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.

I wish to personally thank Pearce Funeral Directors, their team and caring staff who provided the most exceptional service for my auntie with the utmost quality and care, supporting me tremendously throughout. They truly are a wonderful organisation and independent establishment, who provided me with the highest level of support in the most compassionate way possible. Everything they coordinated was taken care of beautifully and all our requirements met in the most kindest way possible. I can honestly share that they were the very best organisation I could have possibly have asked for in the hardest of circumstances. The coordination of each and every single detail from the start to finish was managed perfectly in the smoothest way imaginable. Even with their calmest handling of a extremely delicate situation, they were so unbelievably kind and thoughtful. I send my special heartfelt thanks and utter gratitude to you all for everything that you did for me and my family to make our deeply sad time one that was uplifting, with complete professionalism. You over and above touched my heart. I genuinely can not thank you enough. You have been incredible. My vey best and sincerest regards, Claire

The service provided by John and his team was exceptional. They all went out of their way to help us through a difficult time and I could not recommend them highly enough. 5 stars is not enough!

Shirley Burnham 2021-03-29 07:00:14

Without exception, everyone I spoke to at Pearce Funeral Services took the time to listen, gave sensible answers to my queries and took all the anxiety out of arranging the event. The loss of Tony had been a body blow and complications surrounding the Covid-19 lockdown had only exacerbated my anxiety. It was therefore so refreshing to discover that the top man, John Pearce, and his team rose to the occasion, marshalled their many talents and, on the day itself, demonstrated that Tony's diminutive funeral could be both meaningful and very beautiful. I'd like to thank them
