Ashbourne, G. Wathall & Son Ltd, Derbyshire

Wathall’s is one of Derbyshire’s longest established independent funeral directors, owner managed by the fifth generation of the family, Helen Wathall MBE. 

Wathall’s ethos and culture is to bring the very best levels of service, unrestricted personal choice and value for money to all families. 

With more than 30 experienced members of staff and branches in Derby, Alvaston, Ashbourne, Borrowash and Burton-on-Trent, Wathall’s aim to constantly develop and learn new ways of celebrating a life, whilst remaining considerate to the religious, ethnic or social traditions followed by many. 

The company is ever-conscious of environmental impact and uses sustainable or carbon neutral resources wherever possible. 

As a long-standing member of SAIF – the UK independent funeral directors’ association, they don’t aim to channel clients towards DIY or green funerals however they are more than willing to support and advise those that make this choice.
