At William Mitchell, we understand that saying goodbye to a loved one at a Funeral can be daunting. But we also understand that every life is made up of many moments, including lots of “hellos”, plenty of “goodbyes”, and everything in between. Our family business is dedicated to helping your family; helping by delivering the level of personal service you need during what can be a very distressing time.
We understand that a loved one’s passing may be sudden or may well be anticipated but few are truly ever prepared for. By listening to you and guiding you gently through the process, together we build a personal service befitting the life we are honouring. We promise to listen to you and to be a guide through the hardest times.
Why William Mitchell?
We work tirelessly to ensure that the Funeral of your loved one is a fitting tribute to them and reflects your needs. Our team has many years of experience to provide as much or as little input into the service and related items as you wish. We understand that sometimes you may just need somebody to talk to. As an independent Funeral Director, we also aim to provide you the best value and a tailored package that fits your needs.
Services we offer
Losing a son at 29 is something you do not prepare yourself for . The thought of planning my son's Funeral seemed like a nightmare , Donna and her team made this job a lot easier . I first phoned William Mitchell for some advice on a situation that had came up before my son's Funeral was planned .
Although his Funeral was not yet booked with William Mitchell, Donna took it up on her self at 8pm on the night to do all she could to help . From the very first phone call, I knew that her care and compassion was everything myself and my family needed at such a difficult time . Donna has a kind , calming and reassuring nature about herself. She gives honest advice and puts the welfare of not only my son but also my family first . During the 3 weeks my son was with William Mitchell, I don’t think there was a day that passed by were Donna didn’t ring to check in on our family, and to organise things that we hadn’t got round to doing or just to give us the reassurance that our loved one was being taken care of .

William Mitchell, where do I start? Losing a brother is something that was never expected or planned. With a broken Mum to look after I solely relied on Donna and her team to help plan a beautiful send off for my beautiful brother, which it was .
From the first time I spoke to Donna I knew how serious she took her job, everything she did was done with care and perfection . There wasn’t a day that passed by where we didn’t receive a phone call checking on how my mum was . Your love towards your job inspires me, you are what can only be described as one in a million .
I was able to sleep easier at night knowing my brother was in the loving home of William Mitchell . Not at any time during planning the Funeral did my mum have to worry about anything as all that worry was taken off our hands by Donna's organisation. (more…)
Mom passed away in March and Donna and her team were recommended to us. I am so pleased they were as I could not have gone through the Funeral without them. Their friendliness and thoughtfulness were invaluable. Their premises have a lovely relaxing feel which makes a difficult event more bearable and the Chapel of Rest is a fitting resting place for your loved one. Donna and her team looked after Mom for me and sitting with Mom in the Chapel of Rest was comforting. They are a very friendly, caring, professional unit and so pleased that you were there to look after Mom for me. Mom would have loved you. Thank you so much.
We originally chose William Mitchells as they have their own Chapel of Rest, because it was important to us that Dad was looked after and treated with the respect he deserved and now we cannot think of any reason why not to choose them. Donna and her team were wonderful from our first meeting, during the Funeral and beyond. It was comforting to know that everything was being taken care of during this very difficult time. Father Barry who conducted the service was a delight and both he and Donna made sure that everything we had requested was taken care of. We would highly recommend William Mitchell to everyone.
