About Ford Mears & Partners
Funeral Director in Yateley

Our Yateley office opened in 2017 at the bungalow on 113 Reading Road which is where the once family owned business of George Parker & Sons Funeral Directors were once based, the family sold the business to the Co-op in 2008 and then they later moved premises. Once the opportunity was available to be in their old property we decided this was a good legacy to take on.

As part of the Ford Mears group, Yateley continues to provide a caring and professional service to the local community around Yateley, Sandhurst, Cricket Hill, Darby Green, Blackbushe, Eversley and Finchampstead.

The nearest crematoria is Easthampstead park.
