Guide to Funeral Directors in Chelmsford

Chelmsford is the county town of Essex; it is located approximately 30 miles east of London which makes it prime commuter belt, and it has recently been promoted to the status of city. About 120,000 people live in the urban area of Chelmsford, with 168,000 in the larger conurbation.

There are currently 12 funerals directors in Chelmsford, with a further choice of around 18 located throughout the wider area, looking to provide a sympathetic service for bereaved clients. Many of these companies are long established, family run funeral homes with a great deal of experience.

The population is largely Christian according to the latest census figures and there are approximately 30 churches within five mile radius of the centre. The city and surrounding area, however, includes a high number of people who are non-religious, and so it may be comparatively easy to find funerals directors in Chelmsford who have had experience conducting secular funeral services.

Chelmsford city council runs the integrated Chelmsford crematorium and cemetery on Writtle Road. It is the only active cemetery within the boundaries of the city, although there are four others within ten miles, in such places as Braintree and Maldon.

The staff at Broomfield Road were excellent and took me through the process step by step - patiently and with sound advice. This was the first funeral I had ever had to organise and I was full of (transparent) trepidation. The thing I most admired was that they kept me informed of every step, as each step happened. They also anticipated things I might overlook - before I could overlook them. I felt that I could trust them straight away and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Most professional service ,  made to feel relaxed from day one.  No pressure into having anything that we didn’t want. Informative all the way  so we knew what was happening at all times.   My father had the best service for his celebration of life and so many people spoke of how nice everything was.  All with the help of Paul and his great team .  Can’t thank you enough for how you helped my mother and I through a sad time

Secure haven were caring, efficient and so helpful in a time of confusion and distress.  I can’t stress how respectful they were, always available to answer any questions and most importantly, the  funeral went like clockwork and all their recommendations were excellent

My experience with Secure Haven was second to none. They took such wonderful care of my family member and all of us too. They are compassionate, caring and so helpful I can’t thank them all enough for their organisation. The little details I asked for were carried out and it made everything involved with organising the day so calm. Thank you Paul, Paul and Cheryl for your brilliant personal service at all times. Jillian was the perfect choice as a Celebrant too, so thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
