Funeral home

A bereavement in the family is a crisis we all have to face sooner or later.  It is at times like this when you need to be able to place your trust in the hands of caring, sensitive professionals.


B J Watson, the independent family firm of funerals directors and embalmers is owned and operated by the Livesey family who have been established funeral directors since 1848 and provides 24 hour service, 365 days a year.


Once you have  registered a death of your loved one, we will take care of everything from obituary notices, floral tributes, limousines and catering to order of service sheets, pall bearers, grave diggers, acknowledgement stationary and notices, and the scattering or interment of the cremated remains. We also have our own in-house memorial company who can provide a no-obligation proof and estimate for headstones etc. www.taylorsmemorials.co.uk


An infinite choice of funerals are available - budget, DSS grants, bespoke - all with the choice of coffins from cardboard, bamboo, wicker, and environmental to veneers, solids and caskets, from our own in-house coffin manufacturing company www.cartmellandbarlow.co.uk  Coffins can be lined, fitted and externally adorned to individual requirements.  All religious denominations, humanist and secular care catered for.  Professionally endorsed by the National Association of Funeral Directors and the British Institute of Embalmers, the facilities provided by this family firm are second to none.  We can arrange everything from marquees, horse drawn transport, a motorcycle funeral or a vintage funeral to a funeral accompanied by a Caribbean band or Scottish Piper.


Exhumations and repatriations from the UK, EU and around the World.  


The death of someone close is inevitably a distressing time, whether one is prepared for it or not, and the prospect of coping with all the practical arrangements can seem just too painful to contemplate.


It is at times like these when you need to be able to place your trust in caring, sensitive professionals.  Whatever your wishes at this unavoidably upsetting time, you can be certain that B J Watson’s will take care of them to the last detail.
