I would recommend Taylor's Funeral Service to anyone.  Sam, who I spoke to first was very kind and understanding.  As it is a small family business you get a very personal service.  Jayne and Mackenzie were very understanding and efficient at dealing with everything we needed.

About Us

Helping people pay their respects to a loved-one their own way, is what funeral director Sam Taylor strives to do.

Inspired to provide a comforting and independent service that reflects what is important to families in the local community, experienced funeral director Sam opened the doors of this Dorridge funeral home in 2017.

Sam’s aim is for every funeral to be respectful, fitting and fulfilling. Taylor’s support people in the Solihull area to arrange a funeral that reflects their individual wishes or tradition and honour their loved one’s life.

As members of the local community they serve, Sam and his team are committed to support the bereaved, from the moment they make that first, very difficult phone call – day or night.

The funeral home on Station Approach is a comfortable and reassuring space to talk about your loved one and feel supported. Happy to arrange home visits to families who would feel reassured by this, the premises also has a peaceful chapel of rest for quiet contemplation, while bereavement counselling is also available.

Sam and the team at Taylor’s understand that at a very difficult time, it can be helpful to have options to make the decision-making process easier. Taylor’s Independent Family Funeral Directors has created three straightforward funeral service packages and provides helpful details of other funeral costs. Golden Charter funeral plans are also available for people considering their own funeral wishes, according to heritage, beliefs or personal choice.

Taylor’s Independent Family Funeral Directors’ optional services also include a personalised floristry consultation. This family-run funeral home is a member of the trusted National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF),

Call Taylor’s Independent Family Funeral Directors at any time of day or night for help, guidance and caring funeral service at the heart of the Dorridge, Knowle and Solihull community.

  • 5 Paul Hubbard 26th Jul 2020

    From first contact Taylor’s were excellent and made the whole process simple.  This was even more impressive given the changing regulations around funerals at the time and that the funeral was held around 200 miles away.  

  • 5 Jayne McGowran 20th Jul 2020

    From when I first spoke to Sam from Taylor’s I knew that I wanted to leave my dad in their hands. They were so helpful and kind all the way through, as my dad passed away from COVID-19 it was a very stressful and disturbing time. They kept me informed all the way of what was going to be happening and the steps we had to take. Sam even came to us to sign paperwork so that we didn’t have to go out in lockdown. We were devastated at not being able to see dad at the funeral home or dress him in his own clothes but Sam handled it so well and explained the reasoning behind everything because of these unprecedented And challenging times. Sam arranged for us to see dad in a closed coffin in a lovely calm and serine room and spend as much time as we wanted there with him, it was such a comfort, Jane looked after us so well. Samantha-the celebrant was so lovely, we talked through everything that the family wanted on the day of the funeral, even up until the last minute. They looked after dad so well. They assured us that we could call at any time for anything, big or small, concerning the arrangements or even just for a chat, which was so comforting. They kept dads ashes for two months, until I felt able to go and collect them, Jane looked after us when we got there, so kind and helpful. A wonderful team of people who know what they are doing and offer support, kindness and empathy.

  • 4 Kate O'Connor 17th May 2020

    Everyone at Taylor's involved in organising my father-in-law's funeral was incredibly kind and considerate. They listened to all our wishes and concerns and brought it all together to give the simple yet elegant service he would have been proud of. Losing a loved one is extremely difficult but Sam and Samantha made it that little bit easier for everyone. I am very grateful for everything they did.

  • 5 Peter Lowe 15th May 2020

    Sam and his team are to be congratulated on the caring and unobtrusive way they conducted my wife’s funeral. Samantha his celebrant , delivered a wonderful  eulogy a fitting tribute to my wife and very emotional. With only 10 family members allowed to attend the web cast enabled many other family and friends to be a part of this very sad occasion. Thank you Sam and Samantha we won’t forget the help you have given us as a family.

    Everything was really nice and straight forward which is just what you need under the circumstances. On the occasion of the funeral everything went extremely well and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sam and his team.

  • 5 Tony Porter 20th Jan 2020

    Sam was extremely helpful and supportive throughout this difficult period. The service he provides as an independent funeral director is more personalised and empathetic than some of the larger concerns. He takes on board your individual requests and manages the whole process on your behalf.  I would wholeheartedly recommend Taylors to anyone .

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.
