F M & J Wait Funeral Directors

At F M & J Wait Funeral Directors, we serve families with the greatest care, from our funeral directors in Staffordshire.

About us

At F M & J Wait Funeral Directors we have served the local communities of Lichfield and Tamworth for over 200 years from our long standing funeral home on Bird Street.

Established by Frank Martin and John Wait, we have grown from being a renowned furniture maker and upholsterers, to being one of the most well known and respected funeral directors in our community.

The families we serve are at the heart of everything we do. For over 200 years the families that surround us have trusted us with the care of their loved ones and to arrange a loving funeral for them.

We love our community and do everything we can to give back to them. Our premises can be used, free of charge, for people to come and meet for whatever cause or need.

We regularly hold collections for the local food bank, have coffee mornings, participate in the Lichfield Bower and hold Christmas memorial services for families to come together and share memories of their loved ones.

We strive to provide the highest standards of funeral care with uncompromising compassion and continue to help the families in our care with dignity.
