The History of Southall Funeral Service

After supplying funeral vehicles to the funeral profession across the west London area since 1968, John and Jennifer Tiney opened Southall Funeral Service as a small family run Funeral Directors in October 1982 to serve the local community of Southall and the surrounding areas, to offer a personal 24 hour service

John and Jennifer’s son Michael joined the family business in February 1996, while their son David joined the family run business in April 2004, in 2017 Michael’s son Ben joined the family business, to carry on the tradition of being a small family run funeral business making it a third generation family run funeral directors.

In February 2012, Southall Funeral Service took delivery of a new fleet of vehicles based on the new Jaguar XJ design.

Southall Funeral Service are proud to be assocated with S.A.I.F (The National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors)and adhere to their Code of Practice and standards and are inspected to ensure we maintain these.

Benefits of Independent Funeral Directors

It’s odd but often it’s hard to tell a truly independent family funeral director from one which is merely an office of a large national company. Everyone knows that the Co-operative have a funerals business but what people don’t often realise is that both the Co-op and their main rival Dignity buy up independent businesses and then continue to trade under the name of the existing business. It’s not until you experience the attention to detail, the personal attention from the owners and the sheer dedication and pride in their service that locally owned businesses provide that the difference becomes obvious.

Independent family owned companies carry out the majority of funerals in the UK and the combination of many years of expertise and being focused on their local community means that local firms can deliver a truly personal service appropriate to your needs.

Many local firms will have been owned by the same family for several generations and will have built up a reputation for services and for the highest standards. Most will be members of one of the Main Trade associations and will have fully qualified staff able to deal with all your requests. It’s important to look to see that a funeral director is an accredited member of either SAIF, the National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors or the NAFD, the National Association of Funeral Directors. Both Organisations rigorously audit and measure the services and qualifications of their members ensuring that the highest professional standards are maintained at all times.
