About Us

    About Abbotsfield Funeral Directors

    Abbotsfield Funeral Directors recognises how important it is to be at the heart of our local Ross on Wye and Hereford community.

    The teams at our Ross on Wye and Hereford funeral homes will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one. We have our own on-site service venue.

    Here at Abbotsfield Funeral Directors we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.

    If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.

    Specific memories/proudest moment at work?

    I feel so privileged when I am asked to be involved with helping families during their most traumatic and vulnerable time. My proudest moment was when my father asked me to conduct his funeral and I carried out his instructions exactly as he wanted them. I know my father would have been very proud of his little girl.

    Interests

    I enjoy travelling, spending time with my family especially my grandchildren and my very spoilt dogs.
