Welcome to E.J. Gumery & Son

E J Gumery and Son are proud to have served the City of Worcester and surrounding areas for 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.


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

Thank you very much for the wonderful funeral organised for Mum.  I would also like to say when we spoke over the phone and you took me through the process, you explained everything so well that it took away any worries I had.  Thank you for looking after Mum while she was with you.  (June, 2020)
On behalf of my siblings, partners and myself, I would like to say thank you for the professional and sympathetic way you and your colleagues handled our Mother's funeral yesterday.  In these difficult times you made it as normal and bearable as possible.  Also, many thanks for the help you personally have given me in making the arrangements and handling all the paperwork.  (March, 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)
I would like to thank everyone involved at E J Gumery for the fantastic service and care provided for my Dad.  Nothing was too much trouble and you made us feel at ease through the whole process..... You made his send off that little bit more special to us!  (November, 2020)
I am writing to say an enormous thank you for looking after Mum (and me!) over the last three weeks.  The funeral was lovely in spite of the rain and everyone was impressed with what you and the Celebrant did to make everything run smoothly.  Her friends said that she would have enjoyed the funeral.  I like to think so!  Anyway, you all do a great job.  Very dignified, professional and human.  Thank you again.  (June, 2020)
Thank you for your care and attention to us with the funeral arrangements of my sister.  It was much appreciated at this difficult time.  (December, 2020).
I want to thank you, and everyone else who contributed, for looking after all of my Father's funeral arrangements so well.  The family were comforted and reassured by the excellent way you handled everything.  (March, 2021).

My Sister and I would like to take the opportunity to thank you and the staff at Gumery's for your help with the funeral arrangements.  You were not only thoroughly professional but also unfailingly patient and kind.  This was most appreciated at the most difficult of times.  (June,2020)
A huge thank you to you and all the team for your help, support and a friendly environment to come to for Dad and Mum.  Your professionalism and consideration for your clients is to be recommended.  I know now why Mum always said, 'when I die I am going to Gumery's'.  You all took the pain and stress out of a very difficult time in our lives, but we were lucky being able to come in and talk about Dad as if he was still here and remember the fun times over the years.  He would be smiling and laughing with us.  (September, 2020).
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).
Please accept my sincere gratitude for a wonderful service and all your support to me and the children.  I cannot thank you enough.  (December, 2020)
I would like to thank you on behalf of all the family, for the service you have given our Mother.  You have made what is a very difficult time, a little easier. (June, 2020).
Thank you from all of the family for everything you have done to make today happen, also making it run so smoothly with no hitch whatsoever.  Little things make a difference, like stopping on the way into the crematorium and walking in front of the car.  Thank you again.  (February, 2021)
On behalf of the family, I just wanted to thank you for all your efforts in arranging Mum's funeral.  It could not have gone more perfectly - and that is largely down to the professionalism of you and your colleagues.  It is very much appreciated.  (May, 2021)
I would like to thank you for the way in which you handled my Mother's funeral and for the care and dignity you showed throughout the service.  (June, 2021)

I just wanted to thank you and all your colleagues at Gumery & Son for all you did for me in helping to organise my late Father's funeral.  Your professionalism, attention to detail and the level of respect your staff showed was so very much appreciated.  Everything was handled with such dignity and in particular when I came to visit Dad in the Chapel of Rest he looked so peaceful and smart in his uniform, thank you for taking such care of him.  (February, 2021).
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and your colleagues at Gumery's for your help and support at such a difficult time.  Under the current circumstances, especially, it has meant a lot to have a friendly voice on the end of the phone.  You have all made a stressful task so much easier and we have felt reassured by your professionalism and approachability throughout.  Again, many thanks from all the family.  (January, 2021).

To Everyone at Gumery's, on behalf of my family and especially my Mother, I would like to say a big thank you for taking care of my Dad's funeral arrangements.  Mum and I were particularly grateful to the Funeral Director who came out late at night, he was so tactful and understanding, and explained carefully to us what needed to be done and continued to be a friendly face on and off, right up until the day of the funeral.  Also, many thanks to your Receptionist who was an enormous support when we came to see Dad at the Chapel.  I don't think she could have done her job any better.  I realise there are bound to be many more people who were involved during the whole process and I'd like them to know we are grateful for the work they do.  Obviously I will recommend Gumery's to anyone else.  Many, many thanks.  (October, 2020)
