About Us

    About E Sargeant & Son Funeral Directors


    E Sargeant & Son Funeral Directors was established in 1712 in the reign of Queen Anne and is one of the oldest businesses in the country. Our funeral home in Slough was established in 1922, in Windsor in 1923 and in Maidenhead in 1991.


    We are proud to serve the people in those communities of many different cultures and faiths, as well as those with no religious beliefs. We have branches in Slough, Maidenhead and Windsor. Our Windsor funeral home has its own Service Venue where you may choose to hold the funeral in the very heart of your local community.

    We bring empathy and experience to support you in planning your loved one’s funeral and fulfilling your wishes to the best of our ability. 

    Our experienced and caring team will advise and support you at every stage of the funeral planning process, with a wide range of funeral options and transparent pricing. 

    Here at E Sargeant & Son Funeral Directors we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.

    If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.
