We offer the choice of three funeral options. The Attended Funeral, which you can tailor to however you wish to say goodbye to your loved one; the Unattended Funeral, which provides a dignified cremation, but without a service or mourners; and The Bristol Funeral, which also offers an unattended cremation but with a service held at one of the beautiful venues available in our Silver, Gold and Platinum packages.
View our Standardised Price List, Additional Options Price List and Crematoria Price List.
The Attended Funeral provides a tailored and dignified goodbye for your loved one. Whether traditional or contemporary, you can pay your respects in the supportive company of family and friends.
The Unattended Funeral is a lower cost option that allows family and friends to remember your loved one in their own way, without the need for a traditional service or ceremony.
Celebrate the life of your loved one with a special service at one of our local venues. The service is followed by a dignified but unattended cremation at a crematorium chosen by us.

My father, sister and I would like to thank Oliver and the other staff for all their help and support arranging my late mother's funeral.

R Davies Funeral directors could not have been more helpful with the funeral for my mother, it was much easier than I had expected, they were understanding and extremely professional.
