William Purves Funeral Directors

Business Overview
It’s not easy raising the subject of dying and funerals. For many people it’s still a taboo subject, something best left unmentioned. Yet there is great comfort in knowing that you have given your loved one the funeral they wanted, one that is truly reflective of their values and the things that were important to them.
There is no right or wrong time to talk about funerals. You can plan ahead for yourself, or someone close to you, with our free and simple Plan of Wishes. Or you can go a step further and explore an affordable pre-payment funeral plan.
