Guide to Funeral Directors in Exeter

Exeter is a medieval cathedral city famed for its beautiful architecture and religious and cultural importance. It is the county town of Devon, and home of Devon County Council. The city has a population of approximately 125,000 people, served by 11 funeral directors.

Compared to other English cities, Exeter has a higher proportion of Christian residents, though around four per cent of residents are of Asian heritage. Exeter also has a significant Chinese population, thanks in part to its renowned and respected university. This means that some funeral directors may have experience catering to a range of cultural traditions and religions. Check with your chosen funeral director to ensure they can meet any requirements you have.

The Exeter and Devon Crematorium, situated off Topsham Road, is independently run, while East Devon Crematorium is situated between Exeter and Honiton and is privately run. Exeter City Council is responsible for the management of three graveyards in and around the city: Exwick Cemetery, Higher Cemetery and Topsham Cemetery.

Excellent, helpful and sympathetic. This is the fourth time I have used Sillifants and wouldn't hesitate to use them again (but hopefully not for a very long time!).

Absolutely perfect service. You've handled the situation delicately and appropriately. I couldn't have asked for a better send off for my brother.
