Funeral Directors in Wantage

Edward Carter - Funeral Directors in WantageOxfordshire Funeral Directors, Edward Carter, are proud to announce the opening of a new premises in Wantage.

The new premises at 15 Newbury Street, will run hand in hand with their existing Abingdon business, with funerals arranged and directed by Paul and Nigel Carter, the second and third generation of the Carter family to serve the local community.

Nigel Carter said “In many ways this is a homecoming for our family, as my great grandparents, owned and ran Lloyds bakery on the square for many years, so our family have always maintained its connection to the Wantage area”.

Paul said “We have noticed an increasing number of Wantage families using our services, many of whom are commenting about their wish to use a well established family run funeral directors”.

As national chains continue to buy out independent firms, these choices become less available for families. With many of these big national chains still trading under their old family names it can be confusing for families as to who they are actually asking to carry out their instructions. This can mean a number of things, including a more costly service, a less personal touch and corporate restraints on time and services on offer.

Edward Carter’s provide people with the security of knowing that everything will be taken care of at a time when they need comfort and reassurance.
