Guide to Funeral Directors in Swindon

Swindon, Wiltshire, was originally a small market town, which flourished during the industrial revolution. Today the population stands at 185,000, with over 209,000 people in total living in the wider borough.

There are approximately 12 funeral directors in Swindon and the surrounding area, five of which are within a five mile radius of the town centre.

Recent census results show that the population comprises those of many religious faiths, with over half of residents identify as Christian. This means that funeral directors are likely to have experience planning funeral services for various cultural and religious beliefs. However, with nearly a third professing no religion, funeral directors in Swindon will also have experience in arranging Humanist or secular funeral services.

Swindon Borough Council runs the local Kingsdown Crematorium, which is located to the north of the town on Kingsdown Road. The crematorium and cemetery grounds are open throughout the year at varying times.

Hillier Funeral Services have provided an excellent service for my dad’s funeral - very kind and caring and nothing has been too much trouble for them.  They’ve made the process very easy to deal with at a time when your life has been turned upside down and you have so much to think about.  On the day of the funeral Mike was very supportive and looked after us very well letting us know what would happen and giving off an air of dignified calm. A local independent who truly cares about the service they provide from collection of the deceased to taking them to their final resting place. Thank you.

My family would like to thank John Pearce and all those from Pearce Funeral Services for their professionalism in dealing with my late Father's funeral on the 15/2/2019. John Pearce was always available to discuss any concerns which was very much appreciated.
