Every day we see how fragile life is and we understand that entrusting your loved one to the care of someone else is a difficult decision.

Whether you are looking for a direct cremation, a traditional service or a more elaborate personalised service we can advise you through the whole process from the funeral to a lasting memorial and will take care of all the arrangements for you.

We are a family-owned and family-run business in our 5th generation and have been in business for over 125 years.

We can be contacted by telephone 24 hours a day.

We have no sales targets to meet and we are here to help you arrange a funeral. As a small local company and part of the community ourselves, we try to support other local businesses and find that we can provide a better service for doing so.

What clients are saying

From the very first phone call to start the process of arranging my dad’s funeral through to collecting his ashes, The staff at G Collins and Sons were kind, patient and professional.

At each stage they took the time to listen to what we wanted, never rushing us to make decisions about the details.

Very professional service from the first moment. Kind, courteous and we were made to feel at ease everything.

I can’t recommend them enough. From our first contact with them, they acted in a very professional and compassionate manner. All the staff are marvellous and my husband’s funeral was beautiful. I couldn’t have asked for more.
