Guide to Funeral Directors in Derby

Traditionally the county town of Derbyshire, Derby is a fascinating historical city and one of the birthplaces of the Industrial Revolution. From the 19th Century onwards, Derby grew from a market town into the centre of British railways and train manufacture, as well as an industrial hub of the north.

Serving a population of approximately 250,000 are around 21 funeral directors operating from 40 funeral homes. With a good variety of independent, family-run, or national companies, residents of Derby should have a good choice of local funeral directors.

According to the most recent data, Derby’s population comprises almost one-quarter BME (black and minority ethnicity) communities, including people of Pakistani and Indian heritage. Consequently, after Christianity and non-religious beliefs, Islam and Hinduism are the most common religions in Derby. As a result, you can expect most Derby funeral directors to be experienced in providing funeral services befitting a range of religious beliefs and cultural traditions.

Derby City Council is responsible for managing six cemeteries across the city, with new burial plots available in Nottingham Road Cemetery and Spondon. Burials in reopened graves or the interment of cremated ashes may be accepted at Uttoxeter Old Road, Normanton, Chellaston and Mickleover cemeteries. In additional, Markeaton Crematorium has facilities with two service chapels and a Garden of Remembrance.

I have nothing but the utmost praise for the professionalism of Angela and her team at Findern. The overall care and attention to detail was first class and I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Murray’s as funeral arrangers to any bereaved family requiring the highest level of support in times of need. Faultless.

From our initial enquiry through to the end of the funeral, everything was faultless. The staff were perfectly professional yet very friendly and helpful. We have used Lymn's service before and had no hesitation in choosing to use them again.
