About our Amesbury funeral home

Gerald W Burden Funeral Directors in Amesbury is here to help ease some of your burden following the loss of a loved one. We will help you to arrange a dignified and heartfelt funeral that is a lasting testament to their life.

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.

I felt like I was the only one who mattered, I was asked what I would like or what my mum had wanted. I was asked about my mum. I was made to feel she was the most important person there. Nothing seemed too much trouble, all advise was given in a manner to help me through the sad and difficult times approaching. Nothing seemed to much trouble. I cannot thank them enough. They were there start to finish and then some. Everyone was friendly, polite and professional. I would recommend their service to everybody. Thank you all for what you delivered, it was the best.

My sister and I were treated with kindness, respect and compassion throughout and every aspect of the funeral proceedings were thoroughly discussed and our choices upheld.
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!!
