Cornwall Funeral Directors: a Directory of Family Undertakers.
Funeral directors in Cornwall are mainly run by major chains. If you would prefer to deal with a real family firm of funeral directors, rather than a chain disguised as one, read on. The folk below are we believe real Cornish funeral directors. (Back to what to do after a death.)
Probate: Don’t forget our free guides. Some of these firms may have negotiated special terms with us for their clients – ask them. You would probably get charged more for the office junior in some firms than our senior experts charges!)

www.bodminfunerals.co.uk Angus & Paula MacKinnon say: ‘THE SIMPLEST DETAILS CAN BE A BURDEN WHEN YOU’VE JUST BEEN BEREAVED’ Established in 1993 as Bodmin’s only independent funeral directors, Bodmin Funeral Services – owned and managed by Angus and Paula MacKinnon – moved to their present funeral premises at Old Wall Lodge, Castle Canyke Road in 2004.
We are proud to offer such up to date facilities to the area while still retaining the professional but personal touch we are known for. With over forty years of funeral experience we are proud to be members of The National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors.The independent funeral director has historically exemplified all that is best in the profession, personally serving his community in a dignified and sensitive manner. In recent years many old established and family-owned businesses have been taken over – mainly by the co-operative movement and public limited companies – thereby possibly affecting the personal service and costs involved. The public does not generally understand these changes and their implications as they continue to trade under the original family name.
“When a loved one has passed away, many people find it hard to cope with practical necessities. We can help. We carry out many responsibilities, from arranging funerals to organising press notices, flowers and receptions. Our family firm has carried out these and many other responsibilities for the community in and around Cornwall since 1993. Amid the confusion of bereavement, we provide calmness, order and a sense of dignity, so that life, as it must, can go on with hope for the future as well as respect for the past.”
