Colchester, CO4 0AA

R. Gwinnell & Sons is an independent and family owned funeral directors offering funeral director services to bereaved families in the Essex and East Anglia regions. We have eight branches in this area, in Manningtree, Thorpe-le-Soken, Ipswich, Halstead, Hadleigh, Dovercourt, Clacton-on-Sea and Colchester. Our funeral home in Colchester has a mortuary and a Chapel of Rest. We provide funerals for people of all faiths – including Christian, Muslim, Hindu and Sikh – as well as civil funerals and humanist funerals. R. Gwinnell & Sons truly is a family company. The first branch in Manningtree was established in 1986 by Roy and Christine Gwinnell with the aim of providing a caring and supportive service to local families at their time of need. Roy and Christine's eldest son Matt then joined the business in 2002 to lend support to his parents, having grown up seeing the work they did from close quarters. He has since said it was always a case of when, and not if, he would join the family business. The approach of all of us here at R. Gwinnell & Sons is to offer you all of our combined experience in funeral arrangement along with a genuinely compassionate level of care to you at this difficult time. You can call us at any time, day or night to ask our advice in the funeral matters, which we will gladly volunteer to you. R. Gwinnell & Sons is a proud member of the British Institute of Funeral Directors (BIFD), the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) and the National Association of Monumental Masons (NAMM). Roy Gwinnell has the Diploma in Funeral Directing, giving you added peace of mind that you will receive a highly professional standard of care when entrusting your loved one to us. We will also happily help you to pre-plan your funeral, committing to carrying out your funeral at a future date, when the time comes.
