Funeral Services Exeter

Funerals today are enormously varied and pre-paid Funeral plans are popular. Woodland Burials and eco-friendly Funerals are increasingly favoured. We also welcome unusual requests and will do everything possible to create a bespoke Funeral tailored to your wishes. With this website we hope to provide impartial guidance and useful information for anyone making Funeral arrangements in the UK as well as for people in our local community.


Our family believes you should expect value for money and the highest standard of care and service from the moment contact is made.

Our Independent Family Funeral Directors business in Exeter was established in 1906.

Following on from Bernard Sillifant, Martin and Marc, the 3rd and 4th generations of the family to carry on the business, are a father and son team with over 60 years experience within the funeral profession. The premises, which consist of Office, Chapels of Rest, Garages and Workshops, are situated near Exeter City Centre, and provide an informal environment in which to discuss and finalise any funeral arrangements.

Should anyone prefer these discussions to take place in the privacy of their own home, we are only too pleased to accommodate their wishes.

We endeavour, under all circumstances, to provide full and correct information about all the services that are available to you. Our aims are to listen to you, treat you with respect and courtesy in an effort to meet your personal needs, and ensure that you are completely satisfied with the quality of service that we are able to provide.

Our offices and Chapels of Rest are available Monday to Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm by appointment. Evening and weekend appointments must be made in office hours.

Our professional advice is freely available on any problems which may confront you. These include questions concerning fees, costings, distance funerals, (both home and overseas), legal requirements, documentation, differing religious practices, non religious ceremonies, transport, press announcements, printing, catering, floral tributes, recording and forwarding of donations, assistance with funeral costs and any other personal concerns or requirements that you may have.
