The county town of Lincolnshire can trace its heritage back to Roman times and has a number of famous buildings including its castle and the Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Lincoln, otherwise known as Lincoln Cathedral.

There are around 10 funeral directors, including both independent and national providers, who offer funeral services in Lincoln. As well as religious ceremonies, funeral directors in Lincoln will be able to arrange Humanist or secular funeral services for those who do not follow any particular religion.

Lincoln’s major places of worship include Lincoln Cathedral, Lincoln Mosque in Orchard Street and Lincoln Synagogue in the historic heart of the city. Cremation services are held at Lincoln Crematorium and there are five City Cemeteries serving the local community, with graves available to purchase for traditional burials, or for placing cremated remains.

Thank you so much for making a difficult day an enjoyable one.

Amanda Cooper 1 year ago

From the first call I knew we were in safe hands. Everyone was respectful, kind and  empathetic. Our requirements were listened to and nothing was too much trouble. The attention to detail before the funeral meant that on the day everything went as planned and we were all able to pay our respects without worrying about the service.  Our enormous thanks to Sue, Michelle, Kirsty and the reception ladies for their help and support.

Through this desperately difficult time the service provided was not just professional but I felt personally taken care of. The caring attitude was apparent from the receptionist to the funeral director and every staff member between.
