Business Profile

About R.Greaves & Co. Established in 2015, R. Greaves & Co. takes pride in offering you a personal, individually-tailored service. Nothing is too much trouble. We promise to listen to your specific requests and make you feel as relaxed and in-control as possible. Your requirements will be taken care of with the utmost dignity and respect by a team of local specialists who care.

Horse-drawn funerals A funeral with a traditional touch, for those wishing for something out of the ordinary. Carriages are available in black, white and even pink. You can choose from a pair of horses or a team of four.

Motorbike funerals Reflect the life of the person who has passed away and give them the send-off that they would choose. Choices include a Triumph, a Suzuki Hyabusa, a Harley Davidson and a Trike.

Sea burials There are two designated sites for sea burials in England, one in Newhaven, East Sussex, and the other at The Needles Spoil Ground, just off the Isle of Wight.

Sea burials are available to all, but there are strict rules that apply. Having had experience of sea burials, Rhian is happy to discuss this option and to guide you through the requirements.

Green burials The impact we have on our environment is changing the way we look at funerals. If you would prefer an enviromentally sensitive alternative to a traditional burial or cremation, there are several options available, including the Fenns Meadow Green Burial Ground in Whitchurch.

After Care After the funeral has taken place, R. Greaves & Co.'s comittment doesn't end there.

If you would like to inter the cremated remains of your loved one, even if the funeral took place some years earlier, this can be arranged.

We are always here for you, no matter how much time has passed from when we helped with the funeral arrangements.

"On the recent passing of a close family member, we found Rhian was sensitive, supportive and professional. She listened, was patient as we talked and even laughed along with us over a particular memory. Rhian ensured that we had all the information we needed to ensure that everything required was completed smoothly. She offered a first class service in all ways. Thank you, you made a difficult time easier to bear."

"when my wife passed away my life was turned upside down..Organising her funeral was the last thing i wanted to do. I turned to Rhian at R.Greaves & co to help me through what i believe is one of the hardest things a husband must ever have to do. She was very caring to myself and my family, Helping to steer us through all that we needed to do to make our last moments with Helen as special and personal as possible. I am truly thankful for all she did for us. xx"

David Carter on 22 July 2017


"Rhian did my grandad Alfs funeral beautifully. It was his request that only she could be the one to do it and he was completely spot on. The establishments way of adding celebration to a loved ones life with its colour and way of displaying the bodies of family members is tasteful and leaves you feeling comforted that even then after their life has ended, their bodies are still so cherished and cared for in a loving manner. Even though funerals and seeing a loved one pass on is extremely sad and upsetting. Rhian has a way like no other that makes you remember those who have passed on with fonder thoughts, so instead of leaving feeling sad that you will never see them again, you instead leave feeling comforted and reminded of all that was so wonderful about that person and the life they lived and how lucky you were to have known them."

Sophie Dorey on 9 July 2017

"Rhian made everything go so well on the day of Shelagh's Thanksgiving Service and Burial. No matter how unusual some of my requests may have been they were all carried out without a hitch. Many friends have told me the celebration service and burial was a wonderful tribute to a very special lady, and this would not have been possible without Rhian's steadfast work and support."

Edwin Hargraves on 10 April 2017

At such a difficult time in my life it was a comfort to have such a caring, competent & yet very professional person "in charge". Any worries or concerns I had were dealt with straight away. I cannot thank Rhian enough for all she did for us. I have no hesitation in recommending her services. Thank you."
