Welcome to E.J. Gumery & Son

E J Gumery and Son have been serving the City of Worcester and the surrounding areas since 1870. We are still a family owned and managed business and we know that this will reflect in our service to you at this time.

When called upon to arrange a funeral, we take complete responsibility for all the details involved, so that relatives have no more to worry about than is absolutely necessary at this difficult time. It is for this reason our service and premises have been carefully planned to produce a combination of efficiency, immediate help and personal attention.

We are available to give personal service at any time of the day or night, at weekends and Bank Holidays. Once we have been notified of a death, everything can be left safely in our care, with the exception of registration.

Our Role as Funeral Directors

As funeral directors we will help and guide you through all the decisions which need to be made.  We will contact all parties on your behalf (ministers, cemeteries and crematoria) and provide all the staff necessary to ensure that every final detail is attended to both before, on the day and after the funeral.


Whether a person is recently bereaved, caring for someone who is dying or simply planning ahead, the NAFD Bereavement Advice Centre will help advise them on their questions and concerns. The Centre can also direct people to locally-based experts, such as bereavement counsellors and can advise what actions need to be taken when somebody dies.

They can be contacted on 0800 634 9494 from 8.00 am to 8.00 pm, Monday to Friday, or via their website www.nafd.org.uk


Plan and pay for your funeral in advance, funeral directors costs will be fixed at today’s prices.


Cheques made payable to EJ Gumery; they are then paid out to the charity later.

I just had to sit down and thank you so very much for the way the funeral was conducted yesterday. Since I first contacted you about your service, I have been met with total professionalism, sympathy and courtesy. From the first meeting I was sure the arrangements were in good hands and so it proved.  In determining the detail of the day, I was led through the process in a caring but business-like manner.  Last minute changes re cars were accommodated seamlessly and your supportive presence on the day was so welcome and very much appreciated. The success (if that’s the word to attach to a funeral) of the occasion was down – in no small part, in fact the major part – to your involvement. Once again thank you all for your help and guidance at this sad time in our lives.(March, 2019)

I am writing to thank you and the whole team at E J Gumery & Son for the caring, compassionate and careful way in which you handled all aspects of my late Mother’s funeral. From my first contact with you, in the days just before my mother died, and then all the way through the process, we felt very well supported and we knew that we were in the hands of professionals.  Your careful sensitive guidance of us through the various choices and decisions that had to be made was greatly appreciated as also was your attention to detail; no matter how small, everything was thought about and attended to. We all noted too, the reverence and respect which was accorded by all members of your staff to our mother’s coffin on the day of the funeral. Thank you for that, which I think helped us all. In conclusion E J Gumery & Son made a difficult day far easier than it could have been. We are most grateful for all your efforts. (March, 2019)
