Guide to Funeral Directors in Chelmsford

Chelmsford is the county town of Essex; it is located approximately 30 miles east of London which makes it prime commuter belt, and it has recently been promoted to the status of city. About 120,000 people live in the urban area of Chelmsford, with 168,000 in the larger conurbation.

There are currently 12 funerals directors in Chelmsford, with a further choice of around 18 located throughout the wider area, looking to provide a sympathetic service for bereaved clients. Many of these companies are long established, family run funeral homes with a great deal of experience.

The population is largely Christian according to the latest census figures and there are approximately 30 churches within five mile radius of the centre. The city and surrounding area, however, includes a high number of people who are non-religious, and so it may be comparatively easy to find funerals directors in Chelmsford who have had experience conducting secular funeral services.

Chelmsford city council runs the integrated Chelmsford crematorium and cemetery on Writtle Road. It is the only active cemetery within the boundaries of the city, although there are four others within ten miles, in such places as Braintree and Maldon.

Smooth support at every event Took time to listen to what was being asked, nothing appeared to be to much trouble. Very supportive at at a distressing time. Would have been s 5 star rating, but I was not happy with the transfer from coming out of the hearse and up onto the shoulders, 1 of the members of staff almost lost his footing and went flying backwards, while trying to ensure that my husband remained on shoulders and on his coffin. Heart was in my mouth and myself and family members, thought that he was going to be dropped. Rest of service went very well. Sue Last.
