The service we received was second to none. From the first time we met with Marcus, right up until the day of the funeral. Marcus made the whole process far easier than we could ever have anticipated. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Thank you

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.

  • 5 Dean Bailey 9th Nov 2019

    From the very first time markus introduced himself to me he has been nothing but kind and amazingly helpful to me and my family on both a professional level and a personal level there was nothing he wouldn't do to accommodate us in putting my dad to rest. Unfortunately my mum passed away before we were able to put my dad to rest and with the help of D.G atwell (markus) we were able to postpone the cremation if my dad until both dad and mum were able to be put to rest together. I cant thank them enough for the very helpful and professional manner in which they conducted themselves. Thanks again D.bailey

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.
