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.

NAFD BEREAVEMENT ADVICE CENTRE

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

I just wanted to say a very big thank you to all the staff at E.J. Gumery and Son for the excellent way you conducted the funeral arrangements. Right from our first phone call through to the day of the Funeral everything was conducted in a very professional manner, myself and the family were always kept informed on what was happening, the staff were so friendly and courteous.  From myself, and the family a very big thankyou to all the staff at E.J. Gumery and Son.(May, 2019).
Many thanks for making last week go as smoothly as it can, I was very pleased and sure Mum would have been too.(April, 2019)
Just wanted to say a big thank you for yesterday. Everything went so smoothly.  (April, 2019).
Thank you for your support and kindness at the most difficult time, and for making the whole journey as easy for us as it could have been, at such an emotional time. It was really appreciated, especially the support and professionalism we had on the day of the funeral.  With many thanks.  (April, 2019).
Thank you so much again for enabling us all to experience a beautiful service for my Father. It was very reassuring for my Mother, Brother and myself to have you all supporting us so well and so professionally.  My Father would have approved of everything.  With grateful thanks again.  (March, 2019).
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)
Thank you for your kindness and superb service in dealing with my mother and my father this year. Both my parents believed in supporting local businesses and hence our choice.  I would recommend your services to anyone who asked.  (March, 2019)
Thank you so very much for all the arrangements you made for the service. I could not have asked for better.  From the moment I met you, nothing was too much trouble and I appreciate everything you did.  Please thank all your colleagues.  I certainly made the right choice.  (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)

I write to thank you personally for conducting my Mother’s funeral yesterday. It was exactly as she would have wished.  Your calm and easy manner did much to keep everyone at ease and the whole procedure was diginified, efficient and very professional.  The service itself had exactly the right note and had a warmth not usually expected at funerals.  Very appropriate for those who knew my Mother.  Thank you again for arranging things so well.  (January, 2019)

The funeral was everything I hoped for him. The service was beautiful and all my family and friends said what a unique gift to make it feel so personal.  Although it was a very sad occasion I did feel great comfort in how it was made to feel a celebration of life.  (April, 2018)
On behalf of the family I would like to say a very big thank you for all the arrangements provided for the funeral of my late father. Everyone has treated us with respect, professionalism & kindness at all times and showed Dad dignity, tending to his body, making him look smart – as he always liked to be, when he could no longer do it for himself.  Every step of the way you have maintained such high standards, thank you sounds hardly adequate to show our appreciation for the care and compassion you have shown to us all.  Your help and reliability all the way through eased the process for us and made the day of the funeral somehow easier to bear.  (April, 2018)
Thank you for the arrangements for my husband’s funeral. From the first point of contact until we were dropped off at the racecourse everything was dealt with efficiently, respectfully and with care.  This has been much appreciated.  So a big thank you to everyone at Gumery’s.  (April, 2018)
