Early last year an executive decision was made to extend our acclaimed funeral services to residents in the north of Bexley Borough.

We needed a premier location to compliment our first class vehicles and staff; somewhere just off the Broadway, near to all the major retailers. Who would have thought that a disused public toilets could be transformed from a derelict eyesore to the beautiful building that we have created!

Purchased at public auction, plans for conversion were submitted to the local authority in August last year and building work commenced in October 2011. Our contractors, Brylane Construction & AMP Electrical have retained the external footprint of the building whilst completely re-structuring the interior layout, providing tranquil offices for the benefit of our clients. Work was completed at the end of February 2012 and we have already arranged several funerals since opening our doors in March.

We have appointed Nicholas Bennett as our new branch manager. ”Nick” is a local man, born and brought up in Welling, who now lives in Bexleyheath with his wife and young family. He joined the firm in 2002 and has worked at our Sidcup branch, looking after bereaved families in that area. He therefore brings a wealth of experience to his new role and is looking forward to extending the high standards of our company to this part of the Borough.

There has been considerable interest within the local community regarding our Golden Charter prepaid funerals. If anyone would like more details, please telephone our office on 020 8303 1279 or call in when passing and talk to Nicholas who will be pleased to advise you. We can also arrange to visit you in the privacy of your own home if you prefer. A few minutes planning for the future will make everything easier for your family and loved ones when that fateful time comes.

On June 16th we are holding an open day at our Bexleyheath branch where you can visit our premises and inspect our vehicles. Also on display will be a horse drawn carriage, together with a motorcycle hearse. Members of the Uden family and staff will be available to answer any questions that you may have. Please join us between 10 am and 4pm for refreshments and a chance to meet in social circumstances rather than at a time of need.

Best wishes.
