About our Fonmon funeral home

At W James & Sons Funeral Directors, we pride ourselves on offering nothing but the best standard of funeral care. We are based in Fonmon, Barry, and have been serving our neighbouring communities of Llantwit Major, Penarth, Llancarfan, Cowbridge, St Athan and the rest of the Vale of Glamorgan for over 150 years.

It is our responsibility to help you and make this difficult time as stress free as possible. We will look after all of the arrangements and ensure that your loved one gets the send off they deserve; all you have to do is tell us your every wish. We will take our time to understand you and how your loved one lived their life so we can organise a personal and unique goodbye, which creates a lasting and special memory.

No matter how simple or elaborate, we will take care of all the details which can include arranging the service, cortege route, floral tributes and memorials. Whatever your preference, we can cater for you.

Throughout the decades, we have gained experience in planning funerals of all types; whether you favour a religious, traditional or contemporary ceremony, we have the expertise.

Looking after you as well as your loved one is our number one priority; we have a dedicated team on hand, seven days a week, night and day to support and guide you. If you need anything at all, please give us a call.
