Coronavirus (Covid-19) – Keeping You Informed

    As a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic we would like to reassure you that our focus is to ensure that we continue to treat your loved one with the utmost dignity and respect whilst at the same time, protecting our clients and our staff.
    As you will be aware, things are constantly changing and we are taking advice from Public Health England, Government departments and our trade organisation, the National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF) to ensure that we are working within the current guidelines.

    We are dealing with more clients by telephone at present, so if you are experiencing difficulty in getting through to us, please continue to try or alternatively, email us and we will contact you as soon as possible.
    When you do speak with us, we may ask you some additional questions relating to both the person who has passed away and yourself. This is to ensure that we are treating all fairly and are working within the current regulations.
    We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding in these difficult times.

  • A personal thank you to both you and your staff for the excellent way in which you conducted all the funeral arrangements for my late Father. When one is faced with a sudden bereavement it is a great shock and it was very comforting to be so pleasantly received and well looked after by everyone at J. P. Keates and Son. All the funeral arrangements went seamlessly and it was very comforting on the day of the funeral to be guided professionally through the whole process.


  • Thank you all so much for all you have done, everyone said how special you made it. Your care of myself, meticulous actions and the friendliness of you all always made me feel special. Thank you for taking the responsibility for all the planning  from my shoulders and puling everything together.

    Mrs. H (Staffs Moorlands)

  • Thank you to you all for the excellent way you arranged the funeral. Everything was first class, nothing was too much trouble to you which gave me reassurance. There is no one who can provide such a first class service like yourselves.

    Mr. A. (Staffs Moorlands)
