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.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What type of funeral can I choose?

    Every funeral is unique and should celebrate the deceased’s personality and character.

    The first thing to consider is whether to opt for a cremation or burial – this is a personal preference and there is no right or wrong choice.

    If cost is an issue, or you want something particularly private, a direct cremation may be the best option. A direct cremation takes place with no funeral service, with only the funeral staff present. A popular choice is to have a direct cremation, followed by a celebration of life at a later date, whether this be a couple of days or even a year later.

    The more traditional option is a burial or cremation, giving mourners the chance to attend the funeral service to say their goodbyes in a formal setting. Opting for a traditional funeral often incurs additional fees such as flower arrangements, minister fees and doctor fees.

    If you’re unsure what type of funeral your loved one would have opted for or would like to speak to an expert about your options, get in touch with our team by calling 0117 374 2002.

    Should I have a pre-paid funeral plan?

    Taking out a pre-paid funeral plan is an entirely personal choice, but there are benefits that mean it’s worth considering.

    Some people like to think ahead and plan their own funeral. Opting for a pre-paid funeral plan allows you to do so, ensuring special requests are accommodated, right down to a specific song or poem.

    One of the biggest advantages of a pre-paid funeral plan is that, not only does it reduce the additional emotional burden on your family during their bereavement, but it also prevents the financial burden.

    Funerals can be costly. Taking out a funeral plan can spread the cost over a longer period if you can’t afford to pay all at once.

    You can rest assured your money is being held inside a secure trust until needed. Plus, as funeral plans are exempt from inheritance tax, this could prevent cash flow problems within your family during the process.

    At Brunel Funeral Directors near Brislington, we offer pre-paid funeral plans from Golden Leaves. You can choose to pay in one lump sum or in monthly instalments – whichever suits you best.

    How can I remember my loved one?

    Everyone remembers their loved one in their own way. Some opt to hold annual gatherings to celebrate their life, others opt for sentimental items.

    A great way to remember your loved one is to create a memory book. You could ask people to write their fond memories onto a piece of card and take copies of their favourite photos of your loved one. This will give you something physical to look back on, allowing you to remember your loved one’s smiley face and happy memories.

    Another option is a memorabilia item, a fingerprint necklace for example. This allows you to carry a piece of your loved one with you everywhere you go.

    A great option, especially for younger children, is a memory teddy. These can be made using your loved one’s clothing. So, if they had a favourite t-shirt or there’s a specific item of clothing you associate with them, you can get this preserved in the form of a teddy bear.

    At Brunel Funeral Directors, we supply a specially curated range of memorabilia items. If you’d like to find out more, speak to our friendly team by calling 0117 374 2002.

    How do I choose a funeral director in Brislington?

    Choosing the right funeral director is important. Your funeral director should support you throughout the whole process and ensure you make the right decisions for your loved one.

    Make sure to do your research as not all funeral directors offer the same service, and some may not be able to accommodate your requests.

    Before you approach any funeral directors, create a list of questions for them.

    • Where can the funeral be held?
    • What type of funerals do they offer?
    • Can they provide the floral arrangements?
    • Do they offer a full masonry service?

    You’ll want to choose someone that can answer these questions honestly.

    Here at Brunel Funeral Directors, we will support you through the entire process.

    You know your loved one best, we’re just here to guide you along the way, ensuring everything is organised and your loved one is given the most perfect send off, reflective of their own character.
