Guide to Funeral Directors in Exeter

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. This means that some funeral directors may have experience catering to a range of cultural traditions and religions. 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.

We can thoroughly recommend M. Sillifant and Sons. Nothing was too much trouble for Martin and Sarah - they arranged the whole day so well and were very kind and sympathetic when we went to see Mum. A lovely family business who take care of the arrangements so well. We used them for my Dad 6 years ago - big thank you from us all.
