About our Cheam Branch

Although we have served families in Cheam since our very early years, we did not have our own premises in the village until the 1930s. Instead, “funeral orders were received for W. A. Truelove” by the local memorial masons and landscape gardeners, D.M. Ebbutt, whose premises were on the corner of the High Street and Red Lion Street, now Park Road. In the 1930s, Harry Truelove purchased Ebbutt’s premises and opened our first Cheam branch. He later purchased the adjoining properties in the High Street and in Park Road. These were all demolished in the mid 1950s and a new, purpose built funeral home and block of staff flats were erected, opening in October 1957.

Cheam branch is run by Janice Harley, who is a qualified funeral arranger, having gained her Certificate in Funeral Arranging and Administration from the London Association of Funeral Directors. Janice joined the company in 2010, after arranging her own mother’s funeral with us. She had worked for HSBC, but felt she would like to be able to assist families during their time of need. Her father, Joe, is a keen pigeon fancier and handles the release of our white doves on our funerals.

On-street parking is usually available in the side streets near the branch, or there is a public car park at the other end of Park Road, by the library.

Cheam branch is open from 9.00 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. from Monday to Friday and from 9.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. on Saturdays. Outside of these hours, please ring our Head Office on 020 8642 8211.
