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.

Sillifants have done both our mum's funerals now. Martin and Sarah are such pleasant, calm and extremely helpful people. Nothing was too much trouble for the team which is just what is needed at such a stressful time. Highly recommended. Mike and Lyn Westaway.

A kind and understanding family run business. They were so helpful when we discussed the details and on the day were amazing - I could not recommend them more highly.

We have been extremely happy with the service provided. We felt that a great deal of respect and dignity was shown at all times for our beloved Les. We cannot thank them enough for their kindness to all family members and indeed their assistance with all of the arrangements which took a great deal of pressure away from us at this extremely difficult and sad time of our lives.
