Every life is precious and unique. At N.E Downing we believe that the funeral which honours a life and should also be special and unique. Helping families to lay their loved on to rest in a dignified and meaningful way lies at the heart of everything we do. We have a vast experience of providing a wide range of funerals tailored to personal preferences.

We can provide everything from a simple, quiet family funeral to a grand public event. Tradtionally, funerals start which a church service or a gathering at our chapel of rest. This is often followed by a ceremony at the crematorium or cemetery.

As the West Midlands community that we serve becomes more cross cultural and ethnically diverse, we are increasingly called upon to assist with the funerals of those from differnt traditions and backgrounds; we are only too happy to tailor our funerals to your needs and specifications.

Many families now choose to have secular or non religious funerals. We can recommend humanist or lay celebrants who can help you to conduct a non religious ceremony in accordance with your requirements.

Whatever your wishes, our team will always endeavour to meet your needs with the upmost compassion and sensitivity.

We are on hand, offering support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
