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

Welcome to Brunel

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 to open Brunel Independent Funeral Directors.

We are different to many other funeral providers. 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 also offer support to our families for as long as is needed after the funeral has taken place. We have a small and 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.

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 end 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.
