F Painter & Son Family Funeral Directors

Business Overview
Now in the fourth generation of the Painter family, Frank Painter & Sons are widely known & respected as Shrewsbury's only totally independent 4 Generation Family Funeral Directors. Founder of the business, Frank Painter, began serving the local community as a Funeral Director in 1939, followed in later years by his son Alan and more recently by Frank's grandsons Chris & Mike and great grandsons Alan & Ben.
It has always been of paramount importance to the firm to give every help, advice and assistance to bereaved families. Thus hopefully in some small way easing the trauma, uncertainty and distress caused by bereavement.
The greatest care, respect and dignity is at all time afforded to your loved one. Families who wish to, may visit their loved ones in private, purpose built, dedicated Chapels of Rest. The funeral service offered by ourselves is individually tailored to the requirements of the family concerned and is at all times under the direction and personal supervision of Mr Chris Painter and Mr Mike Painter, whose dedication and commitment is a mirror image of their father and grandfather before them.
We operate a personal service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Our service to you starts as soon as contact is made by yourself, either by telephone or calling in person to our offices. We operate a personal service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Our service to you starts as soon as contact is made by yourself, either by telephone or calling in person to our offices.
On initial contact we will ask you for preliminary details whereupon we may advise you as to the removal of your loved one to our chapels of rest as soon as possible. We would then arrange a suitable time to meet and make funeral arrangements, either in your home or at one of our offices to discuss all the options available in order to fulfil your personal needs and requirements for the funeral arrangements.
We will take care of on your behalf all the necessary paperwork, liaise with doctors, hospitals, ministers, speakers etc as appropriate.
