For well over 100 years the Wilde family name was synonymous with everything that was beneficial about dealing with an independent funeral director at your time of greatest need.
What we offer as part of our service
We operate a 24 hour, 365 days a year personal service. Our duty to you starts as soon as contact is made, either by telephone or by calling personally into our funeral home.
Our caring team
At a time which suits, you a member of our team will discuss all the options available in order to fulfil your personal needs and requirements for the funeral arrangements.
The order of service
We are able to print personalised order of service sheets, pew cards to record those people who have attended the service, and can fulfil other printing requirements on request.
The flower arrangements
We can arrange these for you via local florists who will be pleased to help you choose from a variety of different styles, individual designs, and seasonal flowers to suit your own personal taste.
At a funeral service music can help reflect the character of the deceased as a reminder of their personality, taste and interests. We can arrange the music for you.
Upon request, we can arrange for you catering at various venues who are experienced in providing funeral buffets.
If there is a special requirement or desire which will not compromise the dignity of the deceased or occasion, please ask.
Exceptional, highly recommended. All our family greatly appreciate the professional, empathetic and thoughtful service. Our Dad has just passed. Dad was highly impressed by the handling of Mum’s funeral. It was fitting that this was replicated for Dad. Thanks so much.
When I suddenly lost my husband I did not know which way to turn. There are so may funeral directors in the area and as I had never had to use one before, I was left with reviewing web-sites and reading testimonials to make my decision. I chose Ian Wilde because of the comments made on their web-page and I now want to add my own to hopefully help someone else in my position. I cannot recommend the team at Ian Wilde highly enough, I dealt with Kirsty who was wonderful, she helped me through every step of the process showing great kindness and empathy to me and my family. What really struck me was the respect shown to my late husband and how they supported us on the day of his funeral, ensuring everything went perfectly. They are really wonderful people and a wonderful team - thank you.
When our mother recently passed there was never any doubt as to who we would ask to take care of her and the funeral arrangements. We had complete trust in Ian, Wendy and the team that everything would be handled in a professional and compassionate manner. At a time when life seems so overwhelming, at no stage did the family feel pressured into making decisions but listened to with patience and understanding given such sad circumstances. Suggestions were made to help the family in a sensitive and delicate way. Needless to say the day of mum's funeral went exactly as planned and if there is such a thing as a "good" funeral this was it. Ian and Wendy clearly care deeply about their profession; and the service they provide I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending.
l would like to say how grateful l'am to have had these lovely people take care of my mum's funeral. Everything was taken care of the moment l contacted them. So thoughtful all the way and after. Would highly recommend their professional attributes for a small family run business . Thank you again.
Professional, caring company. The guidance and support from Wendy, Kirsty and Lucy was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble and we were shown patience and understanding during this very sad time of the loss of a loved husband, dad, and grandad . Their attention to detail was outstanding . Our thanks to everyone who took care of us especially on the day of the funeral . Everything was perfect
Ian, Wendy, Lucy, and Kirsty were consistently respectful and professional; taking a lot of the pressure off during such a painful and difficult time. Even after the funeral, they have remained willing to assist in any way they can. They certainly were a great help, and are a fantastic team. Thank you so much.
