We are a small, well established, family-run company in Nailsworth, Stroud. Our approach ensures that each funeral arrangement is tailored to reflect both the character of the person who has died and also meet the individual needs of the family. At the very heart of everything we do is the knowledge that to be of any real service to the bereaved, practical help must be underpinned with clear advice & guidance and offered with tact and understanding. Whatever the circumstances of your bereavement may be, we have the experience and resources to help.
We are a small team and the funeral director that meets with you initially will remain your personal contact throughout the arrangements, including of course being present on the day to oversee the funeral itself. We can handle all practical arrangements on your behalf, but we also respect many people's desire to have a greater sense of ownership of the funeral arrangements and we will support you in actively participating in the making of funeral preparations if you wish to do this. In instances where you and your family or friends intend to arrange and carry out the entire funeral yourselves we can provide - on an a la carte basis - whatever level of advice and/or items of practical assistance that you may need to achieve your aims.

"A LIFE IN DEATH - Memoirs Of A Cotswold Funeral Director" by James Baker, takes the reader into the largely hidden world of death and funerals, as set against the picturesque back-drop of the Gloucestershire countryside. After spending twenty five years in the funeral profession so far, there is much that James can share with readers about his professional journey and his experiences. This book was written not just to entertain, but also to enlighten and hopefully, to reassure. Above all, it offers a whole new view into the practical reality of death and bereavement in contemporary Britain.
