Formerly known as Thomas and Jarvis Funeral Service based in Steventon
Our professional staff bring a discreet and sympathetic approach and offer a range of expertise to help you through this difficult time. We are happy to provide emotional support and we are particularly attuned to the needs of those who have suffered a sudden bereavement. We are also familiar with and understand the requirements of particular ethnic and religious groups.
We have years of experience in the practical aspects of dealing with the death of a loved one and can provide assistance and guidance with all of the documentation and legal requirements involved when someone dies. We will liaise on your behalf with clergy and church and cemetery or crematorium to ensure that all necessary arrangements are made efficiently and correctly. We also deal with matters concerning the police or coroner whenever this might be necessary.
Death can occur at anytime and anywhere. We take full responsibility from the moment you contact us up to and beyond the day of the ceremony. We are available 24 hours a day to provide help, support, guidance and comfort.
