Stibbards & Sons

Funeral Directors in Canvey Island

As the only family-owned funeral directors with offices and Chapels of Rest on Canvey Island, we have been embedded in the community for many generations. And, we are proud to fulfil the wishes of all of our clients and their loved ones.

Our Offices and Chapels of Rest offer full facilities to the bereaved and are conveniently situated off the Canvey Road with plenty of parking for our clients.The chapel of rest offers a dignified environment where family and friends can visit their loved one, and pay their last respects. Some people find that visiting their loved one can help them come to terms with death. However, it is entirely down to personal preference whether you wish to visit our Chapel of Rest or not. At S. Stibbards & Sons, we can discuss whether visiting your loved one is the right decision for you. To visit our Chapel of Rest, you are required to make an appointment in advance. This is to ensure that you have enough time for privacy when visiting your loved one. And, it is completely fine to visit the deceased more than one time whilst they are in our care.

When bought into the care of S. Stibbards & Sons, your loved one will be treated with the utmost dignity and respect. Our experience that spans 5 generations means that we can provide you with a completely bespoke and personalised service. And, we can accommodate any special requests that you might have so that you can have a positive and long last memory of your loved one.

Our long-standing relationship with the community of Canvey Island ensures that we are uniquely placed to offer support and assistance in your time of need.

Our reviews

We do everything we can to make each and every funeral as unique as it can be, to give those who have passed away the send-off they deserve. We believe our reviews reflect our services that we provide our local community.

From the moment we all stepped through the door at the Canvey Island Branch (without an appointment), we knew we were in the right place. We received a warm welcome from Wendy, who subsquently talked us through everything we needed to know and who made our mother’s funeral the best it could be. She was always at the end of the phone, whenever we needed to ask a question. On the day, we felt like Stibbards were holding our hands and we knew we didn’t have to worry about anything except saying goodbye to our mother and Jim’s wife. We will miss her forever. Thank you to everyone, especially to Wendy and to Martin, who paid particular attention on the day to guiding us all, especially Jim, through a very hard day.

Tim Hubbard

We were ever so pleased with the care that was given to us as a family by Debbie at the Westcliff branch and the reassurance she gave as to our particular details. We have no hesitation in recommending her. Also to Stuart and the men on the day. They were particularly careful in all respects. Thanks very much from our family.
