Guide to Funeral Directors in Bridgend

Bridgend (or Pen-y-bont ar Ogwr in Welsh) is a town in the Mid Glamorgan area of Wales about halfway between Cardiff and Swansea. At just under 50,000 people, its local authority area is nearly three times larger at around 140,000.

There is a wide choice of funeral directors in Bridgend, despite its small size. There are four funeral homes close to the centre of town, but you will find eight in total within a ten-mile radius.

The main cemetery serving the town is Bridgend Cemetery, but there are others at nearby Laleston and Porthcawl, and Coychurch is the main crematorium. Administrators for these facilities will take booking details from family members or funeral directors in Bridgend.

Bridgend Council accommodates special burial needs, such as non-denominational and specific religious requirements where possible. Roman Catholic burial needs are facilitated at Sarn and Pencoed, and Muslim interments can be accommodated at Laleston. Porthcawl and Bridgend Cemeteries allow full memorials and all will have a memorial area for the interment of cremated remains.

Bridgend cemetery has a chapel that is open to either religious or non-religious ceremonies and there is a large selection of Christian churches within the town. In nearby Sarn, there is a small mosque but many larger centres for Islam and other faiths can be found in nearby Cardiff and Swansea.

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 service 

Angela Leigh 3 months ago

Our care was transferred to Julia in Penarth after an upsetting start in Llantwit but from there on the care, attention to detail, compassion, understanding and communication was truly outstanding, Julia was absolutely wonderful throughout the whole process and totally understood what we as a family wanted for our mothers care and service....thank you for making a very difficult time easier.

A great and professional service

Tony Packer 3 years ago

At a most difficult time it was a delight to have Richard with us to look after every single aspect of the arrangements. At every single step he was there in the background taking care of everything in meticulous detail to the highest professional standard. It felt like he was a family member and we were reassured and felt calm that everything was taken care of. Richard and his staff provided a level of service that far exceeded and surpassed the larger corporate companies. We were also very surprised to receive a very modest invoice from Richard despite the additional arrangements we asked for to ensure Dads passing was memorable. Richard, you are true gentleman and of the highest professional standard. Mother and I extend our sincere gratitude to you and are eternally grateful for your kindness. Regards Tony Packer
