Truro Funeral Directors


Guide to Funeral Directors in Truro

The county town of Cornwall, Truro is the most southerly city in the UK. A picturesque city that thrived during the boom in tin mining during the 18th and 19th Centuries, the town centre is dominated by the cathedral, completed in 1910.

Largely of British origin, about half the population of Truro identify as Christian and around a third as non-religious. This means that while funeral directors in Truro will be able to offer traditional funerals, they may also be able to help in arranging secular or Humanist services. Sixteen churches serve Truro’s population of 21,000. Other faiths are represented further afield, with Baha’i meetings in Hayle.

There are eight funeral directors in Truro and its surrounding areas. The city itself has one cemetery at St Clement’s Hill and there are also a further four nearby in the Redruth area and one in Falmouth. Penmount Crematorium, on a secluded estate on the edge of Truro, serves the whole of Cornwall and also offers a natural burial ground.

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

We found all the personnel very helpful, kind, thoughtful and patient with the arrangements of my husbands funeral. Can’t thank them enough.

The service given by Mr Hackett was exemplary. He offered what I had been unsuccessfully seeking from other funeral service providers. At a most difficult time for me, he listened and lightened the strain. I am very very grateful for his help.
