About Burnham Funeral Services

Burnham Funeral Services has been providing a funeral service within the community of Burnham since 1991. We have established a close, trusting relationship with many Burnham familes as well as those living in Highbridge and the surrounding areas.

Here at Burnham Funeral Services we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.

If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.
