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.

    Sam and the team were absolutely amazing and carried out a wonderful service for our family, following our father's death. He was a member of the Royal British Legion and Sam arranged for the RBL Committee to carry out a Legion funeral, which is a very professional and respectful occasion. My brother and I felt extremely well looked after and would not hesitate to recommend Taylor's Independent Family Funeral Directors for anyone who has the unfortunate need to arrange a funeral in the Knowle and Dorridge area. Thank you again Sam, we appreciate everything you did for us. Kind regards, Alison and Adam.

  • 5 Faith Mitchell 2nd Mar 2019

    Our family have recently received an excellent service from Taylor’s.  It had been our intention to use another service as we had used them previously however they were not able to accommodate the date and time we had planned.  So we sourced Taylor’s as a local funeral directors who were able to accommodate us, they were very professional and unobtrusive on the day and supported both the service and burial.  I would not hesitate to recommend them to others or use them again.

  • 5 Sara Rowell 11th Nov 2018

    The service we received from the caring, friendly team at Taylor’s was first class, from the moment we first walked in the door the afternoon our mother died. Nothing was too much trouble and the caring, respectful attention to detail and communication with us was excellent.  The funeral was held in Surrey but this was not a problem for Taylor’s, who ensured everything ran smoothly and exactly as planned. I can highly recommend Taylor’s. 

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.

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.
