About our Pontypridd funeral home

At Maesgwyn Funeral Directors in Church Village, we are here to look after you, your family and your loved one in this difficult time. Our responsibility is to put you first and ensure we tailor your loved one’s funeral to your every wish.

You can find our funeral home on Main Road in Church Village; just down the road from The Village Arms and round the corner from Church Village Post Office. We are a pillar of the community and have served the local neighbourhoods of Llantwit Fadre, Beddau, Hawthorn, Rhydyfelin, Glyntaff, Treforest and Pontypridd for many years.

We pride ourselves by providing you with a service of the highest quality. Our main goal is to organise a farewell that is truly unique and personalised to reflect the way your loved one lived their life. You can pick every last detail of the funeral, from the music to the floral tribute, through to the route the cortege takes; no request is too big or small.

Using the experience we have gained over the years, we have arranged funerals of all types. If you have any religious beliefs, we have the knowledge to respect any and all traditions. For your convenience, we are about a quarter of a mile from both the Salem Baptist Church and Bethel Baptist Church. If you are not religious, we can cater for you too; we are equally equipped to deal with non-religious and contemporary ceremonies such as humanist funerals and bright celebrations of life.

Our dedicated team are on hand 24 hours a day to support and assist you with anything you need. You can call us for advice or answer any questions you have.

Frequently asked questions

  • When someone dies, the first steps will depend on how and where the person passed away. Our step-by-step guides will walk you through the practical steps. For additional support and personal advice, please get in touch with us.


  • You don't have to make an appointment at our funeral homes. However, doing so will ensure that someone can be available to cater to your needs. When arranging a funeral, our Funeral Directors are happy to visit you in your own home, if required.


  • Third party funeral costs are additional charges which we will manage for you and attach to your single invoice. Get in touch with us to confirm costs and plan a funeral to fit your budget.


  • If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.


  • Dignity Funeral Plans let you pay for your funeral in advance and at today's price. It's a way of taking control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the funeral plan upfront.

The team at Maesgwyn provided an excellent service, which was warm and friendly, and we are most grateful to them for providing an excellent service for both my mothers' funeral in 2016 and my fathers' funeral on 28th September 2021.

The only minor thing I would say, is that it would have been helpful if the crematorium had made their requirements regarding the wearing of masks and not being allowed to sing at the service known, before the event. I appreciate that these are strange times with Covid, but it would have been nice to know beforehand.

As ever Paul and the team offered an excellent service and the quality of that service was the reason we came back to Paul to take care of my Dad, as he had done for my Mum.

Always helpful, friendly and sensitive to our needs, at a time of loss, we would recommend Paul and the team to others.

With our best wishes,

Greg & family

It’s not easy losing a loved one but Paul made the whole experience as straight forward as it could be. There was a funeral plan with dignity in place and I am convinced that this helped. Thank you Paul and Dignity.

The staff were very professional and came over as caring. Paul did all the arrangements exactly as we asked but unfortunately was away for the actual funeral, he handed over to Russell who was every bit as professional and caring as Paul. I would certainly recommend them.

I cannot thank Paul and his team enough, nothing was too much trouble. They understood that my husband was very clear in what he wanted for his funeral, "absolutely no fuss" but he had chosen all his own music and photo's with our own chosen celebrant. It was a lovely funeral and we could not have done this without Maesgwyn staff. Most professional and respectful.
