Our Services


Still operating as a genuine independent family firm, we have a fleet of two hearses and three limousines, a Private Ambulance transfer vehicle, our own workshop where we continue to make our own coffins, a Private Chapel of Rest and well equipped mortuary facilities.

After the actual registration of the death, which has to be dealt with by family or executors, Freeman's are able to take care of all other arrangements, including dealing with all official paperwork, press inserts, floral arrangements, Order of Service printing and advice on any aspect in connection with the funeral. Apart from the traditional arrangements we are also able to offer various different styles of hearses including Horse Drawn and Motor Cycle Hearses. We can also offer various different types of coffin apart from the traditional wood, including wicker, willow, metal caskets and cardboard coffins of any design. We are also able to provide white doves on the day of the funeral.

We are now also able to offer a 'Direct Cremation' service, which is suitable for the growing number of people who do not want to have a Funeral Service. Details of this are available on request. We also offer a pre paid funeral plan option through 'Golden Charter Funeral Plans', where people can make their own funeral arrangements, so they know that things are in order when the time comes for their own funeral to be arranged.
