About Us

We are C S Bowyer Funeral Directors in Bradford-on-Avon. We were first established by H S Bowyer, a local man who was renowned not just for his kind and charitable nature, but for his impeccable standards of funeral services to every family in his care. His memorial masonry was also of the same unparalleled quality, and he had a particular flare for carpentry and building.

The values of our founder are still paramount to us today; respect and compassion are at the heart of all we do, because we want nothing more than to help make a difficult time a little easier for the families who have entrusted their loved one into our care.

By choosing us, the choices available to you will be limitless, because we can tailor every detail of the funeral service to be just as you wish. From a traditional religious service to an alternative green burial, whatever kind of funeral you think is fitting, we will make sure it is just as you wish.

Please give us a call at any hour; we will be with you every step of the way.

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.

    I was treated with care and warmth and advised every step of the way. Naturally, this is a very difficult time but being made to feel part of the process, normalising it in a way, made the whole thing less torturous. On the day, I was again treated with respect and consideration and guided through the service, protecting me on all sides from any unpleasantness. Offers of help, or just a friendly ear, was made after the service, cushioning the blow of the loss and grief for my husband. Thank you.

    We were very pleased with the care and service we received from Harry. There was a lot of co-ordinating to do with various family members and it all came together very well.

    The Church Service over ran and we were worried that we would lose our 'slot' at the Crematorium but someone worked hard behind the scenes and it all turned out well, if a little hurried!

    We would be happy to recommend C. S. Bowyer. We felt they showed the right amount of care and dignity without being condescending.

    Harry was very thoughtful and helpful in all our planning. Nothing was too much trouble. On the day itself Harry and Gary were again very helpful. When my father was planning his funeral Denise was also very sensitive and caring.

    The service was first class and highly professional. My father was a high ranking RAF officer and Knight of the Realm and the quality of the service was paramount. CS Bowyer met the high standards required. Highly recommended.

    My family and I are very grateful for the service provided on the occasion of my aunt’s funeral. I was given clear advice on the arrangements that needed to be made, decisions to be taken and any arrangements I needed to put in place. I was dealt with in a calm sympathetic manner and there was good communication by both phone, e mail as well as face to face.
    The funeral went as planned and my family is appreciative of the service provided by CS Bowyer.
