Our history…

Formerly known as Axell-Eames Funeral Service, we started our family business in 2006. For generations, our family has been serving the Heathfield community with our connections dating back to the 1800s. Our family is at the heart of our business and continues to run the day-to-day functions of our high street offices.

We take care of the deceased, which may include hygienically treating (embalming), dressing the deceased and preparing the chapel of rest in which loved ones can come and say their final goodbyes – in peace and tranquillity. As a family-run business, members of our own family carry out the removal of the deceased to our chapel of rest, prepares the coffins, act as lead bearers and transport your loved one to your chosen venue in a dignified manner for the final goodbye.
