What we do

Here at Brunel Funeral Directors, we like to do things a little different from other funeral providers in the area.

We understand that losing someone you love is hard to comprehend, especially if the death was sudden. But seeking advice and support from funeral directors close to Keynsham can be comforting. That’s why we offer a personal service of care and never rush you and your family when it comes to organising the funeral.

We have a peaceful funeral home that is bright and welcoming. Whilst it’s here that the deceased will be taken to from the hospital or place of death, you’re also welcome to come and discuss the arrangements of the funeral with our team over a cup of tea or coffee.

Funeral arrangements

Organising a funeral isn’t easy, and many people turn to funeral directors in Keynsham (or near Keynsham) to ease the burden at this sad time.

At Brunel Funeral Directors, we offer various funeral services and packages and will sit down and talk you through the options available to ensure your loved one gets the send-off they would have wanted.

These include:

  • Direct Cremation – a simple, dignified, service with no mourners or minister and no tough decisions to make about the coffin, flowers, transport and venue. This package is ideal if it was the deceased’s wish for a low-key ceremony.
  • Brunel Cremation – this is our most popular funeral package and is delivered with compassion and care. It includes everything from the conveyance of the deceased into our comfortable home to a simple coffin and hearse, as well as doctor and minister fees, documentation for the cremation or burial, and a simple 20-minute service at either Canford or South Bristol Crematorium. If you’d prefer to use Haycombe Crematorium, this is no problem – just let us know.
  • The Bespoke Service – though this tends to be the most expensive funeral package, it allows you to personalise the service and celebrate the life of your loved one in a way they would have wanted. We can provide specialist hearses, coffins, flower arrangements, music, etc.
Additional funeral services

Most funeral directors in Keynsham will help you organise the funeral and assist you in deciding between a cremation and burial. But we offer a range of other services too, ensuring that every funeral is as unique as your loved one.

Our team can take care of the floral arrangements on your behalf – whether it be simple bouquets, a posy or large bespoke letters and numbers. You can even have flowers sent to our funeral home, and we’ll take care of them until the day of the service.

We also provide jewellery and keepsakes, caskets and scatter tubes and deal with all types of monumental masonry requirements. So, if you have any special requests regarding the memorial plaque or gravestone, we encourage you to get in touch.

Funeral plans

Increasingly more people are planning ahead and opting to take out a funeral plan, and it’s with good reason.

Setting up a pre-paid Golden Leaves funeral plan with us at Brunel Funeral Directors is a sensible way to ensure you have the costs covered in the event of your death. It also allows you to choose and pay for the funeral you want – saving your loved ones the financial and emotional pressure.

You might not be too sure which plan is right for you, but our funeral directors near Keynsham will listen carefully to your requirements and recommend the most suitable option for your needs and wishes.

And the best bit? You can either pay in one lump sum (so it’s one less thing to worry about), flexible monthly instalments over 1-5 years, or fixed monthly payments until you reach the age of 90.
