Who We Are
Our service is provided by Anthony & Lisa Dolby who are dedicated Funeral Directors with a wealth of knowledge and experience gained over many years helping bereaved families. This understanding and expertise has been passed onto their dedicated staff to ensure that from the moment of your first contact with us and throughout the whole process of arranging a funeral you can be assured of receiving a service that will not compromise on quality.
We appreciate how difficult it is to cope with emotions during a time of grief, so we guarantee to provide a caring and compassionate service that is approachable and responsive to your every requirement and concern.
By listening to you we will respectfully guide you, making sure the final act of saying goodbye is done with the utmost respect for your loved one and your family.
Our fleet is beautifully maintained with our black hearse and up to two limousines routinely at your disposal and the option of more if required.
If your loved ones require something a little different for example, we can provide a Horse Drawn Hearse, either in black or white or a different form of hearse such as a VW hearse or a motorcycle hearse.
If you have any particular requirements all you have to do is let us know and we will accommodate your request.
If you would like to be involved in arranging and paying for your own funeral in advance, this can give peace of mind to both yourself and your family. Our pre-payment plans offers a range of options from keeping everything as simple and low key as possible, to the most detailed of plans. Each type of plan can be completely personalised to suit your individual needs and all are underwritten by a leading funeral plan Company. Our nominated funeral plan Company is Golden Charter – please click on their link to review their website www.goldenchartertrust.co.uk

98 Lowtown Street,
the Government’s Guidance, we are unable to conduct home visits for funeral
arrangements but as an alternative, this can be done via phone, email, and
post. We are trying to reduce appointments in the office to adhere to the
social distance guidelines set out by the Government, however, if you feel it
necessary an appointment can be made by phone but only three people will be
permitted at the appointment. Even if you feel it necessary you will not
be granted an appointment should you or any members of your family be
experiencing any flu-type symptoms, have a fever, or persistent
cough. If you have to attend our premises for an appointment we must
advise you our staff will be wearing some form of PPE. In these
unprecedented times, we feel the need to protect ourselves, to stay fit and well
so we can be available to all families when called upon. Please note it
is mandatory to wear a mask if you have to visit our offices.
