Stibbards & Sons

Funeral Directors in Westcliff-on-Sea

Designed to accommodate the diverse and multi-cultural society that we live in today, our Southend office opened in 2016. With a large Chapel of Rest and specialist washing facilities on site, we are able to offer families a greater amount of control as to how they care for their loved one, in accordance with their own cultural traditions. If you do decide to choose our Chapel of Rest, we can provide a private environment which we can personalise to reflect the personality and life of your loved one. S. Stibbards & Sons take the greatest of care to ensure that the deceased look as peaceful as possible when you visit our Chapel of Rest.

In addition to our Chapel of Rest and specialist washing facilities, we can offer a range of different services, because how you wish to say farewell to your loved one is entirely your choice. We have over five generations of experience, which means we understand that everyone is different. That’s exactly why we aim to cater for everyone’s needs to create a service that reflects a life once lived.

From a traditional funeral to a direct cremation, your options are limitless with our bespoke arrangements. These can be tailored to fit your individual requirements or loved one’s wishes if they left some in their will or had a pre-paid funeral plan in place.

At S. Stibbards & Sons, our compassionate team are here to help you through the entire process to help you create a meaningful service that marks the passing of your loved one.
