As your local independent funeral director, we have looked after the families of Chard since 1890. We promise compassionate care with a personalised planning service and excellent 24 hr services available. We are the team you want to be helping you care for the memorial of your loved one. Our team of experienced funeral directors can take care of all of the necessary arrangements, working closely with you to find a fitting tribute for your loved one.
We are a well renowned family business. Our owner, Mrs Deirdre Cargen, is a friendly and popular, compassionate professional who vastly benefits from over a 120 years of accumulated family experience. We pride ourselves on attention to detail and we offer horse drawn funeral hearses for a respectful and dignified final journey. We cater to all who have lost a loved one and are based in Chard, serving the communities of Chard and Ilminster and the surrounding villages.
When laying your loved one to rest you do not want to take any chances. For your added peace of mind we are members of the National Association of Funeral Directors. The NAFD Symbol has been adopted as a kite mark – this is a guarantee of high quality professional care for the bereaved. The NAFD Diploma in funeral directing is recognised as the gold standard throughout the profession and as members of this association, we are contributors to the strictest codes of practice.
Here at Bishop's Funeral Services we pride ourselves in the personal services that we provide. You really can rest assured when you enlist in our services because we work hard to ensure that we act professionally at all times, conducting ourselves with the greatest sympathy and understanding.
