Frank Painter & Sons - Four Generations

Now in the fourth generation of the Painter family, Frank Painter & Sons are widely known & respected as Shrewsbury's only totally independent 4 Generation Family Funeral Directors. Founder of the business, Frank Painter, began serving the local community as a Funeral Director in 1939, followed in later years by his son Alan and more recently by Frank's grandsons Chris & Mike and great grandson Alan.

It has always been of paramount importance to the firm to give every help, advise and assistance to bereaved families. Thus hopefully in some small way easing the trauma, uncertainty and distress caused by bereavement.

The greatest care, respect and dignity is at all time afforded to your loved one. Families who wish to, may visit their loved ones in private, purpose built, dedicated Chapels of Rest. The funeral service offered by ourselves is individually tailored to the requirements of the family concerned and is at all times under the direction and personal supervision of Mr Chris Painter and Mr Mike Painter, whose dedication and commitment is a mirror image of their father and grandfather before them.

When you have obtained the medical certificate of cause of death you need to make an appointment at your local registry office of Births, Marriages and Deaths. If the death has been referred to the Coroner, the procedure is slightly different. We will advise you concerning this.
