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.

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)
