About our Bradford funeral home

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.

The service I received from C.S. Bowyer, Bradford on Avon was exemplary. The staff were kind and courteous and made the whole experience a lot easier. The little extras such as pausing at my dads home, the photo and the memory box were very thoughtful. I would thoroughly recommend C.S. Bowyer to anyone seeking a considerable and reasonably priced funeral director. Thank you for your services.

I have used Bowyers for both my parents funerals and have been very impressed by the attention to detail. All the staff were very courteous and efficient in their dealings with myself and the family. We felt that we had people at the end of a phone that we could turn to for advice.
Excellent service with feeling!

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.

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.
