About Us OLD

about in memory of life

We started In Memory Of Life with the belief that by operating without a direct high street presence, we can offer you a wider range of funeral services and at a more affordable price. We want to enable funerals to be led by honouring the memory of the person who has passed rather than price or availability. We aim to make funeral planning simpler and more transparent, and above all to give families full control in all the decision making so that they are able to say goodbye in a truly personal way.

flexible funeral planning

We give you the option to plan the funeral from the comfort of your own home either with our support over the phone or home visits from our team

A single point of contact

You will have one single point of contact at In Memory Of Life who you will be able to speak with at any time to plan the funeral.

Affordable Funeral Prices

Whilst we are proud of the high quality service we provide, we also believe funerals should be affordable. All of our prices are 100% transparent and there are no hidden costs

Meet the in memory of life team


On the day of the funeral, you will be greeted by one of our Funeral Conductors, either Brian, Martin or Geoff. The conductor, recognisable with a top hat and cane, will be your main point of contact and will compassionately guide you and all attendees through the day. Each of our conductors are highly experienced and will answer any of your questions as well as providing instruction to our team or to any family members who choose to carry the coffin.

fuNERAL operations team

Our funeral operations team will collect  your relative in our private ambulance, before caring for them with complete compassion and respect at our specialist mortuary facilities in South East London. On the day of the funeral, a team of experienced pallbearers (coffin bearers) and chauffeurs will be there to support you together with the conductor and any officiant you have chosen. Our team will always be immaculately dressed in smart uniforms at all times.
