    Went to several other funeral directors in Swindon. None gave such heartfelt care or attention to detail as Pearce Funeral Services. Having gone through the whole process now, I can confirm that no request is too small, or detail too fine. I could not recommend them highly enough!

  • 5 Emma Dean 15th May 2018

    John and Dave couldn’t be faulted.  The company as a whole is wonderful, they’re supportive, allow you space when you need it and explain everything to the fullest.   We wouldn’t of wanted our daughter to of been looked after at this horrible time by anyone else.  The funeral was breathtakingly perfect, everything was as we wanted and more.  We can’t thank you enough for everything! 

  • 5 Jason Marrinan 10th May 2018

    John and his team provided an impeccable and compassionate service at such a difficult time for our family.  They dealt with every single aspect from start to finish, and with complete care and respect. Nothing was ever any trouble. We are so grateful to them for all of their support and assistance. They were efficient, yet patient and maintained professionalism with sensitivity at all times.  So many friends and family passed comments as to how amazing they were, and we couldn’t agree more!  We truly cannot thank or recommend Pearce’s Funeral Director’s enough for their supportive, sensitive and professional approach.

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.

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.

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.
