The service my brother and I received from Anthony and Helen was excellent from start to finish. Clear communication, compassion, attention to detail, friendliness, sincerity- nothing was too much trouble. We have never had to organise a funeral before and they made the experience so easy.

About Us

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

The origins of the Heanor funeral home go back to the Second World War, when Ernest Brewin started a joiner's workshop and undertakers - at that time a common combination - on Abbott Street. His nephew Jack Gillott later bought the business from his uncle, and the business became Gillotts Funeral Service. Jack's son-in-law Anthony Topley joined him in the business, and in 1992 when Jack retired, the business merged with Eastwood & District Funeral Service, and Anthony became part of the newly formed partnership.

The team at the Heanor funeral home consists of funeral directors Anthony Topley and Helen Ellis, and Funeral Administrator Amanda Outram, who all have years of experience and will be on hand to guide you through every step of the funeral arrangement.

Gillotts Funeral Directors has its own fleet of modern and reliable Jaguar hearses and limousines, ensuring that you can travel with dignity and comfort to the funeral.

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

    Gillotts Funeral Directors Heanor have provided the care and support for my family over a number of years. The Team at Heanor have been excellent on every occasion ensuring that an emotionally difficult situation is made so much easier by their help and advice. I would highly recommend.

  • 5 Janet Williams 24th Jun 2022

    Gillotts at Heanor, what can we say; they make the most difficult time easier, they are supportive, caring, understanding and just so attentive. Nothing is too much trouble, they create a relationship with the family and ensure that everything you want is there - they are there. The planning and preparation during this time is like no other yet you are allowed to mourn and grieve because Gillott’s take care of the things your head cannot comprehend and doesn’t have space for. From beginning to end they are faultless; the day is a celebration of life because Gillott’s listen and make sure the day is all about the deceased and the family left behind. Every decision and detail checked, it’s as if they know what you want even when you’re not sure yourself, they offer options, suggestions and are a guide but it all is made to your wanting - it is personal, it is important and it is done with the most care from the most amazing staff.  We cannot thank them enough. 

  • 5 Malcolm Marshall 23rd Jun 2022

    Friendly, supportive, thorough and professional. Everything you need at a sad and stressful time. 

  • 5 Liz Goodrick 17th Jun 2022

    From the moment that I went through the door to make an enquiry, ALL their staff were courteous, kind and understanding. When we had made the decision to go with them, we were made to feel cared for, and nothing that we asked for was too much trouble. They were understanding about our concerns and towards the funeral date itself we felt that they were there just to accommodate our every wish. Their treatment of Dad was second to none, and on the day itself, they were discretion itself. They will be our future choice if ever we have the need....not too soon I hope.
