How can we support you?

Across South East London, East London and North Kent we have ten branches serving the local communities of Beckenham, Biggin Hill & Westerham, Blackfen & Sidcup, Bromley, Catford & Sydenham, Eltham, Ladywell & Lewisham,  Orpington, Walthamstow and West Wickham.  In addition, we have two fully equipped regional branches in Aylesbury and Southampton.

Our Branch Managers are always on hand to offer expert advice on all aspects of arranging a funeral, repatriation or memorial for a loved one.

Throughout our site, you'll find a range of useful resources, from funeral price estimators to guides on funeral etiquette.

But a website can only do so much. Whenever you are ready, we'll be available in person, on the telephone or via videocall to answer your questions and guide you through our services.  


Our Principles

Mears Family Funerals, just like every company within The Steven Mears Group, is founded on three key principles:

personal-service Personal Service

Mears Family Funerals are able to manage every element of the tribute to your loved one. From detailed funeral arrangements to the repatriation of the deceased, from personalised floral designs to the erection of a lasting memorial, we provide help and support at every step.

We have, as a family, been caring for the Bereaved for four generations.

Yet, you'll only have to deal with one person, your local Manager, who will be available and responsible for ensuring that everything is as you want it to be. 

professional-staff Professional Staff

We aim high in everything that we do. It's not easy ensuring that each manager has a thorough understanding of every service that we offer, and we are only able to maintain our personal service standards by employing good people and investing in them.

We use professional training programs offered by trade associations such as the NAFD where appropriate, for example to keep abreast of the latest developments in important areas such as "green funerals" and the environment.

But just as important is the specialist knowledge and customer service ethos that permeates the whole Group, encouraged and sustained through regular "best practice" meetings and staff secondments to other parts of the organisation. 

exceptional-value Exceptional Value

Throughout this site you will find detailed pricing information on each of our services, prices that we are proud to stand behind because we believe that they offer excellent value for money.

Wherever possible, we have simplified pricing - for example, we offer a single memorial price regardless of where in the country it is to be erected. 

Providing choice and the flexibility to personalise a funeral to truly reflect the life of a loved one means our funeral pricing is centred around the choice of coffin and our fixed Essential Services. Our price estimator allows you to add certain extra services and the third party disbursements based on the cremation or burial venue.

Finally, where we are required to make payments to third parties (often called disbursements), we clearly indicate these fees which we charge at cost. 


 “On behalf of myself and our family, we would like to send special thanks to Sharon, James and Stephen for a wonderful send off for our dad. From the time dad was collected from the home to the time we laid him to rest, the compassion and service provided was outstanding. They all ensured our dad was given the love and care that he deserved. We are so grateful for the personal touches like home visits, emails, chats on the phone touched our hearts.”
