At Harold Wood Funeral Services, we have decades of experience in providing a guiding hand to people in the weeks and months after bereavement. If you have suffered a loss, our warm and welcoming family-led team is here to support you, and we serve all nationalities and faiths.

Same Family, Seventh Decade

As Essex funeral directors, we are proud of our local, family-led service, and our long history of providing skilled and sensitive funeral care. 

Supporting You When Someone Dies

Losing a loved one can be overwhelming, and you may not know what to do next. We will guide you through the next steps with care and compassion.

A Helping Hand for Funeral Arrangements

We believe in a personalised, tailored approach to funeral planning. Our empathetic and experienced team is here to help, every step of the way.

Choosing the Right Funeral Service

Every person is unique, and we all have different ways of saying goodbye.

At our Essex funeral home, our team is dedicated to helping people plan meaningful funerals that honour the lives, wishes and personalities of those who have passed, while also fulfilling the emotional needs of their family and friends.

Funeral Plans

With a funeral plan, you can help to relieve your family of some of the financial stress and any worries about your funeral arrangements.

How Else We Can Help You

Whether it’s a wreath full of your loved one’s favourite flowers or a memorial that puts your feelings into words, we can help you create poignant tributes to the memory of those who have passed, and take care of the thoughtful details in funeral planning. 


Everything went to plan and was dealt with quietly, efficiently and with dignity.


You gave us an excellent service and there were personal touches like the picture on the coffin and red ties and handkerchiefs.


We asked you to help us because of a visit to your Hilldene office. The service we received was second to none.
