We are inviting people to decorate the tree with special silver star decorations available at our funeral home – each carrying the names of those dearly departed. This is open to the entire community and free of charge.
“We’d like to support the whole community and everyone who may be dealing with grief,” explained EF Edwards Funeral Manager, Lisa Hodge. “The stars on the tree can help people, especially at this time of year, remember their loved ones and do something a bit more proactive. It can give people who are grieving something to focus on.”

Reviews for E F Edwards Funeral Directors in Erdington
Thank you all
The thought of arranging a funeral was overwhelming but Katherine made this a straightforward and stress-free experience; even going above and beyond in assisting us source specialised vehicles required for a disabled family member so that everyone could attend the funeral.
The day went as smoothly as it could have done and the Funeral Director and staff on the day were very respectful, caring and supportive.
As a family we would recommend E F Edwards and couldn't have asked for more at a very difficult time.
We raised a significant amount of money for our chosen charity with thanks to their online Funeral Notice service.
