About Us

Odette Funeral Director is an independent funeral service in Calne, Wiltshire. Odette first started out working for another well known funeral director but when that was sold to a big corporate in 2014, Odette decided to venture out on her own, to offer a personal, respectful service to Calne and the surrounding community.

Odette has a wealth of experience and knowledge having been in funeral service for over 20 years. She passed the Diploma in Funeral Directing in 2007, and has previously worked as a Pathology Technician, giving her a fantastic understanding of the coroner system in Wiltshire.

Odette Funeral Director is a true family business. Odette’s daughter, Sara, is a Funeral Arranger and deals with all administration. Sara has been in the family business since 2016 and she has two children herself. Odette‘s son Tom started in the family business once he left school in 2017, and helps with administration and with all other aspects of organizing a funeral. Tom is looking forward to the future and is starting his training to be a Funeral Conductor.

Odette Funeral Director is very proud of the standard of service they provide to the people of Calne, offering advice and guidance on what would be a fitting and lasting tribute to a loved one, whether that be a new headstone or cremation tablet, a refurbishment of a stone or if you just require a further inscription.

Odette Funeral Director’s funeral home in Calne provides a 24 hours a day 7 days a week service. The modern funeral home can be used to arrange every aspect of the funeral, or you can arrange for home visits.

    Odette, Sara and Tom could not have been kinder or more supporting of us as a family during what was a very difficult time. They carefully and with the utmost respect helped us through the process of arranging a funeral. I think this is testament to the fact that Odette's is a family run business. They provided a wonderful service and I would not hesitate to recommend them.

  • 5 Maureen Clarke 11th Sep 2021

    What a wonderful person Odette is…from the first meeting we all felt very relaxed and confident that we could leave all the arrangements in her hands without any worries.  Her ‘staff’ comprising of her son and daughter are a credit to her.  The day of the funeral they were all so very smart even though the temperature was in the high twenties.  I would like to say thank you to them all for making a very sad occasion a lovely memory of my mum. I would highly recommend Odette and her team.

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.
