The last few years have seen a dramatic change in the way people are thinking about funerals and the funeral service. The days are gone when families were content to allow a funeral director to take control and arrange the funeral in a way that they felt appropriate. People are, quite rightly, increasingly unwilling to ‘live in the 21st Century but die in the 19th Century’.

Here at Saint and Forster we believe that a funeral should be a celebration of the life of the person who has died and the family and friends should be firmly in the driving seat; hence our motto, ‘Funeral Care…Your Way.’ Whatever you want, whether it is a simple funeral with no fuss, a more traditional funeral, or something a little bit different, we are here to make it happen for you.

If you belong to a particular religious tradition; whether Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Sikh, Baha’i, Muslim or Pagan; please contact us to discuss your particular needs. We have expertise in most religious traditions and can accommodate most requests. We treat all of the deceased in our care and their families with respect and consideration for their beliefs and traditions.

  • Keith was inspirational in conducting another family funeral, so I knew that my partner would have been delighted to have Keith conduct her own funeral-which he did superbly

  • Keith and Jen were all very kind, caring and considerate always, making me feel reassured and confident that everything was being handled in the best way possible. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

  • Thankyou for all your help and kindness. I wish your company every success in the future, providing those extra personalised services that the impersonal national companies do not, cannot or will not provide. I recommend your company's exemplary services wholeheartedly and enthusiastically. Thankyou.

  • We would like to thank you for helping us with the funeral of our very dear father. Your service has been first class. The funeral was exactly how dad wished it to be. Thanks to you and your dedicated team. You helped us through a very difficult time, for which we are most grateful.
