COVID-19 Information

Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic

This is a very concerning time for everyone right now. We want to reassure you that we are continuing to take the greatest care of our families and arrange funerals in the best possible way. We are keeping up to date with the latest government guidance on funerals and will keep our families informed of any changes.

If someone has passed away at home.

Please contact us at any time, we still cover a 24hr service. We will ask you for the normal information, but we will now also include asking if you know if the deceased or anyone in the property has tested positive for coronavirus. When we arrive, our men will be wearing PPE as a standard precaution, in the event that someone could be asymptomatic. We ask that you follow social distancing whilst our staff are with you.

Arranging the funeral

Where possible we are trying to keep you safe as well as our staff. We will arrange funerals over the phone wherever possible, to minimise contact. Once done we will send the funeral director to your home to hand you the paperwork that has been completed, it will be clearly labelled for you to sign. It is nice for you to meet the funeral director so you know who will be looking after you on the day of the funeral.

If you come to the funeral home to sign the paperwork then you will be asked to wear a mask and sanitise your hands.

All paperwork will be laid out ready for you visit and clearly marked for signing.

  • There are gloves if you wish, masks and automatic hand sanitiser are available in reception.
  • No more than 2 clients may visit the home at any time.
  • We regularly clean all surfaces in the funeral home and use a sanitising fogging machine to sanitise the air.


During this lockdown we are not offering limousines on funerals. We will bring the hearse to an address should family want to follow to the crematorium.
If the deceased has been tested positive for COVID-19 then due to the airborne nature of the virus we cannot permit visiting in the chapel.
We also cannot take fingerprints for jewellery but you do have the option of ashes into glass keepsakes.

We apologise for any additional stress this may cause but we have a duty of care to you our client and also to the health and safety of our staff.

What we do

Losing someone you love is never easy – but seeking advice and support from funeral directors can be comforting at such a difficult and emotional time.

Whilst there are many funeral directors in Bath, few offer more compassion and transparency than us. And we are very proud to be able to offer our bereaved families a personal service of care and excellence – working hard to keep our prices low and standards high. We’ll also care for your loved one at our funeral home until the day of the funeral.


Funeral services and packages

Here at Brunel Funeral Directors, we like to do things differently to other funeral directors in Bath.

Our caring and compassionate team is on hand 24/7 to fully support you through the process of arranging the funeral. We will give you the time you need to make the choices that are right for you and the rest of your family.

We offer a variety of funeral packages, including:

  • Direct Cremation – a simple cremation with no one attending, no minister or service – starting from £1250 (inclusive of disbursements). Ideal for those who want to keep things simple for their family when they die, as the bereaved don’t have to make any tough decisions about the coffin, flower arrangements, transport and venues.


  • The Brunel Cremation – our most popular package, delivered with complete compassion and care. It includes the conveyancing of the deceased into our funeral home, preparation of the body for the service and a simple coffin. We’ll also organise the documents and doctor and minister fees, as well as the hearse, limousine, directors and bearers (if required).

Our Brunel Cremation service includes a 20-minute service at either Canford, South Bristol or Westerleigh Crematorium. However, if you would prefer to use Haycombe Crematorium, then this is another option we can offer.


  • The Bespoke Service – this is our favourite option as it allows you to create a personal commemoration to celebrate the life of the person who has died. This funeral package gives you the choice to tailor the service to suit both yours and the deceased’s wishes with specialist hearses, coffins, flower arrangements, music, etc.

If you can’t decide which funeral service to choose, don’t worry. Our team can talk you through the options available, either at our funeral home, your home or over the telephone. It’s entirely up to you.


Additional funeral services

Most funeral directors in Bath will help you to make the funeral arrangements. However, at Brunel Funeral Directors, we not only assist you in deciding between a crematorium and burial, but we also provide a variety of other services, ensuring that every funeral is as unique as your loved one and caters to their exact wishes.

Ranging from simple bouquets to large, bespoke letters and numbers, we offer all kinds of floral tributes and can care for them at our funeral home until the day of the funeral.

Memorabilia, such as jewellery and keepsakes, is also available to purchase, as well as wooden, stone, granite, paper and glass caskets and scatter tubes.

Something else our funeral directors near Bath can help with is masonry. We deal with all types of monumental masonry requirements, so if you have any special requests regarding the gravestone or memorial plaque, please get in touch.


Funeral plans

Taking out a funeral plan can help to secure your family’s future – meaning that, when the time comes, they needn’t worry about the financial and emotional pressure of arranging your funeral.

At first glance, you might not know which funeral plan is right for you. It’s for this reason that many people seek advice from funeral directors in Bath (or close by).

At Brunel Funeral Directors, we provide pre-paid funeral plans from Golden Leaves and will listen carefully to your requirements before recommending a plan that suits your needs and wishes best. You can then either pay for it upfront or in monthly instalments. It’s entirely your choice.
