What we do

Here at Brunel Funeral Directors, we recognise that everyone grieves in their own way. Some like to share fond memories of their loved ones, while others prefer to put on a brave face and let their emotions out behind closed doors.

Setting us apart from other funeral directors in Hanham, we refuse to rush our families. So take as much time as you need – and we’ll be here to support you every step of the way.

Funeral arrangements

Organising a funeral can be difficult but, with the help of our experienced team, we can ease the burden and provide everything you need to bid farewell to your loved one.

At Brunel Funeral Directors, we work hard to keep our standards high and our prices low. We provide a variety of funeral services and packages, including:

  • The Brunel Cremation – an all-inclusive service for £1995. It includes the conveyancing of the deceased to our funeral home, preparation of the body for viewings, the provision of a hearse and pallbearers, and a simple 20-minute service carried out with compassion and care.
  • Direct Cremation – not everyone wants a traditional/religious funeral service. And starting from £1150, our direct cremation is an affordable alternative with no minister, mourners, or ceremony. Perfect if it was the descendant’s wish for a low-key, dignified funeral.
  • The Bespoke Service – give your loved one the send-off they truly deserve by personalising the service with a specialist hearse, coffin, flowers, music, and additional limousines for the family. Though the cost of our bespoke service can vary depending on the specific items you choose, we will discuss alternative options to ensure complete satisfaction, and we provide transparent fees and tailored quotes.

Whether you know which funeral service to choose or not, our funeral directors near Harman can talk you through the different options in further detail and help you to make the arrangements over a cup of tea.

Additional funeral services

Funeral directors in Harman will help you to plan the funeral, advise on the most suitable packages for your budget, and consider the deceased’s wishes. But here at Brunel Funeral Directors, we do so much more than that.

We ensure that every aspect of the service – whether it be a cremation or burial – is perfectly executed.

We will take care of the floral arrangements on your behalf, just let us know what you want (i.e. a single flower, posy, wreaths, shaped or number tributes). You can also arrange for the flowers to be sent to our funeral home in Westbury on Trym if you’d prefer.

A selection of scatter tubes and caskets can be found on our website, but if you don’t see what you’re looking for, get in touch as we have a vast range at our funeral home too.

Keepsakes such as glass pebbles, paperweights, fingerprint jewellery, and memory tables are also available. And as you’d expect from funeral directors in Hanham, we provide a full masonry service.

Funeral plans

Increasingly more people are thinking ahead and making arrangements for their funeral – and it’s with good reason.

Taking out a funeral plan gives you the peace of mind that you have the costs covered in the event of your death. This not only saves your family the heartache and financial stress of organising your funeral, but it also allows you to choose the service you want, which music you’d like to be played, and the type of coffin.

Though it’s not something all funeral directors in Hanham offer, we provide pre-paid plans from Golden Leaves that allow you to secure your family’s future.

With our funeral plans, you can pay in one lump sum – giving you one less thing to worry about – or in monthly instalments to spread the cost over a fixed term.

Do all funeral directors in Hanham charge the same?


Although funeral director fees will cover most aspects of the funeral arrangements, the price you’ll pay funeral directors in Hanham will differ depending on the firm and package you choose.

Independent funeral directors tend to charge less than corporate chains in the same area. This is because they usually have fewer overheads and are more focused on looking after their bereaved families at such a difficult time.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that, whilst all funeral directors will store, prepare and deliver the body to the crematorium or church on the day of the service, some include additional services in the price. Things like bereavement support, floral tributes, masonry services, memorabilia, etc.

When choosing funeral directors in Hanham, if you can’t find a price list outlining their fees online, don’t be afraid to ask for one. This way, you can make an informed decision as to whether you can afford to use their services.

Is it worth taking out a pre-paid funeral plan?

As independent funeral directors near Hanham, we will always advise you to take out a pre-paid funeral plan, if you have the budget to do so.

Making the arrangements for when the time comes allows you to decide what type of funeral you would like, not what your loved ones think you would have wanted. You can choose every detail – from the type of coffin to the funeral service, readings, flowers, music and headstone.

One of the biggest benefits of our pre-paid funeral plans from Golden Leaves is that you pay for your funeral at today’s rates, so there’s no need to worry about inflation increasing the cost.
