Established on our present site in 1932, the Hawkins Family have been serving the local communities since the 1880s, specialising in all forms of stone masonry, expanding in the 1930s to become a dedicated provider of high quality funerals.
In 2004 our premises were rebuilt to provide purpose built facilities for the needs of the 21st century. This included air conditioned Chapels of Rest for clients in our care.
Throughout the years, we have stayed true to our tradition of providing the local community with a caring, sympathetic and professional service during their time of bereavement. We have found that it is our commitment to providing a meaningful and personal approach to funeral directing that is most appreciated by families and individuals during their time of need.
Our experienced, friendly staff, who all live in the local communities, are here to offer help, advice and guidance throughout all aspects of the funeral process – from floral tributes to monument requirements and press notices among other details.
We are available during office hours should you require advice or information and support. Our staff are always happy to visit clients in their own home.
We are also available 24 hours a day for emergencies.
We understand that different families have different needs and requirements, which is why we take particular pride in being able to meet these requirements with our flexible funeral arrangements and range of pre-paid plans. We will endeavour to discuss your requirements in utmost detail in order to provide you with a comprehensive, tailor-made plan.
Our premises at Highlands Road offers pleasant and comfortable surroundings with private Chapels of Rest, where relatives may visit their loved ones. Additionally our premises at Cameron Lodge offers a comfortable environment for meetings, whether it be finalising services with an Officiant or simply enquiring about pricing. At L Hawkins & Sons we are proud to offer our services to all faiths, denominations and ethnic communities and funerals can be arranged for anywhere in the country.
