Welcome to Benedict Funeral Directors, a genuine independent and family run funeral company. We are pleased to provide undertaker services for the residents of Bedford and the surrounding area.
We are here to help and advise
Being a family run Undertakers brings certain advantages with it, namely you are assured of our personal touch; total respect, honesty and compassion. Part of that respect is to let you know your options; funerals are one off events and they can be relatively simple or fairly extravagant.
At Benedict Funerals, our promise to you is one of honesty. We will tell you the truth about what your options are. Be assured no matter what you choose, be it simple or extravagant, our respect to you and your loved one will not change, it’s what makes us who we are.
Bedford Funeral Options
The residents of Bedford and surrounding areas such as Shortstown, Elstow, Cardington, Bromham, and Clapham are usually served by Bedford Crematorium. Bedford Crematorium is located at 104 Norse Road, Bedford, MK41 0RL. It is ideal for families affording a slightly larger facility than Luton Crematorium.
Of course cremation is not the only option; there are different cemeteries available for burial (as opposed to being cremated). Benedict funeral Directors are more than happy to discuss this with you. Bedford offers burials at Norse Road Cemetery and this cemetery also offers woodland burials. The Foster Hill Road Cemetery offers second interments and burial of cremated remains. Foster Hill Road cemetery is designed in a Victorian style and boast a lovely Victorian style chapel.
