Arthur W Mays Independent Funeral Directors have been professionally honouring the lives of the deceased in and around Westbury, Wiltshire, for more than 60 years.
For us providing emotional support, expert advice and practical assistance to those who have lost their loved ones is a vocation combined with an essential trade. We understand that we play a vital role in local society, and we strive to play it competently with dignity, respect, compassion and efficiency.
The main service we provide is arranging a funeral for your loved one according to the dictates of your faith or culture, and your personal, individual wishes. We handle everything whether you choose a traditional burial, crematorium ceremony, or a memorial life celebration.
We arrange transport of the deceased to our funeral home; provide for viewing in the chapel of rest if desired; fully organise and manage a bespoke funeral event and complete the paperwork involved; and oversee the installation of memorials and tributes.
Beyond the practicalities, though, our consultants step in to become your trustworthy counsellor and aide during what is a very difficult time. We have the local knowledge and expertise to dispense advice, make suggestions, answer questions and guide you through the complicated process of dealing with a death.
We know that you and your family would like to make the farewell to your loved one as special as possible within the available budget, and we work with you to achieve this. After consulting with you and planning the funeral you’ll receive a fully costed estimate covering all the details and disbursements.
We can advise on the availability of state death benefits and grants from the Social Fund.
If you want to avoid having to spring the cost of a funeral on your family we offer a selection of pre-paid funeral plans so that you can pay off the costs and organise your own funeral arrangements in advance.
