We are all facing challenging times and COVID-19 has undoubtedly put
extra stress on families coping with bereavement.
We maintain strict policies regarding hygiene and safety and adhere to
government and local council guidance.
Our office is open but we arrange services by appointment only so please call
us before visiting our office. The use of face masks is mandatory in all enclosed public
spaces so we ask that you adhere to this regulation when attending our premises. We are also making arrangements using Facetime and other online applications if families find this preferable.
We are here to help 24/7 and are committed to finding safe solutions for
funeral arrangements when faced with the obstacles this terrible virus causes.
Stay safe, look after yourself, eachother and our community.
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."
The memories and love I leave behind are yours to keep.
I have found my rest; I have turned my face, and now I sleep.
