Our Ethos

As an independent funeral director TW Birks & Son cares deeply about providing our families with a high quality, dignified and affordable funeral service. We pride ourselves on the meticulous and personal attention we give to every family at their time of need.

We are here to take the weight off your shoulders and help you arrange a unique and meaningful funeral tailored to your customs, needs and budget.


Our Community

We know and appreciate local customs and expectations, because we have served the community for years. Our neighbourhood is your neighbourhood, so we take great pride in our funeral homes, vehicles and staff.

We have a long-term commitment to our community. This is where we live and work. It is where we plan to stay. When you need us, we will be here.

In turn, we have a strong ethos that we should give back to our local community. We support many local charities and community organisations.


Charitable Work

As a local business we try and give back to our local community as much as we can. We regularly support our local churches, sports teams, community groups and community events.

We annually hold a staff bowls event to raise money for Help for Heroes and collect money for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.

We also facilitate the giving of donations totalling thousands of pounds annually to many local and national charities through our funeral collections in lieu of flowers.
