About our Swindon funeral home

We are A E Smith & Son Funeral Directors and you can find us on Queens Drive in Swindon, between Burger King and Queens Drive Post Office. For the entrance to our funeral home you will need to go around to Dudmore Road; the car park is next to the Queenstown Working Men’s Club.

It is our responsibility and honour to look after you and your loved one as if you were one of our family members. With this in mind, we will cater your loved one’s funeral to fulfil your every wish; no matter how big or small. If you want to change some of the simpler aspects like the music, the transport, the hymns or the floral tribute, or create something completely unique and different, we will help you.

Our duty is to take as much pressure off you as possible. We are experienced in dealing with all types of funerals from woodland burials to religious services to bright celebrations of life.

Since 1880, we have been giving Swindon and the local communities of Walcot, Dorcan, Covingham, Gorse Hill, Extension and Stratton an outstanding standard of funeral care.

Our funeral home has a fully air conditioned chapel of rest, so you can spend time with your loved one before the day, and we can accommodate up to 20 friends and family in our service chapel.

Looking after you at all times is our number one priority, which is why we have a dedicated and compassionate team available day and night to ensure our high standards of care are always met..

To see the staff wearing orange ties (my wife's favourite colour) was very thoughtful and appreciated. To arrange for three family members to carry the coffin meant a lot to everyone involved. Everything on the day was arranged with such professionalism.

I cannot praise everyone at AE Smith and Sons enough, you made an emotional day into a day to remember for all the right reasons

The staff at A E Smith & Son were amazing, they were so kind and considerate. They were also very patient as we needed to make decisions with other family members who didn’t live locally and we needed to come back to them over the period of the fortnight. They showed respect towards our father and catered for his and our needs. On the day of the funeral, our own funeral director was there with and for us in our hour of need. The attention to small details made a big difference. The monitor at the funeral showing dad’s interest in trains, the help with the beautiful flowers. They provided an excellent service and we are truly grateful. Thank you.

Throughout this incredibly difficult time the service the family received was 5 Star. No request was too much, no question too silly. Any information was provided without prejudice. Each step of the process was explained clearly.
