Caring and experienced family funeral directors.
Our staff are specifically trained in all aspects of the funeral business and we pride ourselves in our professionalism and empathic approach to bereavement.
Ian-Taylor Rowlands has been in the funeral industry since the age of 16. He has an extensive knowledge of the trade and is a fully qualified Funeral Director. He is currently the only funeral director in Weston-super-Mare of this status.
All of our team have many years of experience and we are all here to support you and ensure you receive the most caring and professional service. We will discuss with you the various choices available and then discreetly manage all of the funeral arrangements, taking as much pressure off you as we can at this difficult time.
The Elms Funeral Directors has a long standing history of providing a first class family funeral care service in Weston-super-Mare and the surrounding areas. Brian Cook started the Elms Funeral Directors in 1991 having bought 50 Baker Street which is still our current office. He was joined by Malcolm Rowlands in 1998 and they continue as a successful family business. Luke Reynolds, Brian’s Grandson, has been involved with the Elms Funeral Directors since 2016 and is now a permanent member of the Company. Luke has recently passed his National Association of Funeral Directors, Funeral Arranging Course which now makes him a qualified funeral arranger. He will continue with his education and hope to gain his Funeral Directors Qualification in due course.
