De Gruchy’s Funeral Care has been part of the Channel Islands Coop and locally owned by islanders since 2009.
We are a small team of qualified and highly experienced funeral directors, assistants and bearers and civil funeral celebrants.
Getting your funeral right matters to us and we pride ourselves on the personal service and the attention to detail that we give at affordable prices. We are here to guide, advise and support you through what can be a difficult time, trying to make things as easy as they can be while giving the person who has died the very best send-off.
We are members of the National Association of Funeral Directors and adhere strictly to its code of practice.
Costs and pre-paid funeral plans
We will always provide you with a quote of cost prior to the funeral service taking place and you are welcome to talk to us, or to meet us to discuss planning a funeral with us, without any obligation.
We are able to arrange worldwide repatriation and we also offer funeral plans. Members of the Channel Islands Coop can receive dividend on funeral services and pre-paid funeral plans once the cooling-off period is complete, providing the plan is still in force. Terms and conditions apply.
Taking out a pre-paid funeral plan is a simple and straightforward way to pre-arrange the details of your funeral and make provision for the cost. You are also in control of how you pay for your plan, this can be:
- One, single complete payment
- Instalments paid over a period of 12 months
- A combination of both - a lump sum payment and instalments.
Feel free to contact us to discuss further what payment plan would best suit you and your needs.
Funeral plans are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK. This regulation only applies where the funeral is to be carried out in the UK, which does not include the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man for these purposes. Plans sold to Channel Islands residents for funerals in the Channel Islands will not be covered by this regulation. As such you will not have the benefit of the UK’s Financial Services Compensation Scheme or Financial Ombudsman Service.
Terms and conditions apply to funeral plans – please ask us if you have any questions.
Funeral plans are supplied by Ecclesiastical Planning Services.
Services & facilities
When you have contacted us to let us know of a death, we will arrange to collect the person who has died and bring them into our care. We will look after them, and you, as you then start to think about arranging a funeral service and we guide and support you along the way.
We will then ring you to arrange an appointment to discuss things in more detail. We can meet you at our funeral home, or at your home and guide you through the different decisions to be made. You don’t need to decide everything at once and things may change along the way but we are always available 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, should you want to contact us at any time.
We have two rooms at our funeral home which can be used, free of charge, for small services. We also have various ashes keepsakes for you to see in person, should you wish.
Please come in and see us any time or contact us for more information or quotations.
We are proud to set the standard of funeral care in Jersey. Backed by the Co-operative principle of openness, honesty and caring for others, we offer a level of dignity, support and attention that you should not only expect but need.
