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. Exeter City Council is responsible for the management of three graveyards in and around the city: Exwick Cemetery, Higher Cemetery and Topsham Cemetery.

There is no single person or detail that makes an excellent funeral directors as it is clear that each and every point of contact and service provision must be excellent because if there were one part less good in any way then the whole impression would be affected. Every single part of our dealings with Peter Frank Turl during our mother's recent funeral was excellent; and that was the same for all of us involved including my father and all family and friends. That is no small task when emotions are so heightened and raw. It would be very easy to be extra sensitive to something not seemingly handled well and the whole team at Peter Frank Turl are expertly aware of the needs and considerations of the bereaved; no small task. As much as I very much hope that we are not in further need of their services for a good few more years, when the time comes we will contact Turl's without trepidation and with good comfort that we will again be in good hands through one of the hardest and most difficult times in life. Thank you Peter Frank Turl.
