Guide to Funeral Directors in London

As the capital of the UK, with a population of over 8.5 million, London has the highest concentration of funeral homes, with more than 400 funeral directors operating across the city centre and the surrounding boroughs.

As a modern, diverse city, London is home to people of all different faiths, religious sects and beliefs, from different branches of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism, to Neopaganism, Wicca, and non-religious belief systems such as Humanism. Funeral directors in London offer services to meet all of these requirements, with some funeral homes specialising in funeral services for specific religions.

London offers a great deal of choice, with some of the oldest and most well-established funeral directors in the country, as well as modern, innovative firms and respected family-run independents.

Greater London is served by many different cemeteries and crematoria across different boroughs. While many of the older, historic cemeteries, such as Bunhill Fields, are now closed to new burials, approximately 28 cemeteries and seven crematoria are open and available.

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.

Excellent from start to finish. Compassionate, friendly, helpful staff. No job or question too small. Helped us through a very difficult time & made Dad’s final journey a fitting one.

The team at Welling were superb and helped us arrange everything for the funeral of our dear Dad with sensitivity and kindness. Christine in particular was brilliant at taking us through everything. On the day of the funeral itself, George was also fantastic. A, professional team, but with genuine human warmth.

I chose the Mears Carford Branch because they were the closest I could get to bringing my dad home before the funeral and I didnt want to go for a big chain. I had a long chat with Dianne over the phone before I decided to use them and she was lovely, and talked me through all my concerns and guided me through everything when I really didn't have a clue where to start. Everytime I popped in to the office Dianne and Yvonne were always lovely and honest which I appreciated especially when visiting my dad in the Chapel of rest. The service was lovely. Dianne suggested a Roman Catholic Priest who when we met I thought was ideal for us. Alan our Usher (sorry if that isn't the right word) Was amazing. He spoke with me the night before and was so supportive and understanding guiding us to and from the service and understanding what we wanted/needed. I really don't think the service could have gone better and I am so thankful to MearsFamilyFunerals for helping and supporting me to make it happen in the best way to put my dad to rest.

Thank you Elaine and John for bringing our precious Patty home to Deptford and Greenwich, the journey through Greenwich also the care and dignity you have shown to us all.  I know I speak on behalf of all our families but for a sad day it was Perfect .
