Gordon Barber Funeral Directors are here to support you if a loved one has just passed away and you need help arranging the funeral. We offer a range of funerals to suit your needs. You can find out more below or give us a call to discuss.
Welcome to Gordon Barber Funeral Directors on Aylsham Road in Norwich, the city’s first funeral home. Established in 1960’s, we will use the knowledge that we have built up over the years to help you arrange the funeral service you want for your loved one.
Gordon and his wife Elsie, gave up their family home to purchase Castles greengrocers, which they then converted into a Funeral Directors. Today, the third generation of the Barber family is still involved in helping families during their time of need, helping us to provide you with the highest standards of funeral care in the city. It was Gordon's wish to provide a service delivered with care, compassion and sensitivity to the people of Norwich and the surrounding areas. Which we continue to do today.
We understand that losing someone you love is never easy, which is why we are here to give you all of the support you need and help arrange a personal farewell for your loved one. We want the service to be exactly as you imagine, and we will work tirelessly to make sure everything is just right for you.
Our funeral home is between St Catherine’s Church and Mile Cross Methodist Church. Our location makes us easily accessible from Upper Hellesdon, New Sprowston, Catton and Hellesdon. We also have funeral directors in Hoveton, Eaton, Dereham, Thorpe St Andrew and Lowestoft.
If you need to speak to us, or if you require any support or guidance when arranging a funeral, call us at any time, day or night, we promise to be there for you.
