From 19th July 2021 all restrictions on attendance at funeral services are set to be eased. It is up to the individual if they would like to continue wearing a face mask in public places. When attending our offices we will not be offended if you would prefer to wear a mask and don't hesitate to ask us to do the same. We intend to continue our regime of cleaning our premises on a regular basis to keep ourselves and the families we are helping safe. We would respectfully ask that if you are feeling unwell or displaying any of the symptoms of the virus (high fever, cough, shortness of breath) that you refrain from visiting our offices and that you seek guidance from your GP or dial 111. We will endeavour in such circumstances to deal with matters via telephone, email, or by Zoom/Facetime.
Nick & Louise Tredwin
H Tredwin & Son Ltd, Funeral Directors - an independent family owned and run business.
H Tredwin & Son was founded in 1860 by Harold Tredwin and has continued to help the bereaved and provide a caring, dignified and professional service for over 150 years. Originally builders and funeral directors - the company still offers handmade coffins reflecting the practical skills passed down through the generations.
The company is now in its fifth generation run by Nick Tredwin and his wife Louise who provide a personal service with the emphasis on family values. Their sons Harry and Timmy have both worked in the business and their daughter Kitty is on hand to help as she has a flower studio at the premises in Sampford Arundel. They, like Nick, have grown up knowing the importance of the work the family do. Nick's father, Francis, taught him the trade and they worked together for many years before he passed away in 2006. He was a hard act to follow. Nick's formal training was done through the NAFD (National Association of Funeral Directors).
Nick & Louise are able to arrange a service to suit the individual of any denomination or a non-religious service.
Our profession is steeped in tradition but we move with the times and are able to offer a modern approach when required.
We offer 24 hour assistance, 365 days a year. We have our own chapel of rest which is set in beautiful surroundings and also spacious offices in the centre of Wellington. Families are welcome to visit our office to make arrangements but we are also happy to visit you in your own home to discuss your wishes.
"We feel extremely privileged to be able to run our own business and deal with the bereaved and the deceased on a very personal level. We can offer this special caring service to every family as we are a small, independent establishment. We will guide you through every difficult step regarding funeral arrangements, hopefully helping to ease the pain and take some of the worry away at this difficult time."
Grief never ends....
but it changes.
It's a passage, not a place to stay.
Grief is not a sign of weakness,
Nor a lack of faith.... it is the price of love.
