Stibbards & Sons

Funeral Directors in Southend-on-Sea

Our latest facility in Southend-on-Sea was opened in 2016 and has been specially designed to accommodate the diverse and multi-cultural society that we live in today. With a large Chapel of Rest and specialist washing facilities on site, we are able to offer the many different cultural communities specific facilities that will not be found at any other Funeral Directors in the Southend-on-Sea area.

From a traditional funeral service to a direct cremation, you have many different options with our bespoke funeral arrangements that are tailored to fit your personal preferences and requirements. Choosing a bespoke arrangement means you can ensure that their funeral service will be as unique as they were.

If you have a little bit more flexibility, then you could choose our essential package for a simple funeral at a lower cost. However, be assured that just because a price is lower doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the life a loved one with a simple funeral.

If you have a personal requirement or unique request, our compassionate and friendly team will be happy to discuss our funeral services with you and how we can best celebrate the life once lived.

Sylvie Darke

A very professional and considerate service. Thank you

Rajesh Aggarwal

Apart from starting about 5 mins early, which meant there was not time to seat the deceased’s sister properly everything was excellent. Thank you for your care and attention.

Alan Mitchell

Keith’s widow has been telling all her friends how well his funeral was arranged. There were no problems or unexpected difficulties and all the people involved were exceptional. Special thanks for taking the flowers back to her bungalow, that was very greatly appreciated. Thank you for making a sad occasion easy and straightforward.

Graham Swan
