Welcome to F P Guiver & Sons


We would like to reassure our clients that we have procedures in place should COVID-19 become widespread to protect our clients, their loved ones and our staff and continue providing our services to the community.

Our offices currently remain open; However, we are encouraging clients not to attend our office and have procedures in place to arrange funerals via the telephone and email.

We are here to assist you and will always work with our clients to be as flexible as possible in this constantly evolving situation.

Please do not be offended if our staff do not offer to shake your hand as they have been instructed not to do so.

As more information becomes available from our trade associations, local and central government we will update our policies.

F.P Guiver & Sons Ltd was established around 1900 by Frederick Parker Guiver, and remains one of the few family owned Independent Funeral Directors in the Southend-on-Sea Borough.

We have been at 641 Southchurch Road, Southend on Sea, SS1 2PN since the late 1920’s, generating a wealth of experience in local knowledge and traditions. In recent times we have been privileged to extend our services to a wider community and have such taken the decision to make ourselves more accessible by opening additional offices with a full range of services available at 416 Rayleigh Road, Eastwood, Leigh on Sea SS9 5PT and 52 Ashingdon Road, Rochford SS4 1RD.

Being independent gives us the flexibility to give a more personal and bespoke service arranging funerals of all religious denominations or non-religious funerals.

F.P. Guiver & Sons are long standing members of the National Association of Funeral Directors and the National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors and adhere to both Codes of Practice.

We also offer Golden Charter Funeral Plans which have proven to be a great help to bereaved families at the time of need. Why not call in or contact us for a free brochure without obligation?
