Thank you so much for the professional and compassionate manner in which our recent bereavement was managed. At this most difficult time it was comforting to be in such caring and reassuring hands throughout the whole process

Lorna Williams 30th Jun 2021

Nick, David and the team served my mum with the utmost care, dignity and respect.  My sisters and I were guided through the most distressing and emotional of times by their kindness, compassion, humour and consummate professionalism. I wholeheartedly recommend their service. (Thank you so much for everything you did.)

About Us

In 1921 Fitzroy Wedlake set up his funeral business in Higher Bugle, St Austell. It was later taken over by Mr Wedlake’s Son Geoff, who in turn handed the business over to his sons, Alan and Roderick. Alan looked after the funeral side of the business but sadly died young so his younger brother Roderick took over the business.

Nick Jago and David Michael have now been entrusted looking after the funeral home and attending to the funeral needs of the local community. They are both highly experienced and fully embedded in the local community, having both grown up and worked in the local area.

In 1989 the Purpose-built Chapel of Rest was built, and in 2018 the funeral home was completely refurbished to meet the needs of a modern funeral home. The home is fully equipped with a comfortable family arranging room and a peaceful chapel of rest, where you and your family can visit your loved one and say your final goodbyes.

Each funeral will be unique and meet the wishes of you, your loved one and your family. Nick and David are keen that a dignified funeral c​an also be an affordable one. They can arrange any type of service, from a traditional religious ceremony, to a modern celebration of life.

  • 5 Derek Jackson 4th Jun 2021

    Everything was catered for. It was planned really well and I was particularly impressed by the donations feature on their web site. It made donating to causes so much easier. I would highly recommend Wedlake both for quality of service and cost. 

  • 5 Annette Rook 3rd Jun 2021

    It’s something we all dread having to deal with but David and Nick, together with their Team, made sure Mum’s send off was dealt with much compassion and professionalism. Easy to speak to and very accommodating, David guided me through the process, whilst putting me at ease. I also wanted to use a local firm close to where Mum was brought up, married and laid to rest. Thoroughly recommend these Directors. Many thanks to you all.

  • 5 Graham Allen 2nd Jun 2021

    Both Nick and David were superb throughout the entire proceedings. Mum couldn’t have asked for a better send off.

    From the first contact with Wedlake Funeral Home everything was made clear about the funeral, notices in the papers etc . The information was passed to us clearly with all of the necessary details in a business like but dignified way. The funeral went exactly to plan.

  • 5 Wendy Vincent 21st May 2021

    Thank you to David, Nick and their team for the compassionate and meaningful way they conducted Dad’s funeral.  Their professional service and caring manner was second to none.  Dad was a true proud Cornishman who will always be our hero and thanks to David for taking Dad on his final journey to Treverbyn in his tartan kilt.

  • 5 Elizabeth Dunstan 21st May 2021

    Friendly service, made us all feel very comfortable making the arrangements. Would definitely recommend to others.

  • 5 Martin Roseby 21st May 2021

    The service we received was excellent, everything we needed was done to a very high standard, pleasant to deal with,caring and considerate.

  • 5 Ruth Sawyer 20th May 2021

    Couldn't have asked for a better service at such a difficult time.

  • 4 Ema Cavalier-Smith 20th May 2021

    My family and I are very pleased with and grateful for the care, understanding and attention provided by your service during this profoundly difficult time in our lives. I never felt rushed by David during the whole process of preparing for my late husband's funeral service and yet every aspect came together in a timely fashion for the crucial day. My only dissatisfaction was the permanent cross on the front panel of the lectern because my husband was a lifelong humanist and the cross therefore would doubtlessly have detracted from the non-religious service beautifully conducted by our humanist celebrant.

  • 5 Lyn Northcott 20th May 2021

    First class service 

  • 5 Shelley Truscott 20th May 2021

    Both Nick and David have been very professional throughout, what is an upsetting experience. They both made the process so much more bearable with their caring, empathetic and supportive nature. The personal approach they have shown throughout made us feel at ease in knowing our family member was getting the send off they deserved, which gave us tremendous peace of mind. 

  • 5 Neil Fernie 20th May 2021

    We were very impressed with the standard of service, the kindness and support we received. Thank you for making a difficult time just that little bit easier. X

  • 5 Andrew Hawke 20th May 2021

    Brilliant service, very cheap compared to others, nothing was to much.

  • 5 Andrew Hawke 20th May 2021

    Very patient kind and nothing was to much, I would recommend nick to anybody.

  • 5 Julie Flower 20th May 2021

    Would highly recommend Nick Jago
