About our Sanderstead funeral home

Welcome to Ebbutt Funeral Directors in Sanderstead, South Croydon. We are one of the oldest funeral directors London, after three centuries of serving families in the community we love. We welcome families from all of our neighbouring areas and beyond, such as Purely, Kenley, Hamsey Green, Farleigh, New Addington and Croydon.

Your wellbeing is extremely important to us. We are always here to talk, and will listen to your thoughts and wishes with care and compassion. Your loved one's funeral can be tailored to be what they would have wanted, whether they would favour a more traditional, religious service, or something a little more contemporary. We will always endeavour to meet any special requests, no matter how big or small.

The Ebbutt family began as carpenters and joiners. In 1718, John Ebbutt worked as an undertaker, making beautifully crafted coffins, just like his father and grandfather before him. Today, our name is synonymous with quality and kindness, with generations of the same families entrusting themselves into our care.

We are here for you, every step of the way. Please call us today on 020 8916 0694 at any hour.

Everything went very well from initial contact to the funeral day. Thank you to all concerned who made a very difficult day run smoothly.
Response from Ebbutt Funeral Directors
Thank you for these lovely words, it means so much to the whole team. We are very proud of our team and the care they give and it means the world when we hear from the families that we have looked after.

Everyone we met was polite and helpful. Undertaker and his colleagues were very respectful on the day of funeral. Nothing was any trouble for Jan in the office no matter how big small or silly! I gave. Ever had to deal with an undertaker before and found the whole process as stress free ax it could be on the circumstances.
Response from Ebbutt Funeral Directors

I would like to thank Jan and all the team at Ebbutt's, for their extremely kind, sensitive and efficient service. They guided us through the process and explained every step of the way. The funeral was handled traditionally and highly respectfully and they looked after my Mum without fuss but with great kindness, helping us all through a difficult day. I highly recommend their services. Thank you for all your support.

I chose to use Ebbutts funeral directors, Sanderstead when my Mum passed away in August 2020. This was based on my previous experiences of their wonderful service for both my Dad and Auntie’s funerals in the past 6 years.

Due to the Covid restrictions this was an entirely different experience but Jan was again so kind, caring and meticulous, putting me in touch with a wonderful celebrant and just made sure that everything ran smoothly for us.

On the day of Mum’s cremation service Ian was the funeral director and I cannot thank him enough for his professional care and compassion. Ian subsequently officiated at the internment of Mum’s ashes last Saturday, again making a difficult day for us so much more bearable. He really thought of everything to make our final goodbyes easier.

I cannot recommend Ebbbutts of Sanderstead highly enough, thank you.
