F.P Guiver & Sons Ltd remains one of the few family owned Independent Funeral Directors in the Southend-on-Sea Borough. We were established around 1900 by Frederick Parker Guiver.
Our main office is in Southchurch Road, Southend on Sea where we’ve been since the late 1920’s. We also have another office in Rayleigh Road, Eastwood, Leigh-on-Sea.
Southend has a Crematorium in Sutton Road, Southend, which has two service chapels – one seating 100 and the other seating 45 – both with room for some standing. Both chapels have the use of the Wesley music system which has a vast library of music to choose from in addition to the use of an organ with organist supplied by the crematorium.
Southend’s main Cemetery is Sutton Road Cemetery and still has available space for new burials. It has a service Chapel seating approximately 35 and the use of an Organ with Organist supplied by the Cemetery authority. The Cemetery is situated opposite Southend Crematorium. We would normally liaise with the crematorium and cemetery authority on your behalf when arranging for cremations and burials to take place.
As an independent company, we have the flexibility to be more personal and bespoke. We arrange funerals of all religious denominations and non-religious, too.
We also liaise with Southend’s foreshore office to accommodate scatterings of ashes from Southend Pier.
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?
