James Brothers are the oldest family owned funeral directors in the Plymouth Area, having grown from the carpentry business of Ned James in the late 1870’s.
For the last 150 years they have been helping the people in the time of bereavement through the changing processes of the Funeral Industry. Traditionally located in Brixton and the surrounding villages the company has recently moved to new premises in Plympton, while keeping strong ties with their traditional location. Although a lot has changed they still maintain the simple family led approach that was started by Ned all those years ago, and is carried on today by his great-grandson, Tim, and his staff.
We provide assistance from the beginning to the end of the funeral service—and beyond , working closely with florists, stonemasons and other peripheral contributors to the funeral industry in order to provide you with all you need at the time of need.
We are here to help you take care of the necessary arrangements from the initial contact through to the funeral itself and beyond. We are not bound by a corporate head office that dictates strict rules; we are flexible and responsive to your individual needs. We remain locally owned, family run and are known throughout Plymouth, The South Hams and South devon. This does not limit the services we provide, helping you arrange the funeral you want.
Although the nature of the funeral directing industry has changed and continues to change with the passage and time, and more acute public awareness, James Brothers is committed in giving the best service it is able, trying our best to treat with people as we would family. We are there whenever you need us and will do our best to provide you with all the help you need in a very emotional time.
