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 downloadable Funeral Guide 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 am very happy and couldn’t be more appreciative of everything, from the visit by your pre-paid plans team, to the funeral arrangements and the funeral itself, and also the chat I had with Sophie your solicitor. Everything was excellent and the staff and the funeral were wonderful.
May I thank you for organising such a lovely and appropriate service at such short notice, we are all very cognisant of your input to make it seem so effortless. Colin appeared to have known W*** all his life which helped to make it feel both personal and intimate.
