Caring and Professional

Arranging a funeral can be a distressing experience, and at Padfields Funeral Service we are committed to helping you through the whole grieving process of which the funeral is only the beginning.

Based in Barnstaple, we have helped with funeral preparations for the people of North Devon for over 90 years. 

We make sure to look after our families during their difficult time, working closely with them to ensure that their needs are met at all times.

Let our family care for
your family

We understand how important it is to give your loved one the funeral they would desire, which is why we ensure every aspect of the funeral is to your exact requirements. Pre-arrangement funeral plans are also available for your convenience. 

We're happy to arrange for you to come and spend the time you need with your departed loved ones in our private chapel of rest, allowing you that final chance to make peace with their passing.
