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

As one of Bristol’s leading independent funeral directors, you can count on us to provide everything you need for the perfect send-off.

Our funeral directors near Brislington will never rush you into making any decisions. We’ll gladly talk you through the different options available, answer any questions you may have, and allow you to make the right choices for you, your family, and the deceased in your own time.


Funeral arrangements

When you’re mourning the loss of a loved one, making the arrangements for the funeral can add to the stress and sadness.

At Brunel Funeral Directors, we understand that you want to give the deceased the best send-off possible. That’s why our funeral directors close to Brislington will work alongside you and your family to ensure they get the funeral they deserve – for a price you can afford.

The first step is to establish what type of funeral service they would have wanted. Fortunately, we offer several services and packages, including:

  • The Brunel Cremation – an all-inclusive service including the conveyancing of the deceased into our care, preparation of the body for viewings, a hearse, pallbearers and a simple 20-minute service at either Canford, South Bristol or Westerleigh Crematorium.

Prices start from £2350.


  • Direct Cremation – a fuss-free cremation service with no minister, mourners or ceremony. On the day, only the funeral director and bearers are present, allowing you and your family to commemorate the life of your loved one at a later date, in the way the deceased would have wanted.

Prices start from £1250.


  • The Bespoke Service – a personalised funeral service that accommodates the exact wishes of the deceased, including their favourite flowers and music, as well as a bespoke hearse and coffin.

Prices can vary depending on the individual items you choose.


Other services

Most funeral directors in Brislington and the surrounding areas will take care of the deceased and offer guidance and support when it comes to organising the funeral. However, you can expect to receive a more personal service with us here at Brunel Funeral Directors.

On top of making the funeral arrangements, our team will be more than happy to prepare and care for the flowers until the day of the funeral. Whether it be a single posy, a shaped floral tribute, coffin spray, numbers or letters – just let us know what colours you’d like. You can also have flowers sent to our funeral home, and we’ll make sure they are transported to the service.

Though not something all funeral directors provide, we offer a full masonry service where you can choose from a selection of headstones and font styles. What’s more, if you need a headstone repairing, we can provide a no-obligation quote for the necessary work.

Our funeral directors near Brislington go above and beyond to help you give your loved one the best send-off. To help you remember the deceased after the funeral, we even supply a range of:

  • scatter tubes and caskets
  • fingerprint jewellery in gold, silver and rose gold
  • memory teddy bears that are made from the deceased’s clothing
  • glass pebbles
  • paperweights

These are all available to purchase at our funeral home.
