How we Work

As a family business we understand how every funeral is personal and every family we serve must be treated as individuals. At every stage of our service, to you, we will listen and can respectfully guide and advise you. Our philosophy is that a funeral should be carried out exactly according to your wishes, and all our efforts are focused towards ensuring that every detail is correct and professionally provided with care.

We are happy to discuss the arrangements with you in the comfort of your own home or, if you prefer, you are welcome to come to our arrangement room at our premises in Ermin Street. We can help with arrangements for differing religions and ceremonies, non-religious funerals and environmentally friendly options. We will also be able to help you with press notices in both local and national newspapers, floral tributes, service stationary, catering, administering and distributing of donations, monumental masonry, pre-payment funerals and offer help with any other concerns you may have.

You are most welcome to visit our offices and chapel in Ermin Street at any time between 9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday. You can also discuss arrangements, or use our viewing facilities, by appointment, outside of these times. You can telephone us 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.


It was with such trepidation that we returned from our last visit to Ann in hospital. Turning to you for assistance with final arrangements removed all the worry and hassle for us associated with the funeral. Thank you for the kind and considerate way you helped us through the myriad of complications with seemed to arise each day.

Our friends and family, who had travelled long distances, were most enamoured of the church and all the arrangements, made quietly and unobtrusively, managed to create an ambience in keeping with Joyce Grenfell’s verse and the way we felt.


On behalf of my family and I, we would all like to express our sincere thanks to you all at Pearce Funeral Services for looking after our mother and directing her funeral. John, the day I met you I trusted my mother to your services. 

You walked into my home and an older brother, became like a member of our family, and lightened our grief, we thank you so much. Everything you have done for our mother was perfect.
