Lodge Brothers branches throughout the UK have decorated and dressed their windows in the finest Christmas décor. Each branch has been decorated in their own unique style.

“All our branches take an active role in local community events, supporting many charities and raising funds for local causes. Read our news stories here.”



Lodge Brothers funeral directors Cobham recently invited bereaved families to an intimate Christmas tree blessing ceremony held at the branch in Holly Hedge Road.

Following a service and blessing from Rev Canon Robert Jenkins of St Andrews Church, families were given the opportunity to hang a message on the tree, then the lights were switched on and will stay lit through the Christmas period as a mark of remembrance for those loved ones lost in Cobham this year.

Afterwards, refreshments and were served and memories were shared, and as they left the guests thanked the staff for arranging this lovely act of remembrance.



Not one to shy away from a challenge, Paul Bye at Lodge Brothers could not turn down the opportunity to save Christmas for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice when he was approached by the Hospice for help.

The Hospice had been gifted a 20ft Christmas tree from a local garden centre but they had no way of delivering the tree to the Hospice. The gauntlet was thrown down and within hours a large lorry was hired, and Chris Oliver and Paul were on their way to deliver the tree.

The Dutch tree took centre stage at the Hospice’s ‘Light up a Life’ event on 28th November.

Organising a funeral can seem like a daunting task, especially when we find ourselves having to make difficult decisions at a time of loss and bereavement, when we feel least able to manage. Lodge Brothers funeral directors Ruislip dedicated professional and empathetic staff are available 24 hour service, 365 days a year, providing advice on what needs to be done and by whom.

We take this opportunity to wish our customers a very happy festive season.

Lodge Brothers commemorated remembrance day

A Woking man has devoted the last few months to putting together a display to commemorate not only all those who lost their lives in the two World Wars and later conflicts, but also in memory of his Father and Son.

Neville Lazenby wanted to create the display to thank Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors of Goldsworth Road, for the way they looked after his son Steven after he died of a brain tumour in January 2012.  Neville and his wife Janette have remained in contact with Paul Thurtle (Branch Manager) since Paul arranged their son’s funeral.

In this very special year marking the 100th anniversary of Britain entering the First World War, Neville decided to design and build a window display for the Woking Branch of Lodge Brothers.

The picture shows Neville and Paul with the display.

Neville has included a picture of his father, Sergeant Ralph Lazenby who died in 2003.  He was an original member of the SAS in 1941.  He was sent out to the Middle East, was captured and then imprisoned in Stalag 357.

Also remembered in the display is Woking resident Walter ‘Charlie’ Brown OBE who died in 2010.

Neville also included in the display four detailed replica figures of soldiers from his collection.  The soldiers and the display have been causing a lot of interest from local people passing by the window.

Paul and all the Lodge Brothers branches such as Funeral Directors AshfordFuneral Directors FelthamFuneral Directors WokingFuneral Directors Chertsey and Funeral Directors Englefield Green are extremely grateful to Neville and Janette for their generosity in using their time and talents to create a fantastic window display.
