We appreciate that dealing with the arrangements for a funeral isn't easy at a time when things are very difficult for you already. We want to make the process as easy as possible for you which is why we offer several fixed priced packages.  The price you see is the price you pay.  This can be from a simple dignified "no fuss" funeral to a funeral with a hearse and limousine in a cortege that leaves from the house. We also offer a "no service cremation" that no one attends like David Bowie had.

From our funeral home in St Austell,  Cornwall we are well positioned to serve the surrounding area. We are more than happy to see you in our arrangement room at the funeral home or we can come to see you in the comfort of your own home. Although based at St Austell we cover all of Cornwall. We are available for you 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

The Wedlake’s have been funeral directors in the Bugle area since 1816, in 1921 Fitzroy Wedlake (pictured above) set up his funeral business in Higher Bugle, St Austell, Cornwall as V F Wedlake and Son. The funerals, like many of the time, ran alongside the carpentry and joinery business.

This business was taken over by Mr Wedlake’s Son Geoff, who in turn handed the business over to his Son’s Alan and Roderick. Alan looked after the funeral side of the business but sadly died young so his younger brother Roderick took over the business . In 1989 the Purpose built Chapel of Rest was built at 2 Higher Bugle, St Austell, Cornwall and has been a place for families to arrange funerals and visit their loved ones. In time Roderick gave up the carpentry and joinery business to focus on his funeral families. In 2018 the funeral home was completely refurbished to meet the needs of a modern funeral home. Nick Jago, an experienced funeral director, has now been entrusted with the business and looks after the day to day needs of the clients and community.

We never forget we are looking after your family and we treat them as if they are our own. We are here to help you in your time of need, we offer a clear and direct attitude to pricing.
