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. The council run and maintain two other cemeteries: Withworth Road cemetery is to the north and Radnor Street Cemetery is closer to the centre; however neither of these cemeteries have further space available other than those graves which have already been purchased.

From start to finish the funeral arrangements were handled very sympathetically by Tamara, she took us through all the stages of the funeral very professionally.These occasions are not easy for anyone but if dealt with, with empathy this helps considerably. Our visit to the Chapel of Rest was a very moving experience but again handled with great respect. On the day of the funeral the staff were on time and were respectful to us. Also a special Thank You to Hugh Milsom who helped plan the service to suit our expectations, and presided over the funeral service. Again a very professional presentation Thank you to" all" who were involved at this sad time. MJC.

Professionally and sympathetically arranged from beginning to end. We were pleased to be given so much help and understanding through a difficult time. Special thanks to Lyn before the funeral day and to Mike who organised us so well on the day.
