At the heart of our ethos is a desire to help families to have a beautiful, unique and fitting farewell for their loved one whatever their budget.
Established in 1926, A E Stoodley & Son remains a genuinely independent business at a time when so many other funeral directors are owned and run by large conglomerate groups and multi-branch organisations.
Our ethos is to ensure that every funeral we conduct is tailored to reflect the life of each individual, and the wishes of their families and friends.
Our Key Principles
Individuality and Attention to Detail
Whether traditional or contemporary, simple or elaborate, we want to ensure that every funeral we arrange is tailored to the wishes of all families and friends, whilst reflecting the life of each individual.
Care & Dignity
You can be assured that all times you and your loved one will be treated with the upmost care and dignity before, during and after the funeral.
Transparency and Flexibility
As well as being members of SAIF and the NAFD, we are very pleased to be recommended by The Natural Death Centre, a UK Charity providing independent funeral advice, and recognizing our values of flexibility, openness and fairness
We are confident that our pricing structures offer transparency, value and fairness. We are also happy to help you if you only want us to assist with individual elements of a funeral, rather than deal with all the arrangements.
