About A & W Goddard
Funeral Director in Fleet

A & W Goddard was a local builders, carpenters, painters and funeral directors business started in 1896 by Arthur and William Goddard in Fleet. They were provided with assistance by the family business of E Finch & Sons from Aldershot in the form of staff, horses and carts, and funeral vehicles.

After the Goddard brothers died, the business was passed onto Norman Goddard and his cousin Frank Carol, but continued to receive assistance from John and Tony at E Finch & Sons.

After E Finch & Sons was sold to Great Southern Group, the business was acquired by John, Tony and Martin at the beginning of 1989. The premises were then subsequently demolished and rebuilt in Kent Road, Fleet where the business continues to serve the local community to this day.

As part of the Ford Mears group, A & W Goddard continues to provide a caring and professional service to the local community around Fleet. Further investment in the business by Ford Mears has meant that A & W Goddard is now able to offer a wider range of services and vehicle options, whilst still providing a personalised service that honours the legacy of A & W Goddard’s independent, family-run business.

Feefo Reviews

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are having to change the way we are running. We would appreciate where possible to do funeral arrangements over the phone. We are aware this is not ideal, neither is it the way we wish to be operating. Understandably due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are adopting these methods to be as compliant as possible with government guidance. This will also apply to the manner in how we are conducting the funerals, we will ensure to do our utmost to remain highly respectful as usual, with as many of our traditions still in place.

For the safety of our staff and yourselves, we are adapting daily to the guidelines set by the government and local authorities.

For any queries or concerns please do contact any of our offices or general enquires on 01252 616431.
