Funeral Directors Bishopsworth

When a loved one dies, seeking advice and support from funeral directors in Bishopsworth (or nearby) can be very comforting. And Brunel Funeral Directors is here to offer compassion and support every step of the way.

On the edge of Westbury on Trym – just a short 15-minute drive from Bishopsworth – you’ll find our warm and welcoming funeral home. It’s here that our team has been supporting bereaved families in the local community for more than 45 years and providing everything you need to give your loved one the best send-off.


To find out more about the services funeral directors near Bishopsworth provide, give us a call on 0117 374 2002.

What we do

All funeral directors in Bishopsworth should arrange care for the deceased, offer guidance and support to the family, help with the funeral arrangements and provide professional advice – easing the burden at this distressing time.

However, as independent funeral directors, we like to do things a little different at Brunel Funeral Directors.

We understand there is no right or wrong way to grieve. Some people find comfort in talking and sharing fond memories about the deceased with funeral directors in Bishopsworth, whilst others prefer to put on a brave face and let their emotions out behind closed doors, usually after the funeral.

That’s why, at Brunel Funeral Directors, we never rush our families and will give you all the time you need to make the right decisions for you and your loved one. Our team is here to offer bereavement support for as long as you need, even after the funeral has taken place.

Funeral arrangements

Organising a funeral for someone you love can be stressful. There is a lot to consider to ensure you give them the send-off they deserve – like the type of funeral service, the hymns or music, readings, flowers and masonry. And it’s for this reason that many people seek assistance from funeral directors in Bishopsworth or close by, like us.

We offer several funeral services and packages and work hard to keep our prices low and standards high. One of our most popular funeral packages is the Brunel Cremation. This is all-inclusive of the conveyancing of the deceased from the place of death to our comfortable funeral home, a basic coffin, hearse and a 20-minute service at one of the local crematoriums (i.e. Canford, South Bristol or Westerleigh), as well as doctors and ministers’ fees.

We also provide a Direct Cremation – a simple, dignified service with no attendees, minister or ceremony, just the funeral director and bearers. This type of service is perfect if the descendant wanted a no-fuss send-off.

Alternatively, the Bespoke Service is a traditional funeral service that reflects the wishes of both you and the deceased. We give you the choice of specialist hearses, coffins, floral tributes, music, etc. Although it tends to be the most expensive package, it enables you to personalise the ceremony and celebrate the life of your loved one.

Other funeral services

Our funeral directors near Bishopsworth don’t just help with the funeral service. We can also take care of the flower arrangements – whether it be coffin sprays, heart tributes, letters, numbers or wreaths – giving you one less thing to worry about.

As well as this, we have a large selection of scatter tubes and caskets available both online and at our funeral home, so if you don’t see something suitable, please get in touch.

At Brunel Funeral Directors, we provide a full masonry service – offering many types of marble, stone and granite headstones and an assortment of font styles. Memory teddy’s that are made from items of clothing, fingerprint jewellery in silver, gold or rose gold, and glass pebbles and paperweights are also available.

Funeral plans

We often assist families with funeral arrangements and have also helped people to plan their own funeral. So, if you’re thinking ahead and want to take out a funeral plan, you’re in capable hands with us.

Though it’s not something all funeral directors in Bishopsworth offer, we provide pre-paid funeral plans from Golden Leaves. Not only do these allow you to plan and pay for the funeral you want (not what someone thinks you might have wanted!), but they can also save your relatives the heartache and expense once you’ve passed.

With our funeral plans, you have the choice to pay in one lump sum or monthly instalments, spreading the cost over a fixed term. And the best bit is, our pre-paid plans cover the cost of the service, regardless of inflation.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How much does a funeral cost?

    The average cost of a funeral in the UK is around £4,000, but this can vary depending on:

    • your location
    • the type of service you choose (i.e. burial or cremation)
    • the type of coffin
    • transport on the day of the service
    • additional services (e.g. floral tributes, scatter tubes and caskets, memorabilia, masonry, etc.)
    • funeral director fees

    As independent funeral directors in Bristol, we offer a wide range of funeral services for bereaving families both in the city centre and on the outskirts, including areas such as Bishopsworth.

    We offer an all-inclusive cremation service for £1995 and a traditional funeral service that can be tailored to suit you and the deceased’s wishes from £2919.

    We also provide a direct cremation that allows you to bid farewell to your loved one in a fuss-free, dignified way. Priced at £1150, this is the cheapest option we provide.

    For more information about the services our funeral directors near Bishopsworth provide and our prices, get in touch with us today on 0117 374 2002.

    How can funeral costs be reduced?

    Of course you want to give your loved one the best send-off, but that shouldn’t mean getting yourself into debt!

    You can arrange a funeral that’s meaningful and dignified without breaking the bank – you just need to shop around and find funeral directors that provide suitable options for your budget.

    Here at Brunel Funeral Directors, all of our funeral packages include a simple coffin and transport on the day of the service. Whilst it’s possible to upgrade to a specialist coffin and hearse, doing so will increase the overall cost of the funeral.

    Some funeral directors in Bishopsworth and the surrounding areas provide pallbearers – including us. However, you may prefer to ask family and friends to carry the coffin to help keep your costs down.

    Alternatively, you could consider arranging a direct cremation. This is a fuss-free cremation without a ceremony. Whilst no mourners are present (just the funeral director and pallbearers), the ashes will be returned to you after the service and you can commemorate the life of your loved one at a later date, in whatever way you see fit.

    Our funeral directors near Bishopsworth can also help you to spread the cost of a funeral with our funeral finance. Simply use the sliders to input the overall price of the funeral and how you’d like to pay for it (i.e. instalments over 12, 24, 36, 48 or 60 months).

    Please note, you will be charged interest when you pay in monthly instalments.

    How do I reach your funeral home from Bishopsworth?

    Our warm and welcoming funeral home on the edge of Westbury-on-Trym is easily accessible from Bishopsworth by car.

    Although you can travel via the A4, A4018 or A4176, we recommend putting BS10 6PZ (Concorde Drive) in your sat-nav. Depending on the traffic and time of day, it will take 20-25 minutes for you to reach us.

    If you don’t have access to a car, don’t panic – you can get to our funeral home via public transport in less than 1 hour 30 minutes.

    You can either hop on the number 76 bus (towards Henbury) from Perrycroft Road bus stop and exit at Badocks Wood School.

    From here, it’s approximately a 7-minute walk to Concorde Drive.

    Or you can take the number 75 bus (heading towards Cribbs Causeway) from either St Peter’s Church or Vicarage Road to The Centre.

    Then jump on the number 1 bus to Cribbs Causeway and get off at Falcondale Walk. Again, you’ll need to walk to the destination, but it shouldn’t take much more than 10 minutes.

    If you’d like to discuss the funeral arrangements for your loved one with our funeral directors in Bishopsworth over a nice cup of tea, don’t hesitate to give us a call on 0117 374 2002.
