Grimmett & Timms Funeral Directors, Coventry
About our Coventry funeral home
At every step we will listen to you carefully and follow your wishes exactly. We are here to give your loved one a bespoke funeral that is personal to you and your family.
Our funeral home, established by Mr. Grimmett, was looked after by his wife Muriel Grimmett after his sad demise in 1982. The values passed down to us, by our founders, can still be seen today in how we treat every family in our care. You can read some of the reviews left by some of our dear families for further insight into our service.

Reviews for Grimmett & Timms Funeral Directors in Coventry
I would recommend taking advantage of the live streaming provided by Obitus.
This allowed people who could not attend to watch the service live.
It is also available online to watch again.
Vicky for her initial perceptive and observant meeting with our family, even bringing a smile to our faces and for her loving kindness in her care for our dear Dennis as he lay in the Chapel of Rest. You have a rare and special gift Vicky. Also our sincere thanks to Sarah and the team of bearers/drivers for their professionalism and Sarah's thoughtful care as she met our family and friends and for her kind guidance and instruction both at the funeral and the burial. A very dignified day. You are all excellent at your jobs and it was so appreciated. God bless you all in your future work.
Sincerely Gordon & Pamela Knight & Doreen & Brian Stone & Family.
From the very first contact I couldn't fault them. They were truly wonderful both emotionally and practically and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone. I would certainly use them again in the future.
Thank you so much.
Ten months later, I had to arrange my late Uncle's funeral and I had no hesitation in returning to Grimmett and Timms for the same. Once again, I received a wonderful service from Grimmett and Timms' employees.
Caring, supportive and efficient.
The preparation was thorough and the whole day went very smoothly and with care and consideration for all of us
We gave Dad a great send off - Thank you !!
