Why Dillamore?

Dillamore Building in Leighton Buzzard

Dealing with the death of a loved one can be overwhelming. Here at Dillamore we provide funeral services that truly reflect a person’s individual wishes, and our intention is to bring peace of mind to everyone we support. Our experience, flexibility and meticulous approach ensures that you and your loved ones will have memorable moments that matter.

A trusted family business

Dillamore prides itself on being a trusted, independent family-run business that has been serving Leighton Buzzard’s diverse community since 1923. Our team comprises both family members and local people, and we take pride in offering a caring and professional service. We are here to take care of you, your family and the local community, in the same way we would care for our own family.

Serving the community for 100 years

We have been providing funeral services to local families for 100 years and are proud to be one of Leighton Buzzard’s oldest family businesses. Our experienced team can support you in arranging a funeral of all different faiths and beliefs, and our long-established relationships with churches, cemeteries, celebrants and ministers help us to provide an unrivalled service in the local area.

Your loved one is cared for at our funeral home

We understand that peace of mind comes in knowing that your loved one is taken care of with kindness and respect. When someone arrives with us, they will be looked after at our premises on Old Road for the duration of their stay and will never be moved to a separate location. This ensures we can provide the very best care for the deceased, and means you can visit your loved one whenever you wish.

A comfortable and modern Chapel of Rest

Our newly refurbished Chapel of Rest provides a soothing setting for anyone wishing to visit their loved one during their time with us. Located on our premises, the Chapel of Rest offers full privacy for you and your family to spend time with your loved one in a calm and meaningful way. Our aim is to make your experience as peaceful as possible, and we will provide you with as much support as you need during your visit.

A flexible and personalised approach

We understand that no two funerals are the same, and what feels right for one family may not feel right for another. Our experience and knowledge allows us to work with each family on an individual basis, fulfilling your needs and wishes to create a meaningful and memorable goodbye. Nothing is too much trouble and we provide personalised care and attention to everyone we work with. Our team are on-hand throughout the experience to provide advice, guidance or a friendly ear should you need it.

A caring and supportive team

Losing someone is one of the most difficult things a person can experience, so providing a caring and supportive service is at the heart of everything we do. Our aim is to provide you with a sense of comfort as the funeral arrangements are made, taking on as much of the burden as we can to support you during this time. We are available 24/7 in the days following a person’s death and are on-hand to provide care, guidance and a sense of comfort should you need it.

Flexible pricing to suit every budget

Everyone should have the right to a dignified and respectful funeral, and we aim to make our funerals as accessible as possible. Our flexible approach to planning allows us to work with most budgets and our aim is to arrange a funeral that doesn’t cause you any financial strain. We provide full transparency regarding funeral costs and will offer advice and guidance whenever it is needed. Our fees, and the service we provide to you, remains the same no matter how expensive the funeral is.
