F. W. Jones & Son Funeral Directors, Chippenham
About our Chippenham funeral home
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.

Reviews of our services
We always felt at ease with everyone who helped us, and knew that nothing would be too much to ask.
Altogether an excellent service.
I could not fault anything.
This is the second time we have used their service based on our first experience.
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.
Thank you Patricia M
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.
Spot on Thank you
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. 🙏🙏
Thankyou to everyone at F W Jones & Sons for making such a difficult time so much easier and worry free. Excellent, professional service in every way.
Was corrected. And after being told the number that could attend the funeral was 30 we were then informed
Only 26 could attend which meant having to tell 4 people that they could not attend the service.
The service was carried to our satisfaction and we felt that we and F.W.Jones in the end gave my mother a fitting funeral.
