Our Story

Hello my name is Susan. I’d like to share a little about how Ellsmore Funeral Directors began. It was my own personal journey with grief and pain that led me to this profession.

In 2017 I lost both of my parents within six months of each other. My Mother Bernadette was my best friend and her passing was the hardest thing I have ever dealt with. My dad lived in Ireland so his arrangements were taken care of by other family members but I took care of my moms final journey.

Making these arrangements and going to the funeral home was extremely distressing and it felt very cold and scary. I did not understand the almost haunting environment that I found myself in.

The weeks that followed were very hard and I knew I had to do something positive with my grief. I wanted my mom to be remembered and for her to be proud of me. So I channelled everything into helping others during their journey of grief and loss.

Our funeral home is warm and inviting and our families comment, time and time again at how at ease they feel when they are with us. Our chapel of rest is named after my mother it gives me great comfort to know that her legacy is helping other families deal with their grief. I’m really proud of our small business and our team at Ellsmore’s that dedicate themselves and go over and above, to give each and every family the most dignified send off.

  • 5 star review  First time used Ellsmore and I can't recommend them enough. Wanted to use a local company and we certainly wasn't disappointed. Alison and the team were brilliant. Such kindness, no pressure to make a decision straight away and they kept us updated throughout.

  • 5 star review  I honestly can’t explain how helpful Alison and the team were. Nothing was to much trouble. At such horrible time I was made to at ease and comfortable. Having never had to anything like this before everything was explained to me in a way I wasn’t made to feel silly. Alison was there even just for a chat if I needed it. I can’t recommend this little business enough.

  • 5 star review  Alison what can i say, you are an amazing lady who showed me compassion on a different level. I rang you as a support worker and you were looking after a young man who i thought the world of. Nothing was too much trouble even when i babbled, the way you knocked the door before you took me in to say goodbye and the true love and care you had shown my young man in making him as handsome as ever. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I would recommend yourselves to anyone.

  • 5 star review  We would like to thank Ellsmore Funeral Directors for the professional service and care we received at the darkest time of our lives. We were confused, did not know what to do, but you held our hands and helped us through. Alison and Pat, what can we say! How can we thank you enough, your professionalism and comforting throughout. From the day you took our loved one in your care until to the end of the service, you did not stop! You were there to see us through, thank you and thank you again, the best service ever! God Bless You!!

Our Funeral Packages

Corporately owned funeral homes pose as a “Mom and Pop” operation, attempting to reap the goodwill developed over prior generations. More concerned with sales goals, bonuses, volume targets, and keeping shareholders happy, the corporate owned funeral home charges 30-40% more on average than its independently owned competition. Don’t expect the conglomerate owned business to advertise their affiliation or ownership out in the open.
