Welcome to Eastwood and District Funeral Service...
Eastwood and District Funeral Service is part of the Eastwood Funeral Partnership of four independent family-owned Funeral Homes. Our sister funeral homes are Kimberley Funeral Service and Gillotts Funeral Service at both Heanor, and Stapleford.
Our ethos combines the traditional values of professionalism, quality and service with the more contemporary principles of choice, flexibility, compassion and imagination.
We believe that funerals are important, both to the individual bereaved family and to our wider society. The form a funeral takes will be influenced by the beliefs, values, lifestyle and culture of the person who has passed away, and should capture these essential characteristics. This may involve a traditional Church Service or a ceremony with no religious content, a simple intimate gathering or a flamboyant and elaborate event. Our role is to discuss and advise on the options available to put in place the necessary arrangements to best reflect your wishes.
Our aim is to provide a service which is individual, flexible and responsive, and to have available the highest quality products and facilities, such as vehicles, coffins and caskets and associated items.The following pages detail the services and facilities we have available to assist our clients, and there are a number of documents available to download which give more information and detail. However, if you have any questions, or wish to proceed with either funeral arrangements or pre-planning, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Our Christmas Memorial Service at St Mary's Church, Greasley was a great success, and those who attended found it a very comforting and uplifting event.
Over a hundred candles were lit by those remembering a loved one, and floral arrangements were made in Church during the Service from flowers that members of the congregation had supplied. Thank you to Rev. Dave Marvin and all at St Mary's Church Greasley for allowing us to participate in this Service.
Join us for our Christmas Memorial Service St Mary's Church, Greasley at 12.00 noon on Sunday 15th December 2013, and light a candle in memory of a loved one. Refreshments are available in the Church Hall following the Service, and all are welcome.
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of our Eastwood Funeral Home moving to our premises on Nottingham Road in Eastwood we held an evening of celebration, inviting local ministers and businesses who we know well and work with regularly. On display were many photographs and items or memorabilia from throughout the history of the business.
In October, Hazel Gent joined our team, working at our Stapleford funeral home to support funeral director Alan Winfield and the families we serve in the Stapleford area.
