About Us

Family-run Swansea funeral director DG Attwell is proud of its reputation for caring and personal funeral care. They are on call, day and night to provide supportive funeral service at a very upsetting time for local families.

Atwell’s funeral home in Brynhyfryd provides a warm and reassuring space to arrange a loved one’s funeral and how you wish for them to be remembered. It has its own chapel of rest, which can accommodate up to 50 mourners for a funeral service, with funeral director Elizabeth Worth and her caring team on hand to discuss funeral choices – from a simple cremation, to a traditional burial with a religious or non-denominational ceremony.

DG Atwell has its own modern fleet of funeral transport and can also arrange for a horse-drawn-hearse, as well as meaningful alternative ceremonies including woodland burial.

Aiming to provide bereaved families with unconditional support, home visits can be arranged, to help make the funeral process a little more reassuring at this difficult time and ensure that every detail is according to your wishes.

This Swansea funeral home is proud to uphold the high standards of the National Association of Funeral Directors and the Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors. Supporting people in Swansea through their bereavement since 1930, DG Attwell is proud to uphold its sincerely-held family value of helping other families.

Call DG Atwell funeral directors for compassionate funeral care when it is needed most.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?
