Guide to Funeral Directors in Swindon

Swindon, Wiltshire, was originally a small market town, which flourished during the industrial revolution. Today the population stands at 185,000, with over 209,000 people in total living in the wider borough.

There are approximately 12 funeral directors in Swindon and the surrounding area, five of which are within a five mile radius of the town centre.

Recent census results show that the population comprises those of many religious faiths, with over half of residents identify as Christian. This means that funeral directors are likely to have experience planning funeral services for various cultural and religious beliefs. However, with nearly a third professing no religion, funeral directors in Swindon will also have experience in arranging Humanist or secular funeral services.

Swindon Borough Council runs the local Kingsdown Crematorium, which is located to the north of the town on Kingsdown Road. The crematorium and cemetery grounds are open throughout the year at varying times. The council run and maintain two other cemeteries: Withworth Road cemetery is to the north and Radnor Street Cemetery is closer to the centre; however neither of these cemeteries have further space available other than those graves which have already been purchased.

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse.

John Pearce and his team are simply ourstanding, they have helped me on more than one occasion, from the first phone call through to the funeral, and after. 1st class without exception.

Nothing was too much trouble They were amazing and made everything easy at such a difficult time! From our first meeting when John came to collect Will from our home in the middle of the night we knew we would be in safe hands! There was never any pressure put on us to make a decision - it was all at our own pace! Even payment is not required until after the funeral and even then you have a few weeks in which to pay it which takes the pressure off at such an emotionally charged time! On the day of the funeral John literally walked us through every part , making the send off special in every way I cannot recommend Pearce Funeral Services enough !!! They really are a family business ! and a big part of ours now !
