The days of families living in a close-knit area are long since passed, and we are often requested to look after families who may live some distance from one of our offices. One such location is Basildon and its surrounding areas. At S. Stibbards & Sons, we have been local funeral directors in Basildon, serving the local community since 1867. Our 2 local crematoriums in Basildon and Southend which both have full facilities means we are able to arrange and conduct funerals in the Basildon area and can visit you in your own home if you prefer not to travel during a difficult time. Additionally, if you do not require a funeral for your loved one we can also organise direct cremations.
How you wish to say farewell to your loved one is entirely your choice. As local funeral directors we can organise a funeral whether it be a burial or cremation that is completely tailored to you and your family’s preference, and one that honour’s the memory and celebrates the life of your loved one. We understand how special life is with those that you love. For us, every funeral is unique and personal. We have a service to fulfil every wish, with every detail carried out with the same uncompromising quality of care. We can help you choose funeral flowers, floral tributes, the type of hearse, music, personal tributes and much more. We can also advise you on the type of funeral for your loved one and different types of burials or cremations that are available.
From a traditional funeral to a humanist funeral, your options are limitless with our bespoke arrangements that are tailored to fit your individual requirements. If you have a little more flexibility when it comes to arrangements, then we can provide you with our essential package for a simple funeral at a lower cost. However, be assured that just because a price is cheaper doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the life a loved one with a simple funeral.
In addition to our traditional funeral services we also offer a pre-paid funeral service. With a pre-paid funeral plan from S. Stibbards & Sons, you choose the funeral you want whether it be a traditional funeral or a woodland burial and pay for the services included within the plan at today’s prices. This can help relieve your family of worries and uncertainty at what will inevitably be a difficult time. You will have made the arrangements in advance which could include choosing the funeral flowers, the type of hearse, music and order of service together with having taken care of the funeral price.
As a funeral director with five generations of experience, we pride ourselves in helping to arrange funerals in our local community. We can provide you with a comprehensive range of services to allow you to say goodbye to your loved one and reflect the life they lived.
Not only can we arrange the more traditional aspects of a funeral service, such as the choice of venue, transport and coffin, but we also offer a range of more personal tributes to make it unique, including gowns and interiors, photography and books of condolences.
With a range of additional services, we can help arrange every aspect of your loved one’s funeral - from the essential details all the way through to unique personal tributes.Find out more
