A Message from Nicholas Tonks


Thank you for visiting our website.  As managing director and lead funeral director of Jerrams Brothers I am proud of both our reputation and of the quality service we offer, which I believe is second to none.

Both my grand father and father spent their careers in the family business and so Jerrams Brothers is both professionally important to me but also personally important to me.  For this reason I constantly strive to deliver a service to families which I think and hope they find of a very high standard.

Our company motto is “Safe in our hands” and we really believe this.  It refers not only to your loved one, who we will look after with dignity and respect, but also to the family who are left to make all the arrangements.  Part of “safe in our hands” depends on the staff and colleagues who support me.

Ready to Help

I think you will find that, without exception, the staff at Jerrams Brothers are courteous, skilled and always ready to help.

Should you have any questions about the material on the website please feel free to make contact with either myself or one of my colleagues at Jerrams Brothers.

To give you an idea of how families who have used Jerrams Brothers feel about our services we have included a testimonial page on our website and I encourage you to read some of the comments we have received from families we have served. We also have a brochure you might wish to look at which gives more information on our company and our services.
