About our Coulsdon Branch

We took over our Coulsdon premises from David Ebbutt in the late 1950s and, within a few weeks, a lorry coming down Woodcote Grove Road failed to stop at the junction and crashed into the shop front, causing extensive damage. However, this was quickly repaired and our branch reopened. The premises were extended in 1964 by the addition of new chapels of rest and have had two major refurbishments since then, one of which involved knocking down a large part of the exterior walls to eradicate dry rot. The branch has full facilities, including air conditioning.

It is run by Debbie Thompson. Debbie was born and raised in Brixton and attended the Dick Shepherd School in Tulse Hill. For many years she was an Office and Facilities Manager for the United States Navy and the British Army in London, until the US Navy departed in 2008. Following the deaths of family members and friends, she found she had the compassion and commitment to help others and decided to join the funeral profession. She did her training with another company and then joined us in 2011, initially as a Relief Manager, becoming the Manager of our Coulsdon branch in 2016. Debbie is a qualified funeral arranger, having been awarded her Certificate in Funeral Arranging and Administration by the London Association of Funeral Directors in 2009.

Parking is available in the Lion Green Road public car park, which is just over the road from our premises.

Coulsdon 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.

Some comments from our clients:

“Many thanks from our all our family for your arrangements and help with the funeral. It was not easy making such sensitive arrangements at a distance, but your support and prompt email responses made it possible. We were very pleased that the funeral was just as we had wanted. Please do pass on particular thanks to the staff who were with us on the day; especially Freddie who was professional, pleasant and kind. Their careful attention to the organisational details were really appreciated.”

“I just wanted to thank you and the team at Truelove for all you did for my Father’s funeral. As expected it was a very hard day for us to get through, but eased by the special care and attention Truelove showed us. Thank you again.”
