The best way to get in touch
Over 115 years ago, Mr John Davies Snr established John Davies and Sons Funeral Directors in Park Terrace, Trelewis. To this day it remains in the same location serving the communities of Treharris, Trelewis, Nelson and others. Originally incorporating trades such a Wheelwright, Coachbuilder and Undertaker, Mr John Davies Snr was later joined by three of his sons, Emlyn, Elvet and Gwyn, who as well as carrying out the duties relating to the funeral business would also get involved in building repairs and operating a taxi service. As time progressed, it was decided that the focus of the business would become Funeral Directing. This was helped in part by the slow decline of the coachbuilding and building sides of the business. In 1994, John Davies and Sons Funeral Directors was incorporated as a Private Limited Company and is now run by the original founder's Grandson. We couldn’t be prouder that after 115 years, we are still a local, family run, independent funeral directors, operating with the same principles as our founder did. As well as still operating from Park Terrace, Trelewis, we have expanded and added a private Chapel of Rest alongside our office to allow the families we serve to have access to a quiet, peaceful place where they can go and reflect. To expand our high-quality service to the communities of Gelligaer, Penallta, Hengoed, Bargoed, Ystrad Mynach, we opened a second office in Heol Penallta where along with our office in Trelewis, we are able to arrange all aspects of a funeral including liaison with all the necessary third parties, provision of order of service sheets, floral tributes, the provision of memorial as well as any other request you may have. At John Davies and Sons, we are proud to be a local business with long connections to our communities’ families. As an affiliate of the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD), you can rest assured that the standards we operate at are of a high level. Our Chapel of Rest is set in Private grounds, with parking available. It can accommodate approximately 60 people during a service. Here we have the facilities for you to come and spend time with your loved one and this is where they will rest until the day of the funeral. This is where our main office is based.
