Watson's Funeral Directors

Business Overview
Watson’s Funeral Directors have been at the heart of the community since 1920. Whilst we still abide by many of the traditional values that our founders set out, but we also aim to move with the times, offering a professional, quality service in the modern world.

As a well established, privately owned business, we take great pride in what we do, and work tirelessly to provide the best service to every family we look after. Our vast local knowledge, coupled with many years experience in the funeral directing profession mean that we are able to offer a very personal level of service that is specific to your own requirements.

Arranging a funeral is a unique opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one and our caring and professional staff are available to guide and support you throughout. Whether you are arranging a funeral now, or looking to plan for the future with a funeral plan, our focus is to truly understand your needs. In doing so, we ensure that the funeral service is bespoke to you and your family.

From specific pieces of music, flowers, orders of service, a personalised coffin, obituary notices, organising a funeral reception, to monumental masonry and managing charitable donations, we will ensure that all your wishes are carried out to the highest standards and with genuine care for you and your loved one.

Here for you when you need us most.
