Our service

At CPJ Field we understand that no two lives are the same, which is why every funeral we arrange is completely individual too. Whether you’re making the arrangements for a loved one or prudently planning your own, we’re here for you in every way.

Over the past three centuries, CPJ Field has been actively owned and managed by the Field family through ten generations. It is our solemn promise to help you to make your funeral experience as personal and individual as possible.

We are here to help

We are here to provide you with any help and support you may need, from the preparations for the funeral, through to the event itself and the days and months that follow. We are happy to visit you in your own home to discuss arrangements, or if you prefer, we can talk in the comfort and privacy of one of our well-appointed reception rooms. Alternatively we can talk over the phone or via a video call at a date and time that is convenient for you.

During what can be a very difficult time, you will have peace of mind knowing that we are always on hand for you, day or night.

We will talk things through with you thoroughly to make sure that you are comfortable with the plans, down to the smallest detail. If the deceased person left behind specific requirements in a will or pre-paid funeral plan, then we will work with you to respect their wishes. We fully appreciate the importance of this day to you, family members and friends. That is why we are committed to making the service both meaningful and memorable.


    Supporting you at every step

    As well as the funeral arrangements themselves, our services can include:

    • Helping you to register the death once you have the medical certificate
    • Collating the medical and legal certificates together with other documentation and handing them to the relevant authorities
    • Arranging announcements in local and national newspapers in memory of your loved one
    • Helping you organise a grave or resting place for cremated remains
    • Providing memorials, ranging from headstones to cremation plaques
    • Introducing you to relevant specialists if you need help in an area in which we are not qualified or licensed to give advice
    Bereavement Support

    On the day

    On the day of the funeral, you can be confident that everything will go according to plan. Our expertise and years of experience mean that the day will run smoothly and seamlessly so that you are free to focus on the important things.

    Our limousines seat six in comfort and we can supply more cars if required. We are also able to provide a collection service for any funeral attendees who are arriving by train or plane.

    The service will be attended by our funeral directors who will escort you, your family and the principle mourners. We will guide you through the whole process, including any seating arrangements and will provide church ushers if desired.

    Our services during Covid-19

    During the Covid-19 pandemic, we have continued to deliver the same high levels of care for families and their loved ones.

    We have continued to allow families to visit their loved one in a chapel of rest, we have continued to embalm where desired and to allow people to be dressed in their own clothing. We have embraced technology to allow for Zoom streaming of funerals and receptions, allowing those restricted in attendance to still play a meaningful role in the ceremony. We've altered the routes to allow neighbours and friends to pay their respect as the cortège drove past and we've still allowed people to come in and decorate the coffin to make their own personal stamp on the final farewell. Now more than ever, as more deaths have occurred unexpectedly and families have been isolated from one another through shielding and lockdown, the small details really have made all the difference in ensuring a meaningful send off.
