Our Services

Our aim is to advise and guide you through the legal requirements involved in arranging a funeral and to provide you with information on the services and products available, so that the funeral arrangements of your loved on can be tailored to your individual choice. Some of the products and services we offer are:

Chapel of Rest

Family and friends are welcome to visit the Chapel of Rest by appointment, whenever convenient to them. This can be either within or outside of our usual hours of business.


  • Traditional motor hearse in black, silver, white or pink
  • Horse-drawn hearse with two or four horses
  • Non-traditional hearse, e.g. motorcycle
  • Limousines to seat up to 6 people

Coffins and Caskets

A selection of traditional, contemporary or environmentally friendly coffins, caskets and urns are available.

Funeral Catering

Catering provided in your home or selected local venues and menus planned to individual requirements.

Newspaper Notices

J Woodford can assist with the wording of obituary, acknowledgement or in memoriam notices and arrange publication in local and national press.

Printed Funeral Stationery

A range of printed stationery is available through J Woodford including Order of Service and In Memoriam cards.


Charitable donations can be administered by us and forwarded to charitable causes on your behalf. A list of donors names will be sent to you at no additional charge. Do please note that we prefer donations to be made by cheque and payable to the charity rather than to J Woodford.


A comprehensive brochure for new memorials is available from J Woodford on request. Our stonemason will be pleased to meet with you to discuss your requirements by arrangement. Free estimates are available for cleaning and refurbishing, or adding to existing memorials. A selection of flower containers for memorials, vases and ashes graves are available also.
