Gerald W Burden Funeral Directors, Amesbury
About our Amesbury funeral home
From our funeral home on Church Street in Amesbury (opposite the Abbey Church of St Mary and St Melor), we serve families in both the local and surrounding communities. Our location makes us easily accessible to nearby towns and villages, such as Durrington, Tidworth, Bulford and Shipton Bellinger.
Our caring team of funeral directors is committed to ensuring your wishes for a funeral are met. We will tailor your farewell to the preferences of you and your family, providing guidance and advice when you need it, so you are not left to make the decisions alone. If you want a religious or a non-religious ceremony, a traditional funeral or something with a more unique feel, we will help to arrange it for you.
If you want to spend some time in quiet contemplation with your loved one, we have a chapel of rest on our premises. This peaceful environment offers a quiet space in which to collect your thoughts in comfort and privacy. We are also able to open the chapel of rest outside of normal hours, so that you can pay your visit at a time more convenient for you.
Our team at Gerald W Burden Funeral Directors would be honoured to arrange a funeral that reflects what your loved one meant to you.
We are available 24 hours of the day, so when you feel ready to talk, we will be here to listen.

Professional, thoughtful and compassionate.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this service.
Although my mother had organised her funeral a few years beforehand, we were contacted every step of the way to confirm any last minute changes and details.
My thanks to Paula And Mark for making it special..I know my mother would have loved it!!
Nothing was too much trouble and the day was as perfect as could be.
Highly recommend Paula and the rest of Burdens, Amesbury.
I found the service provided was excellent.
