About our Wantage funeral home

Previously H. J. Knapp & Sons Funeral Directors, we have joined fellow funeral homes in Oxfordshire to create Oliver & James Funeral Directors. We understand that life with those you love is incredibly personal and the need for a farewell which truly reflects and celebrates the life they lived is incredibly important. It is our duty and privilege to support local families in our cherished Oxfordshire community during one of the most difficult times of their lives. At our funeral home, you can expect the utmost respect from our team as we offer the advice and guidance you are looking for during this funeral journey. Whether you are new to funeral planning or if you have previously arranged a funeral, our team are on hand to answer any questions you may have and plan with you a fitting service for your loved one.

Our services

With two packages available, we will be able to arrange the funeral you have in mind for your loved one.

If you’re looking for a traditional or contemporary funeral with a service, you should consider our Attended Funeral. If you want us to arrange a simple cremation without mourners present, our Unattended Funeral may better suit your needs.
