About our Chippenham funeral home

We are F. W. Jones & Son Funeral Directors in Chippenham, and are here to help make a difficult time a little easier for you and your family. We love the community we serve and have a wealth of local knowledge, as well as many decades of funeral expertise passed down over the generations.

Our founder, Frederick William Jones, was born in 1904 in the village of Studley. He began working life as a cabinetmaker, and loved football as a keen supporter of Chippenham Town FC.

His skill set equipped him to do a funeral undertaking apprenticeship at E Wootten & Son, before he decided to start his own caring and professional funeral services. It was not long before he became a popular and valued part of the community.

Three generations later, the Jones family are still part of our funeral directors today. We have a warm and welcoming funeral home with large windows and beautiful paintings of 'old Chippenham'. We have an impeccable Coleman Milne Mercedes fleet, which you can use for your loved one's funeral service if you wish.

We have strong ties with the community we love; we are located close to West Wiltshire Crematorium, St. Paul's Church and St. Andrew's Church, where we hold a Christmas memorial service every year with around 300 people attending in memory of their loved ones.

We are here for you, no matter what, and you can call us 24 hours a day. Please get in touch as soon as you need advice or assistance.

We want to say a big thank you to Michael Ben and team for providing a dignified and caring funeral for our wonderful Mother.
They were able to make a very sad day for our family feel a bit more bearable.
From when we first spoke to Michael, he was able to answer all our questions and give advice when needed.
Despite their being a few problems concerning church and priest he was able to take the worry away from us.
Would highly Recommend F.W.Jones & Son.

There are times in our lives when all we need is for someone to hold our hand and help us through the bleakest and saddest of days. Thank you so much to all of the team at F.W.Jones & Son Funeral Directors for everything you did prior to and during my husbands funeral. You thought of all of the things I could not bear to think about, you guided me and my family in the gentlest of ways, and by doing so allowed us just to concentrate on saying goodbye to a beloved husband, Dad and Grandad.

Thank you Patricia M

Very friendly, sympathetic and accommodating staff. Nothing was too much trouble and our needs and concerns were heard and acted upon. They even made a special trip to pick up a personal item that had been left behind. On the day itself, the funeral was very professionally handled and we felt very much at ease as we knew that we were in capable hands. I would thoroughly recommend this firm to anyone.

At the initial meeting with the family, the arrangements were outlined in full with our ideas and suggestions for the service and the day itself being taken into account where practical.
We were treated at all times with understanding, care, and patience and with both dignity and quiet, unobtrusive efficiency on the day of the funeral. All of which made for a day to be remembered for all the right reasons and for that we are very grateful.

This is the first time I have had to deal with a funeral directors, and I have to say they were absolutely fantastic from start to finish.
They dealt with every detail of my brothers funeral, right down to finding us a fishing reef, to letting us carry in the coffin at the last minute.
Our one aim was to give my brother a good send off and with their help we achieve it.
So a massive thank you to everyone at
F.W . Jones & Son Funeral Directors. 🙏🙏

I felt they advised me of all my options in the very unexpected death of my husband. They took their time and allowed me and my daughter time to decide what funeral we required. The respect and kind words made us feel at ease, and the funeral was beautifully organised on what was a very emotional day.
