About Bennetts Funeral Directors

This family-run funeral directors began with Edward Bennett, grandfather of the current managing director, Jane Bennett. Records show that the company was first listed as an undertaker’s in the 1891 census.  In the late 1920s, the business was passed to Jane’s father, Arthur Bennett, who was responsible for building the first Essex funeral director’s mortuary. Three generations later, Jane Bennett and her team are proud to continue to serve bereaved families, with care and compassion, throughout the county of Essex and surrounding areas.
