Guide to Funeral Directors in Chesterfield

Chesterfield is a town in Derbyshire, in the Midlands. It is also the name given to the surrounding borough. The borough population is around 100,000. It has had a market town charter since the year 1204 from King John, and many archaeological finds show its Roman and Anglo-Saxon heritage.

Although a smaller town, there are plenty of facilities and 14 registered funeral directors in Chesterfield. There are four cemeteries locally, and the Chesterfield and District Crematorium is provided for by the Borough Council.

There are many Christian churches in Chesterfield, one the most famous being St Mary and All Saints that is famous for having a twisted spire. Services for funerals are often held in these churches, however, churchyard burials are problematic in that many are now closed to new burials due to space. Funeral directors in Chesterfield will be able to offer further advice.

Unfortunately, there are fewer places of worship for other faiths. To access temple and mosque services, Sheffield may be the best and closest local area provider. However, there is a separate Muslim burial section available in Brimington Cemetery.

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.

Amazing service from start to finish. Going the extra mile with family and ensuring that in the current circumstances our friend had the send off he deserved. Can not recommend JF Knight enough.

I can’t thank John enough for helping to send Dad off.   We were walked through the process throughly, helped every step of the way.  I never felt worried to ask questions, and nothing was too much trouble for them.   Thankyou.

J Knight and all their staff have been excellent in liaising with myself and sorting my mum's funeral efficiently. Everything was done beautifully. Nothing was too much for them to help me with my enquiries day or night. A huge thank you to them all.

Saying goodbye to dad was an extremely emotional day for all the family. The current situation involving restrictions on travel and socialising made arrangements more difficult than usual. In spite of all this JF Knight provided the family with all available options, including flowers, cards, music, an online solution for family and friends to leave memories of dad, a webcast service for those that could not attend the service and how we would like to coordinate the whole service, having as much involvement as we liked. This helped us through the process of providing dad a compassionate and well organised funeral service that he deserved and the result was second to none. We found JF Knight a true credit to the service and are highly recommended. Thank you.

Jamie dealt with my dad's funeral as if it was his personal friend that had died and made the whole experience a pleasure. Never rushed, always caring, and he made suggestions that were relevant. All good so thoroughly recommend.
