We know that organising a funeral can seem like a daunting task, especially when we find ourselves having to make difficult decisions at a time of loss and bereavement, when we feel least able to manage.
You can trust Lodge Brothers to guide you through every step of the journey. We take great pride in being able to offer a 24 hour service, 365 days a year, providing advice on what needs to be done and by whom.
With over 230 years of experience, we have encountered nearly every situation. Our full downloadable brochure has been prepared to give you an outline of the actions required by family, friends, executors and others when arranging a funeral, as well as giving you information on the wide range of services we offer.
Everyone is an individual, and there are many options available to help you create a meaningful, memorable and personal funeral day that honours the deceased.
If you prefer, our funeral arranger can visit you at home to discuss the arrangements.
1780 - The Lodge family business was started in Feltham by James Lodge.
1825 - His son William takes over the running of the business.
1870 - William passes the business on to his sons John and William. John runs the carpentry and funeral business whilst William runs the building business and farms on Spring Farm, now the site of our Head Office in Feltham.
1910 - John passes the carpentry and funeral business to his son Stanley, who later inherits the building business from his uncle William.
1941 - Stanley dies and leaves the business to his sons George and William. Shortly after the war George sells his share of the business to William.
1965 - William turns the family business into a Limited Company and gives each of his three sons, Stanley, William and John a quarter share of the business.
1967 - William retires and sells his shares to his three sons.
TODAY - The company is currently run by six members of the Lodge family (Andrew, Christopher, Michael, Beverley, Janet and Robert) who are the seventh generation of Lodge family funeral directors.
I write to say how thrilled we were at how everything went yesterday. We were so impressed with the respect and dignity that we received and the way that my beloved father was looked after. It was very moving. Special thanks to Keith who made such a special effort to put us at ease. To Tom and indeed to you, all so efficient and professional. It was faultless.
We were really pleased to see Jim (Middleton) on the day of the funeral, as he and his colleague were absolutely wonderful when they collected dad after he died at home, with us all with him. They were so kind, patient and respectful. We asked what door should they use to take dad out from, and Jim said the front door, as that was the one he came through when he arrived. We also thought the rose was a lovely gesture, that they laid on dad as they carried him out from home.
