You don't have to make an appointment at our funeral homes. However, doing so will ensure that someone can be available to cater to your needs. When arranging a funeral, our Funeral Directors are happy to visit you in your own home, if required.
Third party funeral costs are additional charges which we will manage for you and attach to your single invoice. Get in touch with us to confirm costs and plan a funeral to fit your budget.
If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.
Dignity Funeral Plans let you pay for your funeral in advance and at today's price. It's a way of taking control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the funeral plan upfront.
Reviews of our services
From the people who answered the phone, administered paperwork, and the staff present at the crematorium, they made the day of mum's funeral run smoothly, my heartfelt thanks.
To all the staff at wottens & son funeral directors in calne .
The late Ron Wootten would be proud of the performance of the company that still bears his name.
Mrs Patricia Hendy
We have on both occasions received excellent care and service from Jenn and Sue. They go above and beyond to make sure the funeral was planned and taken care of exactly how we wanted it to be. The arrangements were made with Jenn again patience and attention to details was at the top of the list. Jenn made sure the family felt that the service they wanted was exactly that. Our family mentioned to Jenn that Dad loved his horseracing, and Jenn suggested this theme on the Order of Service Sheets which looked fab. Her and Sue even copied off a betting slip and betting forecast and placed it in his coffin which was a great comfort to us. The care on the day was as always impeccable. Great care and attention at the Crematorium, nothing was too much trouble, a phone call made to my husband on the day of the service was of some comfort. I would highly recommend E. Wootten & Son.
