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.
