    About Richard Lloyd Funeral Services

    Richard Lloyd Funeral Services, established in 2008, serves the local community in Woodley, Early, Twyford, Sonning, Ruscombe and Charvil, as well as parts of Reading, Wokingham and Bracknell.

    The team at our Woodley funeral home will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one.

    Here at Richard Lloyd 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.
