    Established in 1885, the company still operates from the same premises in Bedford Road, Rushden, but over the years these have been altered and refurbished to take account of today's needs. In fact the company holds a Northamptonshire Business Environment Award for structural improvements, which allows for disabled access to all public areas. The company has private chapels of rest, a service chapel is providing a particularly useful service for the public as it allows both religious and non-religious services to take place locally.

    An additional Chapel of Rest has now been opened at Ringstead. This will enable families in the Ringstead area (Raunds / Thrapston / the Addingtons etc.) access to a beautiful private chapel of rest.

    Funeral Directors are Michael Hart-Abbott A.C.I.B. Mr Jonathan L Hart-Abbott Dip.F.D. and now funeral arranging Beverley Sanders and Alison Hart-Abbott. Following a very careful study of Funeral vehicles in 2006 the decision was made to switch the fleet of cars to Mercedes. The new E Class stretch limousine providing benefits in passenger space, safety features and represents the traditional values established over over 100 years. See Pictures. The fleet has now changed over and the Mercedes cars have been a great sucess.

    Our services are further enhanced by our floral advisers, Vicki & Tracey.

    Our catering services were first inspected by East Northants Council and awarded the maximum 5 STARS .This was a new system of inspection.

    Our catering team will be happy to serve you either in our air-conditioned catering suite or at your home / venue. Our facilities are inspected on a regular basis and we continue to hold the maximum 5 Star award.

    The Finedon Chapel of Rest was opened February, 2008 and located at Milner Road Finedon.

    These two developments will enable families to have their loved ones that little bit closer to home.

    in 2015 the catering / service room at Rushden was renamed "The Asher Room" in memory of Mr Asher Abbott the founder of the company back in 1885. A new canopy over the entrance to the room made locating the room so much easier for the bereaved.

    Our service now include "Direct Cremation" and "Simplified Cremation" fix price packages.

    Following the recent announcement of the CMA review of funeral prices we have looked at our Standardised Price List and Additional Options Price List to ensure that our funeral costs are as clear as possible. I would welcome any feedback.
