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 ahead and make financial provision for your funeral.


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

We would like to thank you for the kindness and compassion you showed us all the way through.  (March, 2023)

May we say a heartfelt thanks to E J Gumery & Son for arranging Mum's funeral and allowing us to celebrate her life in the way we had hoped to.  From the initial call on the morning of Mum's passing, her collection, through to the meeting to discuss the arrangements and ultimately her funeral, where she left from home, we received what we can only describe as a personal service second to none, and all our wishes were fulfilled.  Everyone at EJG treated Mum with such dignity and the empathy we received tempered with the appropriate level of professionalism; meant we felt reassured and guided throughout, for which we are truly grateful.  Our thanks again.  (January, 2023).
