I would really highly recommend these guys, went above and beyond for me. My mothers funeral was lovely thanks to these guys. Nothing was too much trouble. And a very personal service. I cannot praise or thank them enough for all they did, made our mums funeral such a joy to attend and everyone thought it was beautiful. Thank you Chris and Louise, you are both truly amazing people and I feel like I have 2 new friends.
Without a doubt a fantastic, warming and welcoming funeral directors. Go above and beyond. The care they gave my mum, was lovely. I couldn’t thank them enough. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
Very nice people! Did my mother proud, I would recommend Brunel to family and friends, NO QUESTION…..
Louise and Chris are amazing, thoughtful and have supported me in the recent loss of my mum. I would not hesitate to recommend their services in a difficult time. Being totally independent they offer a funeral that you can make special for your loved one. Having used a funeral chain before I would never go anywhere else again. Thank you both for making a difficult time a lot easier and memorable for all the right reasons.
In the current and uncertain and unusual times Brunel have been compassionate, kind, flexible and unwaveringly helpful at every step. We are so gratgeful for the help and advice at every step and making the day as good as we could have possibly hoped for.MB - Bristol

Just wanted to say what a wonderful service I got from Louise and the team at Brunel. My mother has passed away and Louise especially was fantastic helping to sort all the details out. The way she dealt with me at this difficult time has been much appreciated. Highly recommended.SG - Bristol

Here To Help You Through This

COVID-19 Information

Since the outbreak of Covid-19 we have been committed to looking after our families to the best of our ability.

We are working closely with the  government and the funeral sector to make sure we provide you with the best possible service under the current restrictions, whilst providing necessary protection to both you, your family and our staff.

The current message from the Government is that funerals should continue as far as possible, for now, but take into account all of the guidelines issued for minimising the risk of transmission. This includes the need to protect at-risk groups, to avoid large gatherings of people, for good hand hygiene and the avoiding of unnecessary physical contact.

We are taking steps to ensure all initial contact with the family (e.g. the arrangement meeting) is conducted remotely, for example, by telephone or email. So please do not feel offended if we ask to conduct the arrangements remotely as the current Government-advise is for everybody to stay at home. If you are calling us following the death of a loved one at home, you must tell us if the person has died of the Covid-19 Coronavirus or if you are showing symptoms of it. Again, please do not be offended by this, we may also ask you if this is the case; we need to ensure as far as possible the safety of you and our staff at all times. If you need to contact us about arranging a funeral and are already affected by the Covid-19 virus, rest assured, we will do our utmost to help you facilitate the funeral arrangement.

Independent Funeral Directors Bristol

Chris Wilshire and Louise Constable decided, after many years of working in the funeral industry and having gained a huge amount of knowledge and experience, to pull their resources together and open Brunel Independent Funeral Directors.

Today, we have a small – very carefully selected – dedicated team that work with us, who are just as passionate in providing you with the service you are looking for and your loved one deserves. Our tranquil funeral home – on the edge of Westbury on Trym, Bristol – is bright and welcoming. It’s here that the deceased will be taken to from the hospital or their place of death.  You’re welcome to come and visit them, as often as you like, to discuss the arrangements of the funeral with our team.

As independent funeral directors, we like to do things differently to other funeral providers, here at Brunel Funeral Directors. We refuse to rush our families – giving you all the time you need to make the right decision for you and your loved one – providing a very personal and individual experience and making sure that you are aware of all the choices and options available to you.

We understand that planning a funeral is difficult – especially at what is an already emotionally charged time.  Not everyone has experience with making funeral arrangements and for most, it’ll be the first time.  We will sit with you and listen to your requests, ideas and thoughts.  We’ll be able to work with you and arrange the perfect funeral for your loved one.  Whether it be a traditional service or a real celebration of someone’s life.  We can help make it an occasion to remember for the right reasons.

As you’d expect from independent funeral directors, we are here to help you organise the perfect ceremony, but can also help with floral arrangements, masonry, memorabilia, funeral plans, and more.

One thing that makes us stand out from other funeral directors in Bristol is that we are prepared to go the extra mile and do everything we can to support the bereaved during this difficult time. We offer support to our families for as long as it’s needed after the funeral has taken place – helping them to cope with the loss of a loved one, and to grieve properly, by offering professionalism, care and compassion to their needs.

So, if you’re looking for funeral directors in Bristol, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

    Worried About The Cost?
    Check our Finance assistance

    We fully understand the financial strain a bereavement can cause for some families, and here at Brunel Funeral Directors we will do our very best to accommodate and help you through this. If you don’t have the funds immediately to pay then we can offer finance through funeral safe. You can raise funds from £500 – £7500 over a period of 12 – 48 months. You can also repay the money before the term ends if you choose to do so. We have added a calculator so that you are able to choose the loan amount and the loan period for you to be able to see the monthly repayments. Funeral Safe is a transparent operator they are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and governed by an independent supervisory board, so you are in good hands.

    We also work closely with an independent Solicitors, so again if you don’t have liquid funds available, but there is an estate to be sold, an alternative would be to use our solicitors, they will act on your behalf dealing with the probate of the estate. What they will kindly do is pay your funeral account, and finalise the estate. Once everything is completed they will deduct their fee for probate along with the funeral bill and the rest of the estate will of course be returned to you. Please ask for more details.

    *Applications will be submitted to either the finance house or the solicitor and their decision to proceed is final.
