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.

Helpful, informative, sympathetic, professional, dignified. These are words which made a terrible situation easier to cope with. Hilliers were all of the above and I would highly recommend their service.

Carole Pugh at Hillier was so helpful, understanding, and caring. She understood that as my husband passed away at 53 unexpectedly we were all in shock and ensured we were looked after and didn't rush us to make choices. At no time did we feel like we were being forced to make choices, there was no hard selling we were left time to make choices Carole arranged for an obituary to be placed on Funeralzone so we could put links onto Facebook so that I could let his friends know and so that they could donate (if they wanted) to two of my husbands favorite charities, as well as putting it in the paper. Carole recommended Hugh Milsom as the celebrant - Hugh was kind, and caring and listened to us and told my husbands story beautifully, without pretending he knew him On the day Chris called me to introduce himself and let me know he would be looking after us on the day - which he did really well. I was impressed with the care and kindness and professionalism that everyone at Hillier showed during a really difficult time for me and the family. I was so impressed I totally recommend Hillier as they care about you
