About Us

    About Maunders Funeral Service

    Situated in Well Street on the edge of the Victorian Paignton Parish church yard, Mauders Funeral Service was originally a builder’s yard, but back in the early 1900s it officially became titled ‘Maunders builders, funerals & coffin makers’ and began to establish a lasting reputation caring for local families. 

    The team at our Paignton funeral home will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one. We have our own service venue on-site.

    Here at Maunders Funeral Service 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.
