From the very first phone call to actual funeral itself they were extremely professional and helpful in the planning particularly Joanne who was always ready to talk and make changes where necessary 

John Michael Dye 22nd Nov 2021

I cannot properly convey the help I received at this most difficult time, the patience, understanding and gently asking those most difficult questions. Guiding me through the service and helping put together the order of service, and also the suggestion of the most appropriate person to take the funeral service. All of this help to produce the most wonderful tribute to my wife, mother ,sister and friend to many, we could not have wished for more.

Tim Dawson 18th Nov 2021

Professional and competent, if detached.   Managed details by phone or email. Paul set things in motion, Joanne stepped in later. All went as planned.

About Us

Tracing their origin back to 1867, Gillotts Funeral Directors are a funeral director in Eastwood. They are proud to be an independent family business, offering caring and compassionate funeral services to families in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, although they are also happy to conduct funerals further afield if requested.

In 1867, Star Livery Stables on Victoria Street in Eastwood began providing horse-drawn hearses to local undertakers. The business continued to hire vehicles to undertakers throughout a wide area for many decades, until in the 1970's it became a fully fledged funeral service. In the 1980's it moved to its current location on the main road in Eastwood. Over the years, the business has grown to five funeral homes, through a merger with Gillotts Funeral Service - a long-running business in Heanor, and by opening satellite funeral homes in Stapleford, Kimberley and Selston.

As a true family business, the partners of the business are directly involved with its day to day operation of the funeral home. The partners are Barry and Elaine Hutsby, who have grown the Eastwood side of the business since the 1970's when they joined forces with Elaine's Aunt and Uncle, their daughter Joanne, and Anthony Topley, whose father-in-law founded the Heanor funeral home.

Gillotts Funeral Directors, Eastwood has its own fleet of modern and reliable Jaguar hearses and limousines, and can also arrange for bespoke transport such as horse-drawn hearses and motorbike hearses.

Gillotts Funeral Directors, Eastwood is open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, and on Saturdays from 9am to 12.30pm, with a 24-hour telephone service. Call now to find out more about the services they provide and begin making funeral arrangements for your loved one

    Very professional service Staff very understanding Highly recommended 

  • 5 Paul Wood 7th Nov 2021

    They have been very considerate, thoughtful and one step ahead of my needs. Thanks. However, I do believe that the initial meeting with Paul he could have made the poem available & got the costings and details right. The girls seem to have sorted it. 

  • 5 Gaynor Wild 7th Nov 2021

    Gillotts have been amazing throughout the whole ordeal of having to sort the funeral for my dad. They have been really accommodating and will happily make changes to the service whenever requested. They guided us through the whole process and helped make the horrible process that little bit more easy. So glad I went with them for arranging the service for my dad,it went perfectly on the day. 

  • 5 Carole Moore 2nd Nov 2021

    I cannot thank Gillotts enough for all their help  in organising my mum’s funeral. I live in Norfolk & thought that it would be so difficult to organise  but even from 100 miles away, Joanne & Claire helped me at every stage & to find Joanne there to lead us through everything on the day was so reassuring. Reverend Billy Nelson lead a lovely service and the flowers we ordered were beautiful. Again, ‘thank you’  is just not enough.  Carole Moore

    Excellent service, very professional

  • 5 Jayne Williams 23rd Oct 2021

    From start to finish everyone at Gillott’s, Eastwood has been simply wonderful. They are kind, respectful and dignified without being at all starchy or aloof. We felt that they genuinely cared about our family and our loss. My Grandad was clearly treated with the utmost care and respect which we could see when we visited him in the Chapel of Rest. Paul took us through all the arrangements in a gentle and respectful way whilst also keeping the discussions light and humorous where needed. He matched us with the perfect celebrant, Shirley Gray, who delivered the service beautifully. I spoke to Claire and Alison at various stages throughout the process and they were equally easy to talk to, helpful, caring and reassuring. Anthony looked after us on the day of the funeral and his caring, respectful demeanour made an incredibly difficult day just that little bit more bearable. The drivers were second to none, making our final journey with Grandad through the greenery of Cossall feel so special. We honestly cannot fault any part of the process at all and are so grateful to the whole Gillott’s team for helping us to give my Grandad the send off he truly deserved.
