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.

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.

Excellent support throughout

I am residing in Spain and had to arrange all of my mothers funeral service by telephone or email. Jane listened and took on board all of my requests. The celebrant Chris Cornell was provided by the Co op. On the day the service went exactly to plan and the service was just perfect. Many thanks for your kind, efficient service.

In these challenging times with funeral restrictions the support and guidance was there for me every step of the way and every reassurance was given to me that the service would be delivered impeccably abd indeed it was. I am very appreciative of this.

The very helpful staff at Great Baddow made the planning of the funeral easy and straightforward. All the information given was very clear. The occasion went smoothly and everyone who came to the funeral contacted me to say how very well it went.
