Let Us Lend a Helping Hand

James Family Services offers many different services. Our training and experience have prepared us to help, to reassure, and to understand when a family is faced with the loss of a loved one. We are here to replace confusion with calm, doubts with certainty, and questions with answers. Here, one finds a quiet gentleness in a relaxed atmosphere of respect, efficiency, and trust. We believe your service choice is a personal decision. At James Family Services we explain and guide you through the options available, then allow you to make your own decisions.

However, in arranging a burial or cremation service, we understand that every family is different, every life to be celebrated is unique. Many factors help determine whether a service will become simple or elaborate, private or public, and even religious or secular (non-religious). As respected and experienced Funeral Directors, we are used to solving the big questions.

There are many options available to you and your loved one beyond the role of a traditional funeral directors which we will be more than happy to discuss with you at time of arranging the funeral or funeral plan.

Everything You Need In One

It is our mission to make the process of organising a funeral as simple and streamlines as possible. We do this by offering a complete service including organising the services of external suppliers such as florists, newspapers, churches and grave diggers.

Great service and catered to our personal needs, they treat you as if your one of their family and keep you informed at every step of the way. They went above and beyond looking after our loved one, we knew Sarah was in safe hands. 5-star service. They even acknowledged that pets are part of families and will allow you to incorporate them in the process, as much as you want. We would recommend them every time. Well done and thank you James and the team


It does indeed seem odd to review a buisness of this nature, but it is a time when you really need compassion, and James Family Services was this and more to my family and I. Unfortunately, we have had to use the servcies of James’ Family Services twice this year. The fact we decided to use them for the most recent loss speaks for itself. Nothing is too much trouble, they are at the end of the phone night and day, and show nothing but kindness and respect for the family, and indeed loved ones we lost.
