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.

The whole family are really grateful to Paul and his team for creating the memorable event that we had all hoped for. We had not planned a traditional service and Paul went out of his way to accommodate all of our wishes. We actually had feedback from friends and family that it was the best funeral they had ever attended. We will be forever grateful to Secure Haven for making this possible.

The pasting of my mum has been a very difficult and stressful time but from the start of our experience with the coop everyone has been fantastic and kind and showed great compassion.  Jane in particular made a very sad time easier to bare. Thank you

All requested arrangements were met. Jane Millbank ensured that nothing was overlooked. On the day, everything went smoothly and to time. The FD for the day, Craig(?), was excellent and the rest of the staff performed their services well. This is the second funeral that Broomfield has arranged under my direction, and the second time that they have provided an excellent service for me.
