Making a funeral as unique
as the life it celebrates

Let our family help yours

Adams Read & Hocking Funeral Directors is an independent, family owned company based in West Cumbria. Over the years the business has evolved, culminating in the business we are today.  We have been privileged to serve the families in our community since 1947 and hope to continue well into the future.

We are fully certified members of the National Association of Funeral Directors, which means that we comply and adhere to their robust Code of Practice and that our facilities and practices meet their exacting standards.

Our role is to take care of all the necessary arrangements required following a bereavement, and our aim is to relieve you of any worry and anxiety when facing, what may seem, a very daunting undertaking.  We offer a completely personalised service and truly believe that a funeral should be a reflection of your loved one’s life and interests.  Whether we arrange the service from start to finish, or take a discreet approach as we support your decisions – we are always here to discuss your wishes.

Whether you are visiting our website after a loss, or just out of interest, we hope that it helps you in some way.
