Clients who choose our funeral home at Aylsham Road are cared for by our funeral directors Louise, Shirley and Mark, together with support staff under the direction of our operations manager Tim Woods.

In the early days of Gordon Barber Funeral Services, Gordon had converted a modest former Methodist chapel in Swannington. After approximately three years he eventually opened our premises in Aylsham Road, Norwich formerly Castles Green Grocers.

Gordon and Elsie gave up their own home in the late 1960’s to purchase ‘Castles’, which was to become theirs and the city’s first ‘FuneralHome’. A first floor was added where they would live and work for a number of years. As the business grew the funeral home would gradually take over the whole of the premises where it continues to do so until the present day. 

We now have one of the finest funeral homes in the country fully equipped to care for our clients and their loved ones at their time of need.

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.
