W Sherry & Sons was founded in 1850, and has been run by the Sherry family ever since. The company is currently under the direct control of the fifth, sixth and seventh generations, Robin, Neil and Brooke Sherry, respectively.
We are founder members of the National Association of Funeral Directors, and are part of SAIF - the Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors, set up to promote the benefits of, and to act for the smaller family run business, as opposed to the large nationally and internationally owned funeral groups.
We are the appointed Funeral Directors for the London Boroughs of Ealing, Hillingdon, Hammersmith & Fulham, Hounslow, Harrow, Westminster, Lambeth and Kensington & Chelsea local authority funerals.
Because we are part of your local community we understand the needs of your community. Just as you do, we turn to our local firms for services and products - people we know we can trust. We also support local charities and community organisations, whenever possible.
We are part of your community - treat us as family - we will always be here when you need us.
Now incorporating JR Barton & Son
Neil Sherry was very proud to announce the acquisition of JR Barton & Son in December 2015 to complement our existing service. The JR Barton & Son branches at South Harrow, Ruislip and Yeading will work alongside W Sherry & Sons' existing branches in Uxbridge, Ickenham, Sudbury Hill, Greenford, Hanwell and Acton.
Neil Sherry says, "JR Barton are a great example of a well respected local family business and my family are pleased to be able to continue to provide the very high levels of care and professionalism to the families that we help throughout our nine branches."
R.I.P. Corrado Massimo Boscarelli
It is with great sadness and regret that we have to report the passing of one of our senior managers. Corrado passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Wednesday 8th March 2017 at The Michael Sobell Hospice, Northwood.
Corrado was an essential part of our hard working team. He took his work very seriously and had a wonderful empathy with the families he served. He also had a very unique sense of humour.
Corrado will be greatly missed by all of us.
There has been a lot of press coverage recently surrounding the cost of a funeral. Some sources have claimed that funeral costs have doubled in the last ten years. In our experience this is NOT the case.
There are also a number of websites advertising 'low cost funerals'.
At W Sherry & Sons we are committed to providing the best service at the fairest and most competitive prices. We offer a bespoke funeral service, tailored to your individual requirements, depending on the level of service required and the budget you are willing to spend on the funeral.
As an independent family run company our fees are negotiable depending on your circumstances. We can arrange the simplest or most elaborate funeral. And you can be sure that you will receive a professional service provided by a company with 167 years experience behind it.
