G. & L. Evans Funeral Directors, Highworth
About our Highworth funeral home
We understand that no two people are the same and funerals should be no different. It is our duty to ensure your loved one’s funeral is bespoke and personal to you and your family. You have full control over all aspects; from the type of music to the route the cortege takes to the floral arrangement. If you think of anything else, that will make it unique and special we will do our best to cater for this.
We have gained invaluable experience over the years by serving families from here and our other two funeral homes in Faringdon and Swindon. Whether you would prefer a religious or contemporary farewell, like a woodland burial, humanist or bright celebration of life; we will be able to organise it.
For the religious families that come into our care, we are located close to the Highworth Methodist Church, Highworth Community Church and St Michael’s & All Angel’s Church.
We have our very own memorial department that can provide beautiful tributes to stand in remembrance of your loved one for generations to come.
You can find our Highworth funeral home on the parade of shops on Newburgh Place; next to Tesco Express. You can easily get to us from the neighbouring areas of Hannington, Hampton, Sevenhampton, Coleshill and Upper Inglesham.
We are here to help and support you every step of the way. Our dedicated team is available to give you advice or answer any questions you may have, 24 hours a day.

Reviews of our services
I was always kept informed by the funeral director and I new if I needed help it would be there from anyone at the end of the telephone.
Everything went like "clockwork"
We could not be more pleased with the service we received and would not hesitate to recommend this company to others.
Any questions I asked were responded to quickly and efficiently and the funeral itself ran smoothly and on time! Cannot fault them!
