The history of Oliver & James Funeral Directors

Founding Oliver & James Funeral Directors

Oliver & James Funeral Directors is the result of local funeral homes in Oxfordshire joining together to create something great for the community. In addition to deciding to merge with other brilliant funeral homes in the area, we have also decided to have our fresh start with a brand new name. Our new name, Oliver & James Funeral Directors, is one that we use with pride, as it is the surnames of 2 incredible team members who have collectively dedicated more than 45 years of service to Dignity Oxfordshire, our Clients and their loved ones. June Oliver is our Administrator who has provided 25 years of service and Suzanne James is our Funeral Service Arranger who has served us for 20 years! While the names of your Oxfordshire funeral homes are changing, you can expect the same level of reliability and professionalism that your local funeral home has always provided. If you are local to Oxfordshire, you may know the brands who will be working under the Oliver & James name, as they were previously known as: H.J. Knapp & Sons Funeral Directors Wantage , L Hartness Funeral Service Bicester and S&R Childs Funeral Services in Headington, Witney, Abingdon, Botley, Rose Hill and Kidlington. These brands have been serving their local communities for many years and have therefore built up a wealth of local knowledge and expertise. You can learn more about their experience and team on their individual location pages. As we look to the future, the future of Oliver & James Funeral Directors looks bright as we collaborate with brilliant funeral professionals to consistently serve local Oxfordshire communities with high standards of care.
