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.

I appreciated Paul & Cheryl Yarwood’s  love and attention throughout these dark days. My Mother Mrs Lilly Joan Redman had the most beautiful Funeral Service I have ever attended. Their kindness and care in my grief was amazing. Every detail was explained to me very thoroughly and thoughtfully.  I shall never forget the timing and respect they showed. All my relatives felt the occasion was so lovely and mindful in honouring Lilly’s life and I cannot thank them both enough..    Mrs Maureen Fynn

Secure Haven was absolutely amazing and very personable and helpful. As it was just me and my 29 year old sister sorting everything out, they went the extra mile to ensure we were fully supported and ultimately helped us to put on an amazing service for my mum. I will recommended them should the occasion arise. Thank you!
