F Christophers & Son Funeral Directors have served Newton Abbot, Ashburton and the surrounding areas of South Devon and Dartmoor since 1846. We’re a proudly independent firm of funeral directors and are based in the middle of the lovely Stannary town of Ashburton, providing a friendly and personal service 24-hours a day and 7 days a week. We provide excellent continuity of service and ensure that you are assigned a funeral director who will support you and guide you through the early stages of funeral arrangement through to the day of the funeral and afterwards. F Christophers & Son Funeral Directors are also proud to offer the use of Homelands Hall in Newton Abbot, which can cater for as many as 60 people. This sympathetically designed and tasteful service hall is built from oak beams and solid oak doors, and has the feel of a traditional country chapel. It gives the family and loved ones of the deceased full freedom over the style and length of service and enables them to personalise it to their tastes and wishes. Also included is a sound system for your choice of musical accompaniment and a photo screen for a picture display. F Christophers & Son Funeral Directors will help, support and advise you in any way that we can and understand that it is a rare privilege to stand alongside your family at this sensitive and crucial time. We help you to represent the personality and character of your loved one in the ceremony and arrangements, from traditional funerals to ceremonies featuring horse-drawn carriages or motorbike and sidecar hearses, green funerals and woodland burials. We are only too happy to help you and accommodate your wishes, and we will never put any pressure on you for any services which are unnecessary and not required.
