Funeral Notices


The passing of a loved one is the most difficult thing many of us will ever have to experience. David Wilkinson Independent Funeral Directors, located in the heart of Tarleton near Preston, pride ourselves in offering a professional, personal and caring service to bereaved families at an incredibly emotional time.

Having recently moved into larger premises, we remain very much a part of the local community and our focus remains exactly the same - to provide the highest standards of care and service to bereaved families, 24 hours a days, 365 days a year.

From your initial call, to the funeral service and beyond, you will always be looked after by David or a member of his team - a team that recognise the importance of treating people and their families in a sympathetic and understanding nature in times of great distress.

We are members of the SAIF which is a National Society of Allied & Independent Funeral Directors. This means we adhere to the UK's highest standards among Independent Funeral Directors.

Bereaved families can be assured of a compassionate and professional approach which is underpinned by our industry leading Code of Practice.

We undergo inspection every two years.
