Ed and Josh were exactly what we needed, from from initial contact until completion. Understanding, caring and professional people are exactly what is required in these circumstances and Brunskill fulfilled this.

We cannot thank Ed enough for his support during a very difficult time for our family. his communication was excellent from start to finish, always available to help. The funeral service itself was perfect and personal to my dad and our family. Highly recommend. Thanks again Ed and team.

Lucas Reid 22nd Oct 2021

I took some time to decide on a funeral director for my late father. On doing research, I found that Brunskill Family Funerals was not only fairly local but also a true, family run business - something that seems to be becoming rarer with funeral directors. I cannot really say what my expectations were. While I have attended funerals in the past, I have never been required to organise one and, with it being a funeral for my father, I was quite concerned over my own ability to make the arrangements. Ed Brunskill of Brunskill family funerals made the whole process extremely easy. All the arrangements and organisation went incredibly smoothly, he was very detailed and explained the process clearly. He also was always readily available to speak to and took a great deal of time to ensure everything went perfectly. I cannot thank Ed and Josh enough for ensuring the funeral went as well as it did. I could not have expected any better and, while I hope not to need to arrange funerals in future, should the worst happen Brunskill Family Funerals will be my first call.

Religious funerals of any faith and denomination, and non-religious and humanist services can be arranged. If a non-attended funeral is preferred then Ed and Joshua are also happy to organise direct cremations.

    Brunskill Family Funeral’s delivered an excellent service. Ed was brilliant. He answered every question and the service from start to finish was done with compassion. It was a daunting task arranging my mothers funeral but Ed was thoughtful and made the process ‘worry free’.

  • 5 Sue Dorrell 12th Oct 2021

    Ed & the whole team were so supportive & professional throughout. We originally had to call them out around 3am and no questions, they were there within 30 minutes. From then on, they guided us through the process of arranging the funeral, listening carefully to our wishes. I would recommend them without hesitation.

  • 5 Rod Jones 8th Oct 2021

    After calling up a couple of other Funeral Directors in the area, I tried Brunskill Family Funerals and speaking with Ed I quickly realised I had found what I needed: a caring, knowledgeable and reliable service. I have no hesitation in recommending Brunskill Family Funerals. Thank you Ed and team.

  • 5 Amy Gibbs 30th Aug 2021

  • 5 Sophie Allum 18th Aug 2021

    When my beloved Father passed away, my Mother and I were overwhelmed. We decided that we wanted to use a family run Funeral directors who would add a personal touch. From the first contact we made with Brunskill Family Funerals we knew we had made the right decision. Ed Brunskill was compassionate and understanding and took care of us personally from start to finish. He was available to support us 24/7 and guided us through every stage of the process.  We had complicated requests with a celebration of life, traditional and Muslim elements for the burial. Nothing was too much trouble for Ed and his team and they took care of every detail.  Ed treated my Dad with care and respect and made us feel he was still important. Ed and his son Josh put lots of special touches in place for us including the most beautiful photo tribute.  On the day, everything went as well as it could have. Ed, Josh and their team were professional and respectful throughout and ensured the day ran smoothly. Everyone commented at how beautiful the service and burial were and my Dad got the send off he deserved.  It takes a very special kind of person to do what Ed and Josh did for us and we will always be so grateful.  We would highly recommend them if you should require a personal service from a family run business. Thank you Ed, Josh and team from the bottom of our hearts x.

  • 5 Vince Polley 7th Jul 2021

    I would highly recommend Brunskill funeral services. They provided a professional and efficient service. They were caring and empathetic at a very emotional time. Thanks are not enough to express how grateful we are.

  • 5 Lisa Ross 23rd Jun 2021

    Ed and the team made Mum’s funeral as special as it could be.  Brunshill took over from another funeral director when we were struggling.   Ed came to my Father’s home and spent a calm, considerate morning with us. He guided us with the care and respect we needed. From our first contact Ed was available for help and advice, always prompt with replies. He guided us and made us know that Mum was in safe, respectful hands.   The administration aspect of arrangements were discreetly taken care of, giving us time to make decisions on how we wanted the day to be. Ed continued to check in and visit, always reassuring us on this difficult journey.  On the day of the funeral the team were true professionals. The Cars were spotless. They made sure everything went as well as it could.   I feel we got a service above and beyond, yet the cost was fair.   This is a difficult time made easier by Brunskill. We can’t thank you all enough.  

  • 5 Lisa Brum 22nd Jun 2021

    Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things that a family has to deal with. Ed and his wonderful team took great care of our family from start to finish explaining everything along the way. Unlike many funeral companies they didn't try and upsell additional items and tried their best to keep the cost affordable. They collected my brother in a timely manner which meant a great deal to us as we didn't want him to stay where he was. They provided all information and advice about the service and recommended a wonderful funeral celebrant who conducted a most beautiful service. They kept in constant contact making sure we knew everything that would happen at each stage. If I need a funeral director again in the future there is no doubt in my mind who I'd choose. If you are looking for a family ran funeral directors who genuinely cares then look no further than Brunskill. They will take good care of you and your loved one.

  • 5 Lisa Demetriou 24th May 2021

    Brunskill family funerals were absolutely wonderful in organising my Grandmother’s funeral recently. I honestly can’t recommend Ed and his team enough.  Funerals are a challenge at the best of times but Ed made the entire arrangements from start to finish absolutely seamless, nothing was too much trouble.  There is no question that we will use Brunskills for our funeral arrangements when the time comes in the future - thank you so much for looking after our family so well and to all your team who were professional, compassionate and understanding.  Until next time.... Best regards, Susie Higgs

  • 5 Heather McMahon 18th Dec 2020

    From the first phone call to Ed at Brunskill Family Funerals to the funeral service I couldn’t have had more professional help, guidance understanding and genuine care for me and the family. When you loose a loved one it’s the most devastating and emotional time, Ed advised me and took a lot of worry about arrangements off my shoulders. He was a tower of strength thank you Ed from me and the family. I would recommend Brunskill Family Funerals for a kind and courteous service.

  • 5 Fiona Want 18th Nov 2020

    We cannot recommend Brunskill Family Funerals enough; their compassion and professionalism are outstanding. Ed recently helped us through the loss of my Fiancé’s father. Being only 26, planning a funeral was not something we expected to be doing and we were completely lost. From the very first phone call, Ed was so caring, calm and always made time to help us with anything we needed. He took care of everything, making things as straightforward as possible for us and helped us to give Mike the best send off we possibly could given our financial situation, never once being pushy or trying to up-sell. Nothing is too much trouble for Ed and it is evident he genuinely cares for his clients with his support continuing beyond the day of the funeral. If you were to find yourself in the awful situation of losing a loved one, Brunskill Family Funerals will act with integrity and empathy to ensure your loved one receives the dignified send off they deserve.

  • 5 Maureen O'Connor 30th Sep 2020

    Brunskill Family Funerals were recommended to us by a good friend. As soon as we were introduced to Ed we knew we had made the right choice. He is so professional, caring, compassionate and friendly, nothing was too much trouble.  He helped us all along the way, advising us, taking things out of our hands and quietly sorting everything in a calm and professional manner. Ed and his team showed the utmost respect to our mum and for that we are truly grateful. Ed is a credit to his profession and we have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone. Thanks again Ed.
