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.

    The family and I would like to say a special thank you to Helen and Amanda at Heanor for their support, kindness and guidance arranging my fathers funeral. It’s such a difficult time and they were patient with us as there are so many decisions to make throughout the process. The funeral although sad went very well and was well organised.

  • 5 Anne Tompkinson 4th Jun 2021

    When my Dad died it was very comforting to be able to turn to the Gillott's team to support our family through the process of arranging his funeral. From the first phone call arranging Dad's collection, we felt confident in the family ethos and professionalism of the company. We were guided through an unexpected post-mortem with reassurance and compassion. On the day of the funeral, we were overwhelmed by the beauty of the service and the personal touches available to us that made this special and memorable despite Covid restrictions. The cars and the flowers were stunning and the staff were immensely kind. My teenage children remarked that they would like to be able to do something as beautiful for us in their time and I completely understand. This left us with something beautiful to remember. Thank you.

  • 5 Barbara Exton 31st May 2021

    The service was beyond our expectations and the staff went above board to make it such a memorable event. It was all personal to us and thos could be felt from all the efforts put into incorporating our cultural and spiritual needs for mom. No job was too big for the team and we are very thankful for such. Dr B Exton

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?
