Exeter is a medieval cathedral city famed for its beautiful architecture and religious and cultural importance. It is the county town of Devon, and home of Devon County Council. The city has a population of approximately 125,000 people, served by 11 funeral directors.

Compared to other English cities, Exeter has a higher proportion of Christian residents, though around four per cent of residents are of Asian heritage. Exeter also has a significant Chinese population, thanks in part to its renowned and respected university.

Check with your chosen funeral director to ensure they can meet any requirements you have.

The Exeter and Devon Crematorium, situated off Topsham Road, is independently run, while East Devon Crematorium is situated between Exeter and Honiton and is privately run.

My sisters and I were very pleased with the service we received from you. Michaela was very kind and attentive and the funeral itself was exactly as we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble with particular attention paid to our choice of music. Thank you to all concerned and we would highly recommend your service to anyone suffering a bereavement.

Sillifants provided an excellent service for my uncle's funeral. It is a family run firm and apart from finding them very helpful and supportive throughout the arrangements, the individual family members went of their way to ensure it all went smoothly by always being available whenever I contacted them and giving good advice.  I would highly recommend them.

Very respectful of our wishes and compassionate. Very professional on the day of the funeral and would not use anyone else.
