Funeral Directors Leicester

We are an independent family owned and run Leicestershire Funerals Directing business. Richard Ward is a fully qualified and licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer whose unbroken career in Funeral Service began in 1982.

During his time working predominantly in senior management Richard's commitment to the families he has served has never wavered. He has never lost sight of what really matters to the bereaved family.

With this deeply held belief Richard formed the company Richard Ward Funeral Services Ltd in late 2006. He had an ambitious plan to open a family run Funeral Home headed by Richard and staffed by his Family. It is focussed on a people orientated warm and friendly approach. "We provide efficient and professional continuity of care at a fair price delivered by a company that is who and what it claims to be above the door.”

Richard, the “two Helens” and Richard’s brother Peter have over 60 years experience working as Funeral Directors in Leicester. This gives Richard Ward an un-rivalled depth of knowledge when it comes to any issue related to Funeral Service locally, nationally and internationally. The professional Funeral Service qualifications that they have between themselves in the company outweigh pro-rata to staff members any other Funeral Service provider in the county.

The Funeral Home in Enderby Leicester is prominently set in a conservation area. It is easily accessible with on street car parking usually available. The area has a quiet and quaint ambience but is just yards up from the main shopping street in Enderby.

At the time your family needs the greatest level of support and guidance our family will be there for you. With a transparent pricing policy that shows the many service options we have available we are able to cater for every type of Family Funerals whether it be a large and involved Funeral or a small and private family farewell.
