Christophers' Family Funerals have served Newton Abbot, Ashburton and the surrounding areas of South Devon and Dartmoor since 1846. We're a proudly independent firm of funeral directors, with funeral homes in the middle of the lovely Stannary town of Ashburton and Newton Abbot. We provide a friendly and personal service 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. We provide excellent continuity of service and ensure that you are assigned a funeral director who will support you and guide you through the early stages of funeral arrangement through to the day of the funeral and afterwards.
The Services We Offer
Arranging a Funeral
As an independent funeral director, we are able to accommodate your requests to make your service as personalised as possible. We offer anything from traditional services to a completely bespoke celebration. This includes the simplest low-cost funerals, church services, cremations, green funerals and woodland burials.
We understand that this may be the first time you have had to arrange a funeral, and that it can be a daunting process. We will be with you every step of the way, providing excellent continuity of service. We will ensure that you are assigned a funeral director who will support you and guide you through the early stages of funeral arrangement through to the day of the funeral and afterwards.
Pre-planning a funeral is a simple way to reduce the stress and expense on your family when you’re gone. By taking out a funeral plan, you fix the cost of professional funeral directing services and once the plan is paid in full, as long as we carry out your funeral and your requirements don't change, our direct costs are guaranteed. You can also make a contribution towards third party costs and clarify the type of service you want, relieving your family of these decisions at a difficult time.
