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.
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.
