Mrs Catherina Brook 17th Dec 2020

If there were more stars I would rate the care that the funeral company Hadaway and Denton gave ten stars! Carl and Joanna went above and beyond with their care and compassion to make a very difficult time as painless as possible and nothing was impossible. Their attention to detail is unbelievable and I should know as I am Verger at our local village church and have been in contact with many funeral companies.

Nicky Hambridge 30th Nov 2020

From the first contact right through to the end of the service, Jo and Carl were the most compassionate and professional couple you would want to help you through. Nothing was too much trouble even within covid19 restrictions.

Hayley Jones 1st Sep 2020

Hadaway and Denton have been so supportive and helpful during this awful time. They covered everything, fufilled our odd requests and made this as easy as possible, acting with warmth, compassion and even joining in with our odd sense of humour. I cannot recommend them enough.

About Us

Hadaway & Denton Independent Funeral Directors is a family firm, which opened in Ashford, Kent to offer dignified care while striving for the highest levels of service. The caring team is focused on maintaining clear and transparent pricing and offering diversity and creativity.

Carl Hadaway and Joanna Denton have served the community of Ashford for years, upholding the highest levels of service and tradition. Carl was head-hunted by Earl & Co Funeral Directors in Ashford, Kent and after training as a Funeral Director soon became the Manager of the local firm. Carl believes in the value of independent funeral directors and when this local firm changed hands to a corporate company Carl moved onto the family firm ‘Dilnot Smith & Son’ before founding Hadaway & Denton. Joanna worked for 20 years as a music teacher, committed to caring for children and sharing her passion as a musician. She now uses this care and passion to serve families in the funeral business.

The Ashford funeral home has a chapel which offers a peaceful environment for families to visit their loved one. The premises were renovated in 2018 to ensure that they are family-friendly and comfortable. The funeral home includes a round table for family meetings and a children's corner. There is parking on site, and the front of the property is always kept clear for visiting families.

    Carl & Jo were caring, helpful and professional and put everyone at ease, especially the younger members of the family. They were very helpful in arranging the funeral quickly to accommodate a family member that was due to leave the country. The horses and carriage were beautiful. The order of service & photos were lovely too, again arranged quickly. Carl arranged for the service to be webcast as the number allowed to attend was limited, this allowed family and friends who were unable to attend to view the service too. We would certainly recommend Hadaway & Denton.

  • 5 Anthony Peters 27th Jul 2020

    We cant praise Hadaway & Denton highly enough. The service we received from Carl and Jo was exemplory. At a difficult time. you need things to go as smoothly as possible and it could not have been better. When you also add in the extremely reasonable charges we feel this could not have been bettered and we definitely made the right choice. Thank you so much. Tony and Joan.

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?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
