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.
