Situated opposite the ancient church of St John the Baptist (c1100), A.V. Smith & Sons Funeral Directors was established around the turn of the 20th Century, and the family ran the business from here for at least 3 generations.
The building is an integral part of the old ‘Hillingdon Village’ and was once the premises of the village builder and carpenter.
In 1976 the business was sold to Lodge Brothers, the seventh generation family of funeral directors founded by James Lodge in Feltham in 1780.
We know that organising a funeral can seem like a daunting task, especially when we find ourselves having to make difficult decisions at a time of loss and bereavement, when we feel least able to manage.
You can trust A.V. Smith & Sons to guide you through every step of the journey. We take great pride in being able to offer a 24-hour service, 365 days a year, providing advice on what needs to be done and by whom.
As part of the Lodge Brothers family with over 230 years of experience, we have encountered nearly every situation. Our full downloadable ‘Guide to Arranging A Funeral’ has been prepared to give you an outline of the actions required by executors and others when planning a funeral, as well as giving you information on the wide range of services we offer.
Everyone is an individual, and there are many options available to help you create a meaningful, memorable and personal funeral day that honours the deceased.
If you prefer, our funeral arranger can visit you at home to discuss the arrangements.
Thank you for the excellent service, as always, that you all provided for the funeral ceremony. I used your services for my wife 17 years ago and for my father many years before that.
Just to say that my brother’s funeral was perfect. Jennifer the celebrant gave an excellent service and your gentlemen were outstanding. My sister-in-law was thrilled with such a perfect send-off for my brother.
Thank you and all of your colleagues for your help, support and patience it has made a world of difference to all of us.
