We understand that the loss of a loved one can be a distressing time, particularly if there are worries regarding funeral arrangements and the associated costs. That is why we believe it is important to offer a professional, affordable service without compromising quality.

We have a passionate commitment to providing a personalized, consistent and caring approach, where we will guide you through an arrangement, being with you at every step, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Here at Knapman Family Independent Funeral Directors, we believe that everyone is different and therefore we have tailored our services to be bespoke, allowing you to personalise your own tribute and funeral for your loved one. We provide a service where your wishes are our principal concern and where arrangements are able to reflect the life of your loved one and to enable you to say goodbye in your own unique way.
