Stibbards & Sons

Funeral Directors in Hockley

Located in Hockley village and opened in 2001, we have been providing care and assistance to families in Hockley and the surrounding areas ever since. Our modern facilities include an arrangement room and chapel of rest as well as rest areas for families.

Our chapel of rest is a quiet and safe environment where close family and friends can pay their last respects to a loved one. Once we have organised the funeral arrangements and confirmed the date of service, we recommend waiting for at least 3 days before making an appointment to visit the chapel for rest.

Some people find that visiting the deceased can help them come to terms with death, and others find the process very distressing. However, it is entirely down to personal preference whether you wish to visit our Chapel of Rest or not. To visit our Chapel of Rest, you are required to make an appointment in advance, and it is completely fine to visit your loved one more than once before their funeral service. This gives our team the time to complete any necessary paperwork, care for the deceased and prepare their coffin.

S. Stibbards & Sons are the only family-owned funeral directors in Hockley and are proud of our continued support to the local community and surrounding areas. Our compassionate team are here for you throughout the entire process. So, if you have any special requirements or need any advice regarding your loved one’s funeral arrangements, then please contact us. We are available 24hrs a day.

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.

Having met firstly Peter and thereafter Heather we felt totally at easy. Heather arranged the service after carefully going through all details of the funeral arrangements. Even spent extra time rearranging the order of service without a word of complaint. The funeral cars arrived perfectly on time . Stuart and his team carried out their duties perfectly. All the family agreed that the whole funeral service went without a hitch. Happy to recommend this company without any hesitation. Phil Green

We were extremely happy with the service provided by Stibbards & sons Westcliff. Deborah was very helpful and understanding. She helped us with our requests and ideas at a very difficult time. The day of the funeral went perfectly. Simon and his colleagues did a wonderful job. We couldn’t have asked for a better send off for our lovely Mum. Thank you all very much.
