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.
We just wanted to write and thank you for arranging S’s funeral. It was a thoroughly professional job and well executed as always. The Order of Service Sue arranged was beautiful. Will you also please pass on our thanks to James, the Conductor, he was so courteous, kind and explained everything that was occurring. Also the motor bike rider – it was lovely to have the same gentleman that drove Dad.
Throughout we were treated with kindness and dignity which, at a very sad time, is comforting. This was the fifth funeral you have arranged for our family. We would have no hesitation in recommending you as a wonderfully caring, professional company.
I just wanted to say that you made everything perfect for T’s funeral. Everything was absolutely beautiful, and so many of our friends commented on it. Martin the celebrant was a perfect choice for us and his service was perfect. The men on the day were brilliant, really lovely people. I couldn’t be more pleased I had 5 star treatment throughout and a 5 star funeral.
Thank you so very much.
