Guide to Funeral Directors in Cardiff

Cardiff, the capital of Wales, is the tenth largest city in the UK with a growing population upwards of 345,000. It is the seat for the National Assembly of Wales, a cultural and sporting hub as well as being a popular tourist attraction.

There are approximately 30 funeral directors in Cardiff and its surrounding area, with a broad range of establishments to suit all requirements. Most communities and areas are catered for, and it should not be problematic to find a conveniently located funeral home in Cardiff.

Cardiff has significant ethnic diversity, due in part to the major maritime trading connections it had the past. It has well established African and Arab communities and a sizable Muslim and Asian community. Therefore funeral directors in Cardiff may have experience providing funerals for a range of religious beliefs and cultural traditions.

The main cemetery and crematorium for Cardiff is Thornhill, to the north of the city. Western Cemetery at Ely has provision for traditional graves and cremated remains. Traditional style memorial stones can be erected for Muslim, Jewish and Greek Orthodox burials. Pantmawr Cemetery, Llanishen Cemetery and Cathays Cemetery are to the North of the centre; the latter has seen the burial of many notable Cardiff figures and is the third largest Victorian cemetery in the UK. To the North West is St. John’s, Radyr Cemetery.

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.

Very professional service from start to finish

Janet Brown 2021-06-08 16:59:43

From start to finish The James Summers Team looked after us so amazingly well at such a difficult time in our lives.  Dominic who took Mum away the day she died was so kind and thoughtful.  Chris who coordinated everything from the Whitchurch office was outstanding.   The day of the service was seamless and was just the day we had planned from the  music to the order of service to the cars and lovely white coffin.  I so appreciated Dominic making sure he was part of the team on Friday. He and David Williams were just perfect and Trevor the driver of a car was very kind and helpful.   Thank you all so very much 

Paul Antony Chaundy 2021-06-07 23:09:22

Reliable, courteous, helpful, empathic, understanding and crucially supportive at a time of great stress and anxiety or as many might say, a crisis.  Thank you.
