Opened in 2010, our Hainault & Chigwell Funeral Home is our newest location, and the fourth of our funeral parlours. This community has a deep and special meaning to us, with our cousin, friend and fellow director Tricia having lived in the area until her death in 2003. Our Hainault & Chigwell Funeral Home is dedicated to her, and we were very proud to make it our fourth funeral home.

Our Hainault & Chigwell Funeral Home is located near Ilford, just a five minute walk from the Hainault London Underground station. Street parking with four wheels is available on the pavement outside. We recommend avoiding parking between 11:30am-12:30pm, but parking in surrounding side roads may be available during these times.
