All About Bateman Funeral Services.

We are a small family owned and run Independent Funeral Director based in  Horley Town for over 15 years.  Built on reputation and unrivaled personal service, Ray and his team understand that losing a loved one is never easy but by working with bereaved families and friends at an intimate level we can make the immediate difficulty of bereavement just that little easier to bear and we offer a distinctive, personal service that takes all wishes, considerations and requirements into account.

Ray and his staff discuss the plans for your funeral in detail.  If required, we can make the necessary arrangements for conveyance and work with local authorities to obtain any permissions required. We also have a private Chapel of Rest available where families can spend quiet final moments with their loved ones.

Ray Bateman owns and runs the company, with the help of Emma, who oversees all the administration procedures. With over 32 years of experience, Ray has looked after many families. As a proud member of The National Society of Allied & Independent Funeral Directors ( SAIF ), Ray conforms to a very strict Code of Practice which is promoted daily to his staff on each and every funeral service that is conducted.

Ray and Emma are also Memorial Consultants, they can help you with your selection of Headstones and Tablets relevant to the Local Authorities laws and procedures.  Their chosen Stonemasons are members of NAIM, again conforming to strict guidelines and procedures for the production and fixing of headstones. Please feel free to ask in office where we can assist you with your requirements.’

Help, Care and Advice – 24 Hours a Day.

At Bateman Funeral Services, we know how isolated people can feel at times of bereavement so it’s always good to know that there’s somebody available to help.  We have been in the funeral business for many years and we understand that the right help, support and advice is just as important as the final funeral preparations.

To help our clients, we provide a complete 24-hour service that encompasses all aspects of the funeral arrangement process, covering everything from dealing with the initial shock of bereavement to choosing an appropriate casket, flowers and service.

Your Funeral Requirements Covered.

Bateman Funeral Services assist with all requirements following a bereavement including the provision of traditional, ecological and colourful coffins.

We have our own private Chapel of Rest where families and friends can spend their final reflective moments in the company of loved ones before the funeral itself.

On the day of the funeral, our Directors can organise horse-drawn carriages for those seeking a more detailed farewell or traditional hearses and vehicles for formal affairs.

Our business also helps to arrange pre-paid funeral plans.  While most of us prefer to think of the many joys we experience, we also have to accept that we are only guests in life.  Bateman Funeral Services are incredibly proud to have been selected by Golden Charter Funeral Plans to provide reassuring pre-paid packages to clients in Horley and the surrounding local area.
