Find a funeral director in Richmond upon Thames

When you are looking for a funeral director in Richmond upon Thames, it is worth considering your choices. You do not have to use your most local high street firm, the important thing is to find someone that you feel comfortable dealing with.

Some funeral directors (even if the name above the door still retains the name of the original founder) will be part of a large national network such as Dignity or Co-op. Others, like ourselves, are small independent family-run firms. So always check carefully to make sure you know if you are dealing with a national business or a local independent when making your decision of who to appoint.

At White Rose Modern Funerals we are a small team and will personally help and guide you through the process – you will always know exactly who you are speaking with.

We are very familiar with Richmond upon Thames, having helped numerous families from Barnes, East Sheen, Richmond, Fulwell, Hampton, Kew, Mortlake, St Margarets, Teddington, Twickenham and Whitton arrange a funeral for their family member.

Cremation funerals are most often held a local crematorium such as Mortlake Crematorium and we work with local cemeteries for burials. We also recommend alternative venues for funerals and welcome natural burials, especially where environmental impact is a consideration.
