About Us

At Gavin Palin Funeral Services we are committed to be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year covering all areas including Nantwich, Crewe and surrounding areas. We are here whether it be to answer any questions over the phone, to provide our personal and professional service, to attend a sudden death, to convey your loved one to our private chapel of rest or to meet a family or individuals at a place of your own choice or at our funeral home in Nantwich.


Our funeral home is always available and open to walk in during the day (9am - 4pm, Monday - Friday) and any other time by appointment including weekends. We are the only funeral directors with a private chapel of rest here in Nantwich and you can visit your loved one any time of the day or night and spend as much time as you wish.


Our experience allows us to offer you information and advice regarding funeral arrangements and what to do in the event of a death. We are here to guide you through every step of your bereavement and to ensure that the funeral arrangements meet your loved ones wishes.


Our services can include, organising a time and day for the service to take place, Booking a church or crematorium chapel for a service followed by a burial or cremation as the family wishes, providing a religious minister or a non religious celebrant and also organising funeral cars for the day, Arranging floral tributes, visits to see your loved ones at our private Chapel of Rest, organising headstones, memorial plots and the return of ashes to the family or internment in a place of your own choice.

Our family business has recently become part of the "Creating A Dementia Friendly Nantwich Scheme". Each member of our team have taken part in a session, talking about the effects dementia has on our loved ones themselves and you as their family, and we have a greater understanding of this illness and are fully aware of what we can do to help in raising the awareness of Dementia to others. We are very proud to be a Dementia Friendly Family Funeral Service here in Nantwich.
