Hergest & Cavell Funeral Directors

Gravesend, DA12 2RQ

Based in Gravesend, Kent, Hergest & Cavell Funeral Directors is a family-run, independent funeral service dedicated to offering quality without compromise. As funeral directors, we believe that making families feel comfortable, and giving them the confidence that they and their loved one will be well cared for, are deeply important. We will gently guide you through the funeral arrangement process, making sure that you have everything you need to make informed decisions about your loved one’s funeral. We take extra care to listen carefully to each detail of your wishes, so that you can trust that everything you and your family need will be in place on the day. Hergest & Cavell Funeral Directors combines traditional family values with all the best aspects of a modern approach. We cater to all faiths, and we pride ourselves in the wealth of affordable options our families can choose between to create a truly personal funeral. Our coffins range from eco-friendly bamboo or wool to traditional wood, and we can even provide picture coffins that you can decorate with meaningful images. We offer a creative range of funeral transport, from horse-drawn hearses to motorbikes. Hergest & Cavell Funeral Directors was started by Paula and Peter Hergest and their friends Sharon and Tony Cavell. Together, they have over 50 years’ experience in providing caring and highly professional funeral support. We understand bereavement, and how difficult and confusing this time can be, so personally care for each of the clients who come to us. Our compassionate and friendly outlook comes from caring deeply about our work. If you would like to talk to us, either about arranging a funeral or simple to get advice on your next steps with no obligation, our support line is open every day, all day. If you’re not able to visit, we’re happy to come to you at home. We will be there for you whenever you need us.
