We were delighted to open our Funeral Home at Norwich Road, East Dereham in 2015 as we have cared for families in the Dereham and surrounding areas for over 50 years from our Costessey Funeral Home in Norwich. In 2013, an opportunity arose for us to acquire suitable premises in Dereham for conversion to a modern Funeral Home. We were delighted to take this opportunity to serve our existing and future clients much nearer to their homes. The former showroom of “Norwich Road Garage” provided a large floor space on one level in an easily accessible position with onsite car parking. A programme of refurbishment and alteration followed, this involved separation from “NRG” and the creation of a modern fully equipped Funeral Home including a welcoming Reception area, Arrangement room, Quiet area and Chapel of Rest, together with the appropriate and essential facilities.
We believe in investment in the behind the scenes areas of our funeral homes. This investment has ensured, as in all our premises, we are equipped and finished to the same high standards as the public rooms and in consequence we can care for the deceased as families would if they could.
Aletia Parker was appointed as the Funeral Arranger. This appointment was particularly pleasing to us as Aletia’s mum, Janet, had been a very important and much loved Funeral Arranger with us in our Costessey Funeral Home for some 20 years before her retirement.

We have purposely designed our premises to be welcoming and comforting to our visitors. Our services are available at all times throughout the year. Caring for the deceased is paramount and in consequence we have finely equipped facilities to care for them as you would if you could. Visiting our chapels is available by appointment 24 hours a day 365 days a year. Arrangements can be made in our funeral homes or in your own home if you wish.
All premises are in accessible positions, on main roads, with car parking and easy access by public transport.
