Stibbards & Sons

Funeral Directors in Great Wakering

As the nearest family owned funeral directors to Great Wakering and its surrounding areas, we have a long and proud association with the communities of Great Wakering. Our Shoebury office located in Ness Road is a short distance from Great Wakering and provides full facilities at time of need with a dedicated Chapel of Rest and private arranging room.

We understand that losing someone is one of the hard things that you will have to go through and that bereavement and grief can affect everyone in different ways. That is why we are committed to supporting everyone who is mourning the loss of a loved one. As part of our funeral services, we offer complimentary bereavement support, so you don’t have to go through this emotional time on your own. Our compassionate bereavement support team are always here to speak with you and offer you support while you try to come to terms with the death of a loved one.

When using our bereavement support service, you will be seen in a safe environment where you can talk to a member of our team. Many people find that talking about their feelings can help them to gain an understanding of their thoughts. However, bereavement support isn’t for everyone, so if you are unsure whether using such a service would help you during this time of loss, then we are more than happy to discuss it with you.
