Throughout the past 130 years five generations of the Uden family have been providing help and assistance to bereaved families in this area.

Established by William (Walter) Uden in 1881, we now have premises throughout South East London and Kent. Many of our staff have been with us for all their working life, whilst new members are trained in the traditional values that have served us well for the last century.

Each of our branches is under the care of a “Mr. Uden” and whenever possible one of them will arrange or be present at the funeral to ensure our high standards of quality and service are maintained.

Currently seven family members are actively engaged in the business: “Father of the Firm” David Uden, Managing Director, Nicholas Uden, Andrew Uden, Michael Uden, Jason Uden, Matthew Uden, and our latest family member to join the firm, Charlie Uden.  All are actively involved in arranging and directing funeral services, ensuring our high standards of personal service and client satisfaction are constantly maintained.

Our experienced and dedicated family and staff are available 24 hours a day to assist and advise you, whilst a member of the company will readily visit you in the privacy of your own home to discuss your needs and the wishes of the deceased.

The current managing director, Mr. Nicholas Uden, believes that our quality and service is what sets us apart from other Funeral Directors. He says “all funeral requirements are different and we strive to respond to the wishes of every family by arranging the most appropriate service relevant to their personal or financial circumstances. Our aim is to support the bereaved family throughout this sad time and to leave a lasting memory of your loved one for those who remain behind”.

Being a family business it is good to know whatever the problem big or small there is always a “MR. UDEN “to speak to.
