J.B. Shakespeare Funeral Directors have proudly served bereaved families in the Croydon area for nearly 150 years. Founded in 1877, we offer a professional and caring 24-hour-a-day service so that you can get in touch with us in your time of need. At J.B. Shakespeare Funeral Directors we are able to offer advice on what to do when someone close to you passes away, and that’s the same no matter if they died at home, in hospital or suddenly and without warning. We’ll advise you with regards what to do when contacting the coroner and help you begin to make the funeral arrangements. We can offer you genuine choice when it comes to arranging the funeral that best suits the wishes of you, your family and your loved one. From simple funerals through to green or eco-friendly funerals, J.B. Shakespeare Funeral Directors can help. We’re also able to provide a wide variety of funeral services including cremations, burials, repatriations and pre-arranged funeral plans. We have a range of coffins, casks and ashes urns to suit your wishes. Many of the coffins we stock are made in our own workshop, and we have a number of eco-friendly options available too. When considering transport, we have a fleet of traditional and dignified Daimler limousines and hearses available to you. However, should you wish for an alternative form of transport for your loved one’s final journey, we can arrange horse-drawn carriages, motorcycles with a side-car hearse and even vans or flat-bed lorries. We will always do all that we can to provide whatever you require to match your wishes for the funeral ceremony. We also have a chapel of rest where you are able to visit the deceased to say your last farewells in comfort and privacy. If you’d like to find out more about our funeral services, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us by filling out the form on this page.
