About our Highworth funeral home

At G. & L. Evans Funeral Directors we serve with pride and passion and it is our calling to give you an unparalleled standard of funeral care. With honour and compassion, we will work with you to understand your every need and arrange a goodbye that reflects the way your loved one lived their life.

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.

The staff at G&L Evans made me and my family feel so cared for by them - they thought of everything and their service was so personal. Our funeral director was always available to answer any question we had, she never once made us feel under any pressure, and approached every aspect of the arrangements with great sensitivity. On the day of my fathers funeral the respect shown by Sarah and her team and their dedication to making sure it ran smoothly was appreciated so much by myself and my family.
