About Ford Mears & Partners - 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. 

Contact us if you would like to find out more about our services or to discuss how we can help you with the funeral arrangements.
