Welcome to Walkers Funeral Directors
Your local independent family funeral director
We are an independent, third generation family Funeral Directors dedicated to serving the communities of Penrith, Appleby, Alston, the surrounding Eden Valley, along with Keswick and further afield in Cumbria with a professional, respectful and personal funeral service. We have been supporting the bereaved in our community for over 70 years.
Our role is to help you through a very difficult time, coping with the extreme emotions that bereavement brings, such as grief, bewilderment, indecision, etc.
On a practical level, we take care of everything, from notices in the paper and flowers to the headstone, funeral arrangements, paperwork and correspondences.
Walkers Funeral Directors creates bespoke services that allow you to say goodbye to your loved one in a personal way. We ensure everything from the music to the coffin form a fitting and unique tribute to your loved one and provide you with some comfort on the day of the funeral.
We cater for all religions and beliefs as well as organising both traditional and modern funeral arrangements. Our services are flexible to your needs.
We maintain the highest standards in all areas of the business, from ongoing staff training to the upkeep of our vehicles. As a family establishment, we carry our own values through everything we do.
Families can visit us at our offices or in their own home – whichever is more convenient, we are on call 24 hours a day. Our fully equipped office in Penrith is conveniently located on Bridge Lane and includes plenty of parking, a private and tranquil chapel of rest.
If you want to prevent your family having to organize your funeral, we also specialise in arranging pre-paid and pre-planned funerals.
A funeral service offering the highest standards
At Walkers Funeral Directors we are totally committed to offering the very highest standards of service and care to the bereaved.
Losing someone you care about can be one of life’s most difficult experiences. We believe we have an important responsibility to care for the bereaved, not just by offering support during the funeral but also in the days and weeks that follow.
