About Egham & Hythe
Funeral Director in Egham

Egham & Hythe Funeral Directors was established by Ian Glazier and Evelyn Woodison in 1990. They had previously worked together at Hodgson Holdings, a local large funeral firm that was sold to Great Southern Group, and decided to open Egham & Hythe for themselves.

Over the next few years Ian and Evelyn enjoyed great success covering a large local area and providing a good service to the community with the aid of P Boast & Son for vehicles and bearers. As the business grew, so did the overheads and financial demands, and the pair approached John Ford and Tony Mears for advice and assistance during this period.

Eventually they decided to sell the business to help Evelyn retire and free themselves from the stress of running the business on a day-to-day basis. It therefore made sense to sell the business to their associates at G M Luff & Partners with whom they’d built up a good relationship over the years. Ian decided to stay on with the firm and took on various roles across the company during subsequent years.

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