Butterfly Funeral Services
Independent Family Funeral Directors
Fully Independent Family Funeral Service.
We are a small family run Independent Funeral Directors based in East Goscote in the beautiful Charnwood area of Leicestershire.
Our Funeral Directors' Shane and Danielle together have over 30 years experience in the funeral profession.
We are proud to be members of The British Institute of Funeral Directors, this shows our commitment to delivering a quality service and upholding the highest standards with continuous professional development.
We have a large private chapel of rest called 'The Griffin Suite' named after the late 'Dave Griffin', a lifelong friend who we sadly lost in 2020 and was the first to use Butterfly Funeral Services.
'The Griffin Suite' is a homely private room where you can spend time with your loved one or just visit for some reflection or prayer time if you decide viewing is not for you but still want to feel close.
