For anyone facing the prospect of arranging a funeral, T.A. Ellement is on hand at all times to help you on every step of what is an unquestionably difficult journey.

T.A. Ellement has been Watford’s leading funeral director for more than a century. Now owned by the Carnague family, we have more than 135 years’ experience in conducting funeral services of distinction.

We believe the funeral itself should reflect and respect the wishes of your loved one, and we aim to honour all requests and pre-arranged plans. No detail is overlooked and nothing is too much trouble for our dedicated staff members.

Comprehensive Funeral Services

As an independent, family run funeral directors in Watford, T.A. Ellement believes in delivering a highly personal service and we are here to assist with every aspect. From flowers and cars to notices and memorials, our considerate and dedicated staff are more than willing to help.

For funeral services across Watford and beyond our reputation for customer care and commitment is unrivalled.

Coffins and Caskets in Watford

Making decisions that relate to a loved one’s final resting place, can be difficult, that is why T.A. Ellement staff are always ready to support, explain and guide when it comes to choosing such things as a coffin or casket.

Our selection includes the traditional solid wood and veneer or, for more of an environmentally aware service, you may opt for willow, bamboo or even a biodegradable material.

In order to give you time to consider the best option for your loved one, we provide a range of brochures so you can consult other family members involved in making such a decision.

Woodland Burials in Watford

Natural burials are growing in popularity and T.A. Ellement can talk you through the arrangements, as well as a selection of local natural resting places.

With more than 135 years’ of experience as funeral directors, the T.A. Ellement staff can arrange a beautiful funeral in woodland or designated natural burial site within the local area.

We can supply a choice of eco-friendly coffins and can ensure the service itself is exactly as you or your loved one envisaged.

Following a cremation we can also organise for the ashes to be placed into a bamboo or willow urn before being interred in a woodland site.

Chapel of Rest in Watford

Following a loved one’s passing it may be some time before the funeral service can take place. At T.A. Ellement we offer a Chapel of Rest, where family members and other visitors can spend a few moments paying their respects. The chapel has no religious affinity but is a place of peace and tranquillity, where you can say goodbye.

Our friendly staff can help co-ordinate visits to ensure you spend as much time with your loved one as you need in the calmness of our private chapel.

Memorials in Watford

Once the service itself is complete, T.A Ellement’s bespoke funeral service carries on, and we are here to offer expertise regarding memorials, headstones or tablets to mark their place of rest.

Our funeral directors can organise a memorial service to mark the scattering of the ashes or even a post-funeral ceremony to celebrate a life well lived.

Please feel free to talk to us about your plans and requests. We have a vast amount of understanding as funeral directors and are pleased to be of assistance wherever we can. 

Direct Cremation

Do you want an alternative funeral plan? We offer direct cremation services throughout Watford. Direct cremation means your body is entrusted to our care when you pass away. We then arrange a private cremation, only attended by officials. This option is a suitable choice for those who would rather not have a formal service.

We also offer a vast choice of funeral cars and transportation, including a traditional horse-drawn hearse. You can view the range beforehand or ask us to provide any vehicle type you may require.
