About Us

As Dignity funeral directors we are constantly striving to set the bar for high standards in funeral care. We care deeply about every member of our community, and we feel a duty to support you all in arranging a special farewell for your loved one.

E F Edwards Funeral Directors have been providing funeral services from our Erdington funeral home since 1966. During this time we have built up a wealth of knowledge and experience which we will use to assist you in planning the service. We have local contacts in the Birmingham area, which helps us to make sure that everything on the day is exactly as you want it to be.

As well as the funeral service, your wellbeing is equally important to us. We know how difficult the loss of a loved one can be, and we want to offer you our support. You are not alone, and we are happy to be that friendly face you might need. Call us at any time of the day, and we will be here for you.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,995 + third party costs, without compromising on the quality of the service that is delivered. Or our Full Service funeral can be tailored just how you wish, whether that be a traditional ceremony or a colourful celebration of life.

Call us today on 0121 373 0300 to talk through your personal requirements.
