What we do

At Brunel Funeral Directors, we’re on hand to offer unwavering support at such an emotional time.

From booking the date and time of the ceremony to organising the transport and flowers on the day of the service, we can take care of as much (or as little) as you like.

Whether you want to get involved with the planning process or you’d rather take a step back, our funeral directors close to Clifton will work closely with you and your family to ensure your loved one gets the funeral they deserve.

We will never rush you into making a decision. Take as long as you need.


Funeral arrangements

Organising a funeral can add to the stress and sadness that you’re already feeling. However, our caring and compassionate team can help you to create a service that reflects the wishes of the deceased – whether it be a large ceremony with a celebration afterwards or an intimate service with few or no attendees.

We offer a number of funeral packages near Clifton, including:

The Brunel Funeral is an all-inclusive cremation service which includes the conveyancing of the deceased into our care, preparation of the body for viewings, the provision of a hearse, and a simple coffin. It also includes a short service in which you can share fond memories, read poems, sing songs and pay your respects before the cremation.


Direct cremation is a simple yet dignified cremation service. With no formal service and mourners present, it’s perfect for those who wanted a fuss-free send-off. Although there’ll be no tough decisions to make, such as choosing a coffin, flowers and music, you can trust that we will take care of your loved one right up to the day of the cremation, when they’ll be in the hands of the cremation team.


Our bespoke funeral services are completely personalised, meaning we’ll tailor them to suit the needs of your family while reflecting the life of your loved one. You can choose every aspect – from the coffin to the floral arrangements, music choices and even the dress code.


Other services

We go above and beyond for our bereaved families at Brunel Funeral Directors, helping to make the process as simple and stress-free as possible.

Whether you’d like colourful sprays, letters or a bouquet of your loved one’s favourite flowers to adorn the coffin, we’re more than happy to organise the floral arrangements on your behalf. What’s more, you can have flowers sent to our funeral home and we’ll care for them until the day of the funeral – giving you one less thing to worry about.

To help keep your loved one’s memory alive, our funeral directors near Clifton can provide a memory teddy that’s made from their favourite piece of clothing or memory jewellery in silver, gold and rose gold.

We also provide a full masonry service, offering a permanent symbol of remembrance. You can choose every detail from the headstone to the beautiful inscription and font.


Funeral plans

Funerals can be expensive, so taking out a funeral plan is a sensible decision.

Not only will it allow you to plan ahead and spread the cost of your funeral, but it’ll also save your family the financial burden when the time comes.

With a funeral plan, you can choose what you want on the day of your funeral. Your loved ones won’t have to make any difficult decisions and you’ll be given the perfect send-off.

At Brunel Funeral Directors, we provide pre-paid funeral plans from Golden Leaves and are confident you’ll find one that suits your wishes. There are several ways in which you can pay for your funeral plan, including one upfront payment and monthly instalments. Either way, you can rest assured that the money for your funeral will be held securely until you’ve passed away.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is a cremation service cheaper than a burial?

    Yes – a cremation service is generally cheaper than a traditional burial, but that’s not to say that your loved one won’t receive a dignified send-off!

    With the Brunel Funeral, our funeral directors near Clifton will take care of everything, from the conveyancing of the deceased into our care to preparing the body for viewings and providing transport on the day of the funeral.

    A direct cremation is the simplest (and cheapest) option we provide. There will be no mourners present, apart from the funeral director and pallbearers, allowing you to bid farewell to your loved one in your own way and time.

    To find out more about the cost of our funeral packages near Clifton, don’t hesitate to contact the team at Brunel Funeral Directors.

    Where should I sit during the service?

    It can be difficult to judge where the best place is to sit at a funeral.

    The front few benches at the church or crematorium are usually reserved for close friends and family. Anyone who is involved in the funeral is also likely to be sat on the end so they can get in and out of the bench with ease.

    While you could ask someone on the day of the funeral, if you’re not a close relative, aim to sit in the middle or at the back of the church.

    If you’re taking your children to the funeral, consider sitting near the back in case they get bored, restless or upset. This way, you can take them outside without disturbing the ceremony.

    What are traditional types of funeral flowers?

    Lilies, roses and chrysanthemums tend to be the most popular flowers for funeral services – used to adorn the coffin and decorate the grave.

    Whether you’d like a beautiful coffin spray, letters to spell out the name of your loved one (i.e. Mum, Dad, Grandma, Grandad, etc.), or a shaped tribute, Brunel Funeral Directors can take care of the flower arrangements on your behalf.

    Floral tributes can be sent directly to our funeral home on the edge of Westbury on Trym. We will care for them until the day of the funeral and arrange them either inside with the other tributes or at the graveside.

    To discuss your requirements in more detail, get in touch with our funeral directors close to Clifton.

    Should I take out a funeral plan?

    If you can afford to, we’d highly advise taking out a funeral plan.

    Not only will it save your loved ones the financial onus when you pass away, but you’ll be able to decide exactly what you want – including the type of funeral service, coffin, music, flowers, etc.

    Our pre-paid funeral plans from Golden Leaves incorporate everything you need for the perfect send-off, and several payment options are available. You can either pay one lump sum – giving yourself one less thing to worry about – or you can spread the cost with monthly instalments.
