hours a day, so please reach out to us whenever you need to talk.

Amy was so professional as well as gently understanding.
I asked for some unusual things - nothing was too much trouble.

T H Sanders staff were exceptional in every respect. From my first contact right through to the funeral day and service they were

courteous, helpful and efficient. I could not have asked for more. They also provided a day of sunshine , but I understand that this

does not come with a guarantee.

Many thanks

With no funeral plan in place we used this service as it was close to where my mother was living . From the start of arrangement to the end of service everything and everyone was treated with dignity and care .
Amy at the undertakers organised everything and kept us updated with regular e mails on meeting her I found her to be very sincere and understanding guiding us effortlessly through the procedures .The celebrant portrayed an excellent life of my late stepfather considering the little information available to him and made time to pass his condolences to my mother .The coffin bearers looked smart and carried out their duties to a very high standards cannot fault the service we received Many thanks to you all for .

Having never had to plan a funeral before, I was really daunted about the process. However Amy at TH Saunders made the process easy, not stressful, choices but not loads of choices, which in my opinion is important. She was also kind, honest, reassuring and dignified. The service was conducted by a recommended chaplain it absolutely perfect for our family.
We were all so sad to lose our family member but I am so relieved he had a good send off and this was all down to Amy and all the team at TH Saunders.

Excellent service, highly recommended. All the staff I encountered were courteous and professional. The options for the funeral were clearly set out in the company’s brochure and all costs made clear. Amy, from the Richmond office, helped me make informed decisions and her natural empathy offered comfort at a difficult time.

I have no hesitation in recommending T.H.Sanders & Sons Fureral Directors - Richmond to anyone having to go through the difficult and sad time of arranging a Funeral for a loved one.
Amy was amazing from first contact, warm & kind & helpful with all our wishes, which made the whole event seem considirilby easier.
Amy always went the extra mile.
Hannah the Celebrant for the Order Of Service, could not have been more kind & helpful with everything regarding the Service - to picking up 20 white roses for me on the day.
Her kind words created a lovely Service for My Mum, which all family & friends commented on afterwards, both Amy & Hannah, Two Stars in a wining team for me & my family.
Thank You!
Kind Regards

Amy made what was the most difficult few weeks of our lives that little bit more bearable. She was warm, empathetic and professional, and went above and beyond to ensure we were happy and that our Father was treated with the utmost respect and care.
We were so impressed with T H Sanders, on the day of funeral they ensured everything went smoothly and we felt we were in ‘safe hands’.
Thank you, for helping us in our darkest of days.

My family member’s funeral wasn’t as complicated as some can be, but it felt complicated when trying to work out what steps needed to be taken. Amy in Richmond stood far above the other funeral directors I’d contacted because from the first call she didn’t hesitate to take action to help me and secure my wishes for funeral timing (even when she didn’t have to, as I was just enquiring at that point). Her kindness and willingness to help through this tough time shone through, and was consistent throughout the lead-up to the funeral. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Amy/TH Sanders & Sons.
