Welcome to E.J. Gumery & Son

E J Gumery and Son are proud to have served the City of Worcester and surrounding areas for over 150 years. Established in 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.


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


Cheques may be made payable to E J Gumery and Son Donations Account these will be forwarded to the charity at a later date.

I would like to express my thanks to you for all your help in supporting me with my Mum's funeral arrangements, as you did previously with Dad's, and guiding me through everything.  Please pass on my thanks to all of the staff for their consideration.  You were all so professional, and your kindness and empathy helped me tremendously through such a difficult time.  Many, many thanks to you all.  (April, 2021)

My Mother and I would just like to express our thanks to you all at Gumerys for the impeccable arrangements yesterday at my Father's funeral.  I am so glad that we chose you and would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone.  Your help on the music and slideshow was also vital to making things special to honour my Dad.  Thank you again.  ( February, 2021)

Thank you very much indeed for all you did to make Mum's funeral just perfect.  I couldn't have wished for better in any way.  You and your team provided the most wonderful service from beginning to end, guiding me, organising everything so professionally and discreetly and always being so sensitive during such a strange and emotional time for me.  Thank you.  (January, 2021)

I wanted to officially thank you and your team for helping my brother and I through the funeral arrangements for Dad.  You were always so respectful, attentive, helpful and knowledgeable at a difficult and sad time for us.  Thank you so much for everything and for making a difficult task so much easier.  With very best wishes.  (February, 2021).
I'm dropping you a note to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for everything you and the team at Gumery's have done over the past few weeks on behalf of my Mum and myself.

Your professionalism, expertise and attention to detail - combined with an abundance of patience, compassion and support - has been of such comfort to me during a hugely emotional time.  Your personal care, empathy and respect for Mum and her dignity was so evident from the moment we first spoke on the telephone and when you arrived shortly thereafter to move her to the Funeral Home.  You made bearable what would have otherwise been a very traumatic experience.

You have been there every step of the way from that time, in the lead up to and during the funeral and thus enabled the family to create a firm foundation for us to carry out Mum's spiritual beliefs and wishes.  You explained and handled the whole process in a way that made everything so very straight forward and simple for me to handle, especially in these unprecedented times; quite frankly, there was little to do on my part as I could be confident that you had everything under control.  A heart-felt thanks again for all you have done personally during the past month; I shall always remember your kindness.  (March, 2021)
Would just like to thank you all for your services for dad's funeral yesterday. So patient, caring and professional. It has been a seamless process for me having never organised a funeral before, so thank you so much for that. (March, 2021)

We want to say that we were all very pleased with the professionalism and empathy with which you dealt with matters in these trying times.  (March, 2021)
Thank you for the calming presence and professionalism of you and your team at my husband's funeral.  I had attended three funerals managed by Gumerys in the past few years and had no hesitancy in asking them to do the same for my husband.  With thanks.  (August, 2021).
This is a heartfelt thank you so much for looking after my Mum, you have done her proud.  You are all so nice, helpful and polite, as we all grieve.  Thank you all.  (February, 2021).
