Thank you for your help. The day of the funeral went very well. My family was grateful for the help from the celebrant too, her name was Lucy and she helped write the service that was read at the crematorium. Fran

I wasn't sure which funeral director to use as I've not had to sort out a funeral before. I had no idea what to do and needed extra help and time to think through what I needed to do. I'm very grateful for the advice I was given over the phone by Graham in particular, as he looked after us whilst we were trying to arrange the details for the service we wanted. On the day I didn't need to think about anything other than my family, everything was taken care of, Alex the conductor was very attentive and smart. We received lots of comments about the order of service booklets that were printed as they included lots of old photos that had not been seen for a long time. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I was recommended to use Holmes and Family by a close friend who had used them before for her mum’s funeral.  Right from the first call we made it was obvious that we had found the people we wanted to work with. We were very uncertain about what was best, but they had endless patience whatever we threw at them.  We took ages to choose a coffin and went back and forth with the service booklet for the funeral service changing the music several times. Oliver Holmes was always a gentleman and on the day of the funeral at Hanworth, all of the men who carried the coffin were kind and very smart. We can’t thank Holmes enough and would recommend them to anyone who sadly needs to choose a funeral director. I would give them 100 stars if I could.

About Us

Holmes & Family Funeral Directors is a family owned funeral director in Ashford, who have been serving the local community with compassionate and caring funeral services for over 40 years.

Oliver and David Holmes, together with their small team of dedicated and compassionate staff, make Holmes and Family your local highly respected and trusted funeral director. The Holmes family have years of experience, acquired through building trust and relationships with people in the community. Oliver, David, and the team are supported by Madeleine and Laurence Holmes, while other family members contribute too, helping with bookkeeping, marketing, maintenance and attending funerals during busy periods.

Holmes and Family was created in 2006, with the first branch opening in Fleet Hampshire. There are now modern well-equipped Holmes funeral homes in Sandhurst, Aldershot, Farnborough, Staines, and Ashford, Surrey. These days Oliver Holmes is in day-to-day charge; he is assisted by Alex and the team who between them have won coveted funeral awards and gained an enviable reputation for the high standards we set ourselves. This is not our job, it’s a vocation and every person we look after receives the same high level of care.

From a simple or traditional funeral to a modern celebration of a life well lived, Holmes and Family are dedicated to making it perfect with a personal and friendly service. The Holmes family will be involved in every aspect of the funeral and will usually meet with you before the funeral takes place. If this is not possible, they will telephone you to introduce themselves. The team of staff are caring, friendly and professional, and share a passion to provide the most caring helpful service to you when you place your faith in them.

Holmes & Family are now based on Convent Road, and parking is easy at the Ashbury funeral home. The new premises are very modern and comfortable, with all of the necessary facilities to care for you and your loved one.

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. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

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?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
