About Us

Welcome to F.M & J. Waits Funeral Directors, serving every person, every time. We promise to provide you, your family and your loved one with high-quality care and compassion.
The families we serve are at the heart of everything we do. For over 200 years the families that surround us have trusted us with the care of their loved ones and to arrange a loving funeral for them.
We love our community and do everything we can to give back to them. Our premises can be used, free of charge, for people to come and meet for whatever cause or need.
We offer flexible funeral services, giving you a complete choice of options for your loved one's send off. Take a look at our service page to learn more about an Attended funeral and an unattended funeral.
We cater for funerals of all faiths and cultures, burial and cremation services, and non-religious funerals. If an alternative funeral is most fitting, then we can arrange for bespoke services, such as woodland burials, green funerals and burials at sea. We are also here to give you careful guidance wherever it is needed, such as help with what to do when someone dies, legal advice, and emotional support. Your well-being is paramount to us, and we will do everything we can to make a difficult time a little easier for you.
