A traditional funeral is a dignified choice for your loved one, and here at Chelsea Funeral Directors, we are a long-established funeral home with a wealth of experience in creating meaningful, traditional services. We are a family-run, independent funeral directors, and all of our services are completed to SAIF standards. Our priority is assisting grieving families in any way we can, and making the process of arranging a funeral as simple as possible.
Our team are experienced and professional, and will take care of all the arrangements with great attention to detail, including aspects like the flowers, reception, music requirements and newspaper announcements.
We provide a range of classic choices for our traditional funerals, such as veneered or solid wood coffins, and distinguished black Mercedes hearses and limousines. Every aspect of our funeral services are bespoke, so you can make sure it will fit exactly what your loved one requested. This means you can choose mostly traditional funeral services, such as a religious service and a churchyard burial, but also have more personal aspects, like a motorcycle and sidecar for the hearse.
Here at Chelsea Funeral Directors, we believe a funeral should be a unique, meaningful tribute to your loved one – which is why all of our funeral services are bespoke. After 130 years in the profession, we are well-equipped to meet your needs and provide an understanding and professional service. We will guide you through the process and you can tailor the service to your requirements and your loved one’s wishes.
Recently, people have begun to think of a funeral as a celebration of life, and this means they are looking to make it a more personal occasion. With our bespoke funeral services, you can honour your loved one in a less sombre way than people have traditionally, and create a unique tribute to their life.
There are a variety of ways you can personalise the funeral, as we offer both religious and non-religious services, and a range of other options including burials or spreading ashes at sea, woodland burials, or traditional churchyard burials. You can choose to add special touches to the service as well, such as releasing white doves, having a horse drawn hearse, or opting for an eco-friendly, willow coffin.
Here at Chelsea Funeral Directors, our simple funeral honours your loved one in a modest and meaningful way. We understand the importance of offering affordable funerals, and ensuring the funeral remains dignified and personal as well. Our aim is to relieve some of the burden of arranging a funeral by taking care of everything and having a variety of options for you to choose from. Whether your loved one requested a less ceremonious service, or you have particular requirements and need to look after your family’s financial welfare – our limited service funerals are a simple yet elegant solution.
We have been established for 130 years, and strive to deliver personal attention and professional advice for our affordable funeral services. All of our funerals are bespoke, so if you are organising an inexpensive funeral service you can choose to have some parts more simple and still add a few personal touches. Our compassionate team will assist you every step of the way and explain the available options for our low-cost funerals, such as a classic, modest coffin, a traditional black hearse and a simple burial or cremation.
It is a common misconception that funerals have to be religious, as in fact, they are personal occasions that can be tailored to your loved one’s wishes. With over half of the UK population identifying as having no religion, non-religious funerals are becoming more frequent, and so here at Chelsea Funeral Directors we make sure to offer a variety of non-religious funeral service options. The service can be as traditional or modern as is required, such as a non-religious graveside service, cremation, burial at sea, or even a woodland funeral. We have been providing professional, bespoke funeral services for 130 years, and our priority is giving personal attention to everyone that comes to us.
A humanist funeral is a ceremony that celebrates someone’s life without incorporating a deity or any religious aspects. As our funeral services are bespoke, we will communicate with you about your loved one’s beliefs and wishes, and then create a service that suits your requirements; with every type of service, our aim is to create a personal, unique tribute to your loved one. You can choose to personalise a range of specific aspects of the service, such as releasing doves, having bagpipes playing, and using a horse-drawn carriage for the hearse.
Religion is a significant part of a person’s life, and here at Chelsea Funeral Directors, we understand how important it is to incorporate traditions and beliefs into funeral arrangements. As a member of SAIF, we are always striving for high standards of service, so you can trust us to arrange a religious funeral for your loved one in a respectful and professional manner.
Our religious funeral services cater to a range of faiths, and we can incorporate as many religious elements into the funeral service as is needed. The service can take place at a place of worship, or another place such as by the sea, in a park or in a crematorium if that is appropriate.
Whether your loved one has requested a full Christian funeral, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, or a Catholic funeral, our experienced team will ensure everything is suitable and reflects their beliefs. We understand that a religious funeral can mean the arrangements are more complex, and we are flexible and dedicated, making sure we know what is needed for everything from a Christian burial service to a Hindu cremation.
