portfolioCHubert Swainson Funeral Services Ltd are experienced funeral directors who have been at the heart of the local community for over one hundred years, helping those who have suffered bereavements to say goodbye to their loved ones with dignity.

Geoffrey Brewster (Dip FD) the owner and manager of Hubert Swainson, has been with the business for 40 years. He worked for many years with his father-in-law, Hubert Swainson, who built up the successful company that continues today.

Hubert Swainson worked alongside his father, Ernest Swainson, who originally established the business as a cabinetmaker, carpenter and funeral director. This family history is very important to the business today; the high standards established over the years have created an outstanding reputation as Funeral Directors and has made us into experienced funeral directors who’s every effort is made to ensure this excellence in personal arrangements continues.

Geoff Brewster is joined by an experienced team. Philip Morris (Dip FD) has 25 years service in the business and this experienced brings a detailed understanding of individual requirements at this difficult time.
