The Farrer family has been in the funeral profession since 1860.

Initially this was in the east end of London (North Woolwich, East Ham and Silvertown) and these offices were run firstly by our Great Great Grandfather Samuel J Farrer, then by our Great Grandfather Albert E Farrer. Read more.

In 2006, we opened a new funeral home in Shenfield after many years of conducting funeral services in the area from our Billericay premises. This was to be able to be closer to the people of the Hutton and Shenfield area.
