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.
A short note to thank you for your kindness, help and support during a very difficult time for us. Please also thank your co-workers, the phone call the evening before the funeral was very thoughtful and reassuring. The cars were immaculate and the guys were very helpful and considerate on the day. The coffin looked beautiful and we were all pleased with how the day went.
Thank you for all you have done for my brother and I in the organising of the funeral for our uncle Peter, the whole day was organised very professionally and all your staff were so friendly and helpful. Many thanks from my Brother and I.
