Stibbards & Sons

Funeral Directors in Leigh-on-Sea

Our crematoriums in Basildon and Southend which both have full facilities means we are able to conduct simple and bespoke funerals in Leigh on Sea and the surrounding areas.

Choosing how you say goodbye to those who have passed is completely your choice. But, if you are unsure, then we are here to help. As a funeral director in the local community of Leigh on Sea, we can organise a funeral that is completely tailored to your preferences. With over 150 years of experience, we know how special life is and that every funeral is personal. That’s why we provide a range of services that can cater for everyone’s wishes. We can also help you choose memorial jewellery, grave markers and music. Additionally, if you are unsure what type of funeral service to choose for your loved one, then we can help.

As well as our range of funeral services, we also offer bereavement support. At S. Stibbards & Sons, we understand that grief affects everyone in different ways. We don’t want you to be afraid to talk about the person who has passed away. Close family and friends might purposely not mention the deceased’s name because they don’t want to make you upset. And, if you feel like you can’t talk to them, then this can make you feel isolated. We want you to know that you do not have to face this challenging time alone. Our experienced and qualified bereavement support team are available to speak to you and offer you emotional support and guidance.

Based at our Leigh-on-Sea office, we have dedicated facilities so you will be seen in a safe and confidential environment. Should you wish to you can then talk freely to gain a better understanding of your thoughts and emotions.
