No Fuss Funerals to Ceremonial Funerals

Independent Funeral Director, helping families in London & Surrey

To be faced with planning a funeral – whether a death is expected or not – can feel overwhelming. Where do you start?

We are independent funeral directors helping families across London and Surrey. It is our modern approach to funerals that families find refreshing.

Whether it’s a quiet, no-fuss farewell or for a sense of ceremony and occasion, we help you to make informed choices to reflect a life lived – or the wishes that may have been left.

You may already have ideas that you want help with. Or, feel too numb to think. The first step is to contact us – we’re here to help.

We’re here to help – please get in touch. Call 020 3281 1045.

A calm voice when you need it

We are here to listen. As an independent funeral director, you will always know who you are talking with, either: Nick, Jacqui, Holly or Sabrina.

You will have continuity from the first call you make, to our presence on the day of the funeral.

We know that we cannot make your sense of loss better, but we can help to make the planning and organisation of the funeral a little easier.

White Rose consistently exceeded my expectations. They took the time to really get to know me and, more importantly, Christine. This enabled them to give me advice that really helped to make the funeral as perfect as I could have hoped.

How we can talk with you

London is a global community, so it is quite rare for families to live closely in neighbourhoods. We can help to organise a funeral however suits you best and often help families who are not all residing in the UK.

  • In person: at our relaxed meeting room in Teddington or lovely shop in Church Street, Twickenham.
  • Zoom video call: when families live in different locations locally, nationally, globally
  • Phone: in particular with simple funerals, it is easy to organise everything over the phone
  • Home meeting: by arrangement when local and a family member is less able

Our flexibility and how we communicate with you throughout means you are always fully informed throughout each step – please read our reviews.

Feedback from families we have helped

Five stars

White Rose did an outstanding job of organising and overseeing my father’s funeral. Nothing was too much trouble and all the details were perfectly managed throughout. They were thoughtful and sensitive and always struck the right tone. On the day, it all went like clockwork.

Sarah Pittam

Five stars

I knew from the very first contact with White Rose that they would be the ones. They took the time to understand the situation, they responded to all our needs and suggestions and provided a service which was far beyond our expectations – courteous, flexible, unobtrusive and kind.

Colin Wise

Five stars

Guided us through every step of the way from the moment we contacted them with amazing communication. We didn’t know where to start and they were so careful in explaining and helping us through as it is quite a minefield if you’ve never organised a funeral before.
