Independent Funeral Directors covering Chelmsford and Essex

Independent Funeral Directors


I Cannot recommend Secure Haven high enough. Paul, Cheryl, Kate and the team were amazing from start to finish . At a very difficult time they made the whole occasion seamless and made it very personal and special to Mum and the family . In my mind there would be no other company we would recommend in the area . Simply perfect.

Thank you all so very much

About Us

Secure Haven Independent Funeral Directors, owned by Paul and Cheryl, was formed from their own experience of loss so they decided to help other families that were going through the same.

We understood that like ourselves, families need to create a funeral service that is right for their loved one as we would our own. We created our modern air-conditioned office with ample parking at Hospital Approach, Broomfield where decisions can be made and families wishes discussed.

By creating bespoke funeral packages, with all-inclusive pricing, costs of services on all literature and the website, we knew that like us, families need to understand how much a funeral costs prior to arrangement.

Our qualified, professional Funeral Director, Kate Brew, with over 16 years experience within the funeral industry understands the importance of providing the best personal care to our families from arrangement to ashes storage and grief recovery.

We believe that funerals should not always be priced on cost alone however, and as we are confident in our facilities and levels of professional care, we will always match any written professional quote from a local funeral director.

To discuss your needs with our experienced Funeral Director, Kate Brew, here at the our offices or within the privacy of your own home, please contact us no matter the time of day.

Our Price Promise

We promise to price match any written quotation from another Funeral Director.

We are confident that families should choose our services based on our facilities and professional care rather than on cost alone.


Secure Haven believe, that at a time of grief, families should immediately be able to view the funeral costs involved in preparing the arrangements for their loved one. We have created three bespoke packages which represent the needs of the modern family to enable them to provide a service fully tailored to their wishes.

Whatever package a family chooses, they will always receive our utmost care and full support throughout this difficult time. Secure Haven can provide funerals from a non-service cremation, without the need for a ceremony, to a full service at a church or crematorium of their choice in the most traditional manner. By using our packagesextras if they so wish – families can understand how much the funeral will cost and can tailor the ceremony to their wishes.
