About our Coventry funeral home

Since 1934 we at Grimmet & Timms Funeral Directors have had the honour of helping the people of Coventry in their time of need. For our Hindu and Sikh families in the city we have a wash and dress facility available and our team is well versed in fullfilling any cultural or religious requirements that you may want to include in the service.

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.

Located near the Earlsdon Methodist Church on Albany Road, we are easily accessible to families in Coventry City Centre, Chapel Fields, Spon End and beyond.

Very professional company. Due to COVID restrictions a lot done over the phone although we did get to go into branch and was treated with dignity and care and was informed at all times.

I was very happy with the excellent service we received from Grimmett & Timms from start to finish. Sarah was very professional, friendly & helpful talking me through everything. On the day of the funeral the flowers were absolutely beautiful & Louise & the other staff were excellent so kind & friendly. Louise walked in front of the funeral car which was a lovely touch & so respectful. I cant say enough good comments about them, I would definitely recommend using them.

Everyone was very helpful and understood our objective to have a pleasant service.
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.

Sarah who dealt with everything was absolutely fantastic she took care of everything, she supported the family with the upmost dignity and respect, nothing was too much trouble for her, she did everything we required. The day of the funeral I was a mess and she helped me walk behind the coffin, without her I wouldn't have been able to do it. Thank you for everything.

Thank you to Grimmett & Timms for helping to make a very sad occasion more bearable. Special thanks to
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.

I would like to thank Grimmett and Timms for providing a thoroughly professional service for the funeral of my mom.

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.

Rating 5.0
The services provided by Vicky and Sarah was second to none. We were made to feel at ease at such a difficult time and were dealt with in an extremely caring manner. The only downside I would say was that when collecting my father's ashes from the office earlier this week, the lady (who we had not met before and who did not introduce herself so I do not have her name), made a comment that the ashes were very heavy, and 'he must have had big bones'. Totally inappropriate for the occasion, which my mother was already finding very stressful.

Grimmett and Timms were absolutely amazing, from the very first to the last communication we had with them. They were there for us emotionally as well as professionally whenever we needed them. Without them we’d never have been able to give my Nan the send off she wanted. They are an absolutely amazing team and need more recognition for what they do.
